Stephen Colbert decodes the riddle of Trump and the words “radical Islam” (video)


“Stephen Colbert criticized Donald Trump’s response to the Orlando nightclub shooting and mocked the candidate’s insinuation that “there’s something going on” with President Obama when it comes to the debate over the term “radical Islam.”

Colbert first addressed Trump’s tweets in response to the massacre at the gay club, in which Trump said “I called it” and “appreciate the congrats for being right on radical Islamic terrorism.” The late-night host sarcastically compared Trump’s post-Orlando tweets to former President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s remarks to Congress after the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor.

The focus then turned to Trump’s June 13 speech, in which the presumptive GOP nominee decried Obama and Hillary Clinton for rejecting the “radical Islam” terminology, among other jabs.

“This whole speech, with its nativism, its fear-mongering and especially its self-aggrandizing in the face of tragedy feels like a new low,” Colbert said. “It makes me long for the days when Trump was just bragging about the size of his penis.”
