Exposed: Stephen Colbert does not want you to see this video


You’d be forgiven for thinking this footage came from another universe. In late 2015, Stephen Colbert opened The Late Show by telling his audience, “We have a great show tonight. Donald Trump is here.”

The announcement was followed by cheers and applause. “Everybody loves him,” Colbert said. Colbert went on to praise Trump for doing a “fantastic job,” and for running for president.

“Speaking of doing a fantastic job, you are setting the world on fire right now… I want to thank you, not only for being here, but I want to thank you for running for president.”
