Stephen Colbert Can’t Believe Donald Trump Actually Bragged About His Penis at a GOP Debate


On Monday, Stephen Colbert took a few minutes to address Donald Trump’s boast about the size of his penis during the most recent Republican debate, expressing his utter disbelief that such a vulgar remark could be made by a presidential candidate. At one point, the Late Show host couldn’t even keep a straight face while delivering a joke about the GOP front-runner’s less than presidential comments.

“This man is talking about the size of his schvantz in a presidential debate,” Colbert said. “This is someone who could have his fingers on the button—and God, I hope it’s his finger. We don’t know if it could reach the button. We have no idea! The Russians could launch and he could be trying to reach the button.”

“I can’t believe that these are absolutely legitimate jokes to be making about a presidential debate right now,” he added.

WE'RE TAKING A SHORT BREAK…

If you value the reporting you get from Mother Jones and you can right now, please join your fellow readers who pitch in from time to time to keep our democracy-advancing, justice-seeking journalism charging hard (and to help us avoid a real budget crunch as June 30 approaches and our fiscal year ends).
