Stephen Colbert used a swastika to explain Donald Trump’s campaign

Donald Trump used the Orlando shooting as an “I told you so” moment and that didn’t sit well with talk show host Stephen Colbert.

On Tuesday’s ‘The Late Show’ Colbert was quick to unravel Donald Trump’s campaign in true Colbert style.

As investigators were still determining the details surrounding the Orlando shooting, Trump delivered a speech stating that the shooter was born in Afghanistan, and was a radical terrorist.

It was later revealed he was born to Afghan immigrants and was conceived in New York City, just like Trump.

Trump then stuck to his plan as the next US President to ban Muslims from the United States.

“This whole speech, with its nativism, its fearmongering, 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.”

Trump also said that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton were both unable to deal with radical terrorism effectively.

How Cognitive Bias Shapes Political Opinions and Elections

“They have put political correctness above common sense, above your safety, and above all else. I refuse to be politically correct,” Trump said.

Colbert commented, “Donald Trump refuses to be politically correct. And just to be safe, he refuses to be correct.”

Trump challenged others to make sense of his statements and Colbert jumped at the opportunity.

The late-night host brought in a chalkboard to chart Trump’s statements and — well — let’s just say his diagram seemed perfect given Trump’s stances.
