Jon Stewart Trashes Trump As A "Sociopath" On Stephen Colbert's Show

On Monday's edition of The Late Show on CBS, Colbert made like the Genie in Aladdin and granted Trump's wish for "equal time" praising him and the Republican party. Shortly before that, the commander-in-chief had also complained about "unfunny" late night hosts not giving him equal time on the television.

However, he completely lost it when Colbert brought up Trump's freaky (read: disturbing) "calm before the storm" quote. "Kind of like if The Big Bang Theory was immediately followed by The Creationist Bazinga Funtime Hour, starring Jesus and his roommate, a T. rex". He later forced himself to say, "Given the choice between having hot lava poured into my pee hole and Donald Trump being president... So you'll be the balance, I'll do my usual unfair slamming of the president, and you'll provide the counterweight". He started out tame but could only compliment Trump for being "not a cannibal".

While Stewart thought he was up to the task, he initially had difficulty coming up with something positive to say. "Could I have more time?"

"WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH THIS GUY?!" yells Stewart, asking desperately "what kind of a sociopath would use that terminology while people are still literally cleaning up from storms!" Will civilization make it to the fantasy suite? And "calm before the storm"?

Colbert's bright-side retort? "Donald not. a cannibal". When Colbert mentioned the tweet in which the president called for "equal time" on talk shows, Stewart - after being told by Colbert to "be positive" - took a few moments to think.

The tweet from Trump seemed likely to pick a fight, and did it ever. Pretending to choke back tears, Stewart began, "When I was a little boy, I used to dream at night". #JonStewart has something positive to say about the president. Which means you think we're amusing?
