Stephen Colbert Spots Massive Self-Own In Trump's Kanye-Fuentes Excuse

"The Late Show" host wasn't sure Trump's defense was what he thought it was.

Donald Trump tried to explain away his controversial dinner meeting with antisemite rapper Ye and Holocaust denier Nick Fuentes by claiming he didn’t know who Fuentes was when he showed up, saying the meal was only supposed to be with the musician formerly known as Kanye West.

Stephen Colbert wasn’t buying it on Monday’s broadcast of “The Late Show.”

“Not sure ‘I was only scheduled to have dinner with one famous antisemite’ is the defense he thinks it is,” he said.

Colbert also riffed on the moment that West claimed he’d asked Trump to be his vice president. “How would it even work? Can you send a mob to hang yourself?” the late night comedian cracked.
