President Trump: “I Like To Obey The Law”


>>WELCOME, ONE AND ALL, TO THE
LATE SHOW. I’M YOUR HOST, STEPHEN COLBERT. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
IT’S JUST OUR SECOND SHOW OF 2020. AND SO FAR, WE’RE NOT DOING TOO
WELL ON THE NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION OF “DON’T GO TO WAR
WE’VE BEEN WAITING ON PINS AND NEEDLES TO SEE HOW IRAN WOULD
RESPOND. IT’S LIKE OUR COUNTRY HAS SENT
AN IMPULSIVE LATE-NIGHT TEXT, AND NOW WE’RE STARRING AT THOSE
THREE LITTLE DOTS. THIS MORNING, A TOP IRANIAN
SECURITY OFFICIAL REVEALED THE COUNTRIES THAT DRAWN UP 13
SCENARIOS TO RETALIATE– ALSO KNOWN AS AN AYATOLLAH’S DOZEN. U.S. OFFICIALS ARE REPORTEDLY
CONCERNED THAT IRAN COULD TRY TO STRIKE A HIGH-LEVEL AMERICAN
LEADER. WELL, I DON’T KNOW WHO THE
EQUIVALENT OF SOLEIMANI WOULD BE IN THE UNITED STATES. WHO WOULD IT HAVE TO BE? IT WOULD HAVE TO BE A WELL-KNOWN
MILITARY LEADER WHO IS A NATIONAL SYMBOL OF SECURITY AND
STABILITY. OH, MY GOD! IT’S THE GENERAL! GET OUT OF THERE, SIR! TRUMP ISN’T REAL HAPPY ABOUT
IRAN NOT BEING REAL HAPPY WITH HIM, AND HE SHOWED THAT TODAY
WHEN HE MET WITH THE PRIME MINISTER OF GREECE FOR A VERY
GRUMPY EPISODE OF: “CHAIR CHAT!>>Stephen: TRUMP WAS ASKED
ABOUT HIS DECISION TO TAKE OUT SOLEIMANI, AND HE HAD NO
REGRETS.>>HE WAS TRAVELING WITH THE
HEAD OF HEZBOLLAH. THEY WERE NOT THERE TO DISCUSS A
VACATION. THEY WERE NOT THERE TO GO TO A
NICE RESORT SOMEPLACE IN BAGHDAD.>>Stephen: (AS TRUMP)
“AND THAT’S WHY WE BLEW HIM UP, BECAUSE HE WASN’T STAYING AT ONE
OF MY HOTELS.”( LAUGHTER )
( APPLAUSE )
AFTER GETTING CRITICIZED FOR
THREATENING TO ATTACK IRAN’S CULTURAL SITES, TRUMP WALKED IT
BACK… KIND OF SORT OF.>>THEY ARE ALLOWED TO KILL OUR
PEOPLE. THEY ARE ALLOWED TO MAIM OUR
PEOPLE. THEY ARE ALLOWED TO BLOW UP
EVERYTHING THAT WE HAVE, AND THERE IS NOTHING THAT STOPS
THEM, AND WE ARE, ACCORDING TO VARIOUS LAWS, SUPPOSED TO BE
VERY CAREFUL WITH THEIR CULTURAL HERITAGE. AND YOU KNOW WHAT? IF THAT IS WHAT THE LAW IS, I
LIKE TO OBEY THE LAW.( AS TRUMP )
“I LIKE TO OBEY THE LAW, JUST ASK PAUL MANAFORT OR MICHAEL
COHEN. IF THEY EVER GET OUT OF FEDERAL
PRISON, THEY WILL VOUCH FOR ME. THOSE TWO GUYS– THEY’RE GONNA,
THEY’RE GONNA… WITH THE GREEK PRIME MINISTER
SITTING BESIDE HIM, TRUMP ALSO PRAISED AMERICANS OF GREEK
HERITAGE.>>WE HAVE A TREMENDOUS GREEK
POPULATION, OVER THREE MILLION PEOPLE, AS I UNDERSTAND IT. THAT’S FANTASTIC. I REALLY FEEL I KNOW MOST OF
THEM. I THINK I KNOW ALL OF THEM, COME
TO THINK OF IT.>>Stephen: (AS TRUMP)
“I KNOW EVERYONE FROM GREECE: RIZZO. FRENCHY. DANNY ZUKO. ♪ TELL ME MORE
TELL ME MORE ♪ DID YOU GET VERY FAR? TELL ME MORE
♪ TELL ME MORE LIKE, DOES HE HAVE A CAR? ♪ UH-HUH, UH-HUH
UH-HUH, UH-HUH ♪( LAUGHTER )
( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
>>COME ON, MAN. GET INTO IT!>>Stephen: SO THINGS ARE BAD
WITH IRAN, BUT DON’T WORRY, THINGS ARE ALSO BAD WITH IRAQ. ON SUNDAY, IRAQ’S PARLIAMENT
VOTED TO EXPEL AMERICAN TROOPS. SO IRAQ SAID, “GET OUT.” AND THE PENTAGON WAS LIKE… OKAY. EVIDENTLY, BECAUSE YESTERDAY WE
FOUND OUT THE DEFENSE DEPARTMENT SENT IRAQ A LETTER SAYING THEY
WERE REPOSITIONING OUR FORCES FOR MOVEMENT OUT OF IRAQ. BUT ALMOST IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE
RELEASE OF THAT LETTER, OUR TOP GENERAL SAID THE LETTER
SUGGESTING THE U.S. WOULD WITHDRAW FROM IRAQ WAS A
“MISTAKE.” OOPSA-TROOPSY! THE PAYING SAYS THE COPY OF THE
ENSIGNED LETTER LEAKED TO THE PRESS WAS A DRAFT. IT WAS NEVER SENT AS A FORMAL
MEMORANDUM. YOU CAN’T SEND SOMEONE A LETTER
OF THAT MAGNITUDE AND THEN SAY IT DOESN’T MEAN ANYTHING. IT’S LIKE SAYING, “HONEY, THAT
BREAKUP EMAIL WAS FROM MY DRAFTS FOLDER. NOW, AS I WAS SAYING, WITH THIS
RING, I THEE WED.”

  1. Colbert forgets to mention that Solemani was a terrorist responsible for the terrorist attacks against their neighboring countries and killing hundreds of Americans and thousands of Middle Easterns. But go on woke king for sticking up for a country ran by a terrorist group that lashes women for wearing heals and hangs gay people on cranes. 🙈

  2. Iran should just Target Trump properties.. If their attack cost Trump money he would piss himself. He couldn't care less if someone got killed

  3. That moron tells the Greek prime minister that he has over 3 million Greek population in the USA and he knows most of them… oh no, wait, if he comes to think about it, he actually knows them all.
    It would be really funny if it wasn’t so pathetic.

  4. Stephen, please stop giving him airtime! The entire media should drop him. He wants you to to put him in the headlines? Then stop and watch him go even more insane! I beg you…..please!m

  5. Obama: hundreds of Airstrikes.
    The Left: its all cool bro.

    Trump: a dozen Airstrikes.
    The Left: HOW DARE YOU.

    Could you people be any more pathetic?

    🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️

  6. We still need to keep talking about Trump impeachment and the hearings or lack thereof in the Senate. and Mitch McConnell not allowing witnesses to testify even the ones that want to tell how this President violated the constitution of the United States of America and is guilty of High Crimes and Treason.

  7. He just does not have any clue. He was not with Hezbollah leader, he was with hashd shaabi leader. This guy does not even know who he killed.

  8. Don't forget, people…

    The last group that went around saying they want to destroy cultural sites was ISIS.

    Donny is definitely a 'good' guy, yup.

  9. Play it at half speed, starting 2:51 to 2:52, and watch the eyes of the other fellow….

  10. Iran will use domestic terrorists to get back to America but I pray they target trump properties and not innocent citizens

  11. We need a new president ASAP a good smart president and for trump to go to jail for killing Iran’s military leader and for putting us at risk

  12. Trump regarding 3 million Greeks in US: I know most of them, coming to think of it, I know all of them!! 🤣🤣 Such a perfect example of a COMPULSIVE LIAR!! 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

  13. "I like to obey the law". You had better Mr. President. You said you want(ed) to be the Law and Order President. Remember?

    As I type this the Iranians Attacked American bases in Iraq … What now Mr. President? You sissy Graham said on Hannity Show "the President has all the authority he needs under article 2 to respond". I suggest you ignore this mad man and take some aspirins and go lie down. And stay there ….

  14. you gotta love trump "thought"
    "…various laws, supposed to be very careful with their cultural….(ohh shit im being impeached for not following the law) "i like to obey the law"
    (Nailed it ! ivanka will be proud)

  15. Colbert: supporting a head terrorist state leader by undermining Trump in real time. Your stupidity is now historical.

  16. Hillary wants to fire someone: Fine. Trump fires him: Colbert's audience applauds and he chastises them.
    Obama tries to have general killed: Fine. Trump has him killed: Colbert and his audience boo.

  17. Thank you sir for continuing to do your work under these difficult times. It's hard to bring a light hearted view on such a grim topic.

    I guess it was like Charlie Chaplin during the war time, and other comedians who helped keep the people on the higher ground morally while the human drones went off to go and kill strangers, to say that killing strangers is wrong accept when the government says it's ok.

    The real heroes are those who said no to war, and know that just because something is legal – doesn't make it right. Bad laws are made and passed by bad politicians.

    Here's to hoping that this asshole Trump will be removed from office.

  18. Trump: “I love to obey the law.”
    Me: Yeah… I don’t see you with a lawful alignment. Your more chaotic neutral or chaotic evil to me.

  19. Obama tries to have Iranian general killed: Silence. Trump does it: Talking heads like Colbert tell you it's wrong.

  20. Obama tries to have Iranian general killed: Silence. Trump does it: Talking heads like Colbert and other champagne socialists tell you it's wrong.

  21. Obama tries to have Iranian general killed: Silence. Trump does it: Talking heads like Colbert and other champagne socialists tell you it's wrong.

  22. Obama tries to have Iranian general killed: Silence. Trump does it: Talking heads like Colbert and other champagne socialists tell you it's wrong.

  23. He makes up the law as he goes they forgot about the American drone attack in Venezuela
    He stretches the law allot
    To get away with stuff
    They will have to frisk him at the UN to see if
    He has any illegal drones
    At UN meetings they
    Have to tighten security
    at the UN
    🧐🧐🤣🤣👹👹

  24. You people on the left are seriously doing your best to resurrect the need for the word “retarded”…. 😂😂😂

  25. I think this is the most liberal comments section I have ever seen. You guys should stop watching this guy, he knows nothing about anything other than what to say on a late night show.

  26. "I like to obey the law" Nice. For me, I have to obey the law, because I'm not rich enough to get away with breaking it whenever I feel like it.

  27. He blew up Iran’s number two to prevent a war. What an arse hole he is. Does he really think people are that dumb. Now when they are bringing back the coffins he will blame the ayatollah. He is crazy

  28. Colbert has become the least funny comedian on late night tv. He should move to CNN or MSNBC for his nightly attacks on Trump. He is like a broken record. Should send his resume out for 2021.

  29. man it was funny when he was doing all the stupid stuff and it didn't really have any serious consequences now he did something so stupid that it may cost a whole world war 3 💯😓😓😓😓😓😓😓😓😓😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

  30. US borrowed 7 trillion USD from China for to war in Iraqi. The money money needs to be repaid by 2025. US people know why you don't have medicare for all. You spent the money on war

  31. What law? Iraqi parliament just voted for american and british troops to leave their country but they do not want to. Is that legal?

  32. “They’re allowed to kill & meme are people” !!!! He says it like he is explaining the rules of a game! What is wrong with this guy! Seriously if that isn’t proof Trump is a psychopath, what is!?

  33. Trump is just the latest in a long line of war-waging administrations on both sides of the aisle. Is he a self-idolizing, self-enriching charlatan with pumpkin skin, losing large patches of hair on his scalp? Sure. But does that make him a vile, loathsome, infantile, uninformed cretin with little interest in the arena of facts? Sure. Still, apart from the rhetoric and divisive tone, are his outcomes much different than Bush/Cheney or leaders during virtually every war since WW2. Trillions spent on war, Wall St., oil and corporate interests, while wealth concentrates upward and the Earth fries. There's plenty of foul behavior all around.
