Colbert on Trump Backtracking on Mexico Paying for the Wall: Now, We’re the One Who Are Crazy Then

‘If only there was a letter you wrote to ‘The Washington Post,’ where you explained your plan’

RUSH EXCERPT

COLBERT: “But why is there a funding stand-off to begin with? Trump promised that Mexico would pay for the wall. Or did he?”
TRUMP [clip]: “When, during the campaign, I would say Mexico’s going to pay for it— obviously, I never said this and I never meant that Mexico would write a check.”
COLBERT: “Oh, so we’re crazy. If only there was a letter you wrote to “The Washington Post,” where you explained your plan and said that Mexico could “Make a one-time payment of $5 to $10 billion. Whoa. Wow. So Mexico could make a payment. That quote just came back and smacked you in the ass. But we know you enjoyed that. President Spanky. I don’t know if that’s the sound he makes. And we just found out something we already knew. Trump’s wall is not quite as impenetrable as trump claims, after homeland security conducted a test on the prototype and easily sawed a hole in it.”
