In what could be the most anticipated interview in The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’s super long two-week history finally happened on Tuesday night. The cheeto-head everyone loves to hate paid a visit to the Late Show set, and it was…jovial? Fraternal? Trump was almost likeable thanks to Colbert, who softly ribbed him about some of his foreign policy ideas (CHINA!). The best segment of the interview was the “Who Said It?” game Colbert had Trump play, who had to pick between the fake republican Colbert of the Colbert Report, himself, and in one instance, Charles Manson. Quotes included “you can’t make this stuff up” gems like: “It’s freezing and snowing in New York! We need global warming!” Lighthearted and funny, the interview managed to do something that seemed almost impossible: humanize The Donald.
