In his upcoming book, “The Chief’s Chief,” Meadows says Trump was told he had tested positive for COVID-19 just three days before his first 2020 presidential debate with Joe Biden. A second test returned negative, but Trump was hospitalized with the coronavirus days later. Trump has denied that he was coronavirus-positive during the debate.
Meadows claims Trump had an expletive-riddled response to being told he’d tested positive, but he doesn’t write out the curse words in the book. Instead, citing his devout Christianity, he says Trump’s reaction rhymed with, “Oh spit, you’ve gotta be trucking lidding me.”
Colbert couldn’t help but laugh at the notion.
“Meadows, of course, happy to help undermine democracy, but he won’t swear,” the comedian joked, before suggesting an updated name for the memoir: “I’m A Ducking Piece Of Zit With My Nose Up Rump’s Grasshole.”
