Stephen Colbert says former President Donald Trump bears a “particular responsibility” for expressing and amplifying the hatred that led to this week’s deadly capturing spree in Atlanta.
Police say, Robert Aaron Long, 21, fatally shot eight of us, along with six women of Asian descent.
Colbert’s well-known assault comes after Trump spent loads of 2020 using anti-Asian rhetoric and slurs within the entrance of his cheering throngs to try to deflect blame for his mishandling of the coronavirus pandemic.
“He’s clearly just using hate as a tool to blame his own failings on a foreign country,” Colbert talked about after having fun with a supercut of Trump using ethnic slurs.
“This will always be part of his legacy. He will always be remembered as a hateful man who left a stain not just on the White House pillows, but on our whole society by inviting his MAGA minions to an all-you-can-hate racist buffet.”
“I hope one day he’ll come to understand how much pain he’s caused,” Colbert talked about, sooner than correcting himself: “I’m sorry, I misread that. I hope one day he sits on his own balls. Like, really hard.”

Colbert moreover known as out the 12 Republican lawmakers who voted in opposition to honoring people who protected Congress all through the violent Jan. 6 assault on the U.S. Capitol carried out by pro-Trump insurrectionists.
Tuesday’s vote was nearly unanimous as lawmakers from every occasion accepted the Congressional Gold Medals.
But Colbert named and shamed the 12 who refused, calling them “The Legion Of Dumb.”
