Colbert interviews 'God' about Trump taking out North Korea

On Wednesday night, Stephen Colbert kicked off his show by addressing the increased tensions between the US and North Korea.

"But certainly I think that unless we seriously provoke the North Koreans into believing that we're coming after their leadership or indeed the survival of things as they know it then we shouldn't expect that the North Koreans are going to conduct a major provocation without any sort of prompting".

The former ambassador said while tossing around phrases like President Donald Trump's "fire and fury" comment is frowned upon, it doesn't bring back any memories from decades ago.

"Faced with the greatest challenge of his presidency, Donald Trump stepped up and, in a moment of pure statesmanship, de-escalated the rhetoric and brought calm to our anxious nation", Colbert lied, cueing up a clip of Trump, at his New Jersey golf club, delivering his "They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen" speech.

"Oh, we've seen it before", Colbert reacted.

Just kidding. Donald Trump met the dictator's warning word for word - threatening the Asian country with "fire, fury and (frankly) power".

President Trump would be wise to tone down his heated rhetoric against North Korea to avoid escalating the conflict with the rogue nation's erratic ruler, Massachusetts Congressman Joseph P. Kennedy III warned on Herald Radio today, as he also advocated to remove sole authority from the president to launch a preemptive nuclear strike. I'm not saying what we have isn't special. "He certainly shouldn't doubt the will of the United State".

The Late Show host then mentioned how North Korea threatened the US territory of Guam in reaction to Trump's comments. And I just started the "Handmaid's Tale.' You know Kim Jong-un is insane, right?"
