Colbert Isn’t as Impressed With Trump as Trump Is With Himself After Al-Baghdadi Raid (Video)

Tuesday, October 29, 2019

Stephen Colbert might be willing to give credit where credit is due regarding the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, but during his “The Late Show” monologue on Monday Colbert still took a moment to point out how weird Donald Trump’s celebratory press conference was.

On Sunday, Trump held a nearly 50-minute press conference in which, among other things, he repeated called the military operation that led to al-Baghdadi’s death “the big one,” “the biggest their is” and so on, and said it was bigger and more important than the assassination of Osama bin Laden.

“You know how I know that killing bin Laden was a big deal?” a skeptical Colbert said. “Because Barack Obama never had to say that killing bin Laden was a big deal.”

“So is this,” Colbert clarified, then joked that it was bigger in at least one way, because of Trump’s 50-minute press conference versus Obama’s 11 minute speech announcing bin Laden’s death.

Finally, Colbert took issue with Trump repeatedly stating that al-Baghdadi “died like a dog.”

“Ah yes. I remember when I was a child and my dog, Mr. Fluffles got sick,” Colbert said. “We did the humane thing: We gave him a suicide vest and chased him down a tunnel.”
