"I come to work every day wanting to start the show with something other than Donald Trump," Stephen Colbert said on Tuesday's Late Show. "And yet, every day, more words come out of his face." Colbert had some quips on Trump's comments on sexual harassment, his unlikely pining for a Purple Heart medal, and President Obama's unprecedented comment that Trump is "unfit to serve as president." But he also spent a few minutes on Trump's tweeted photo of himself eating KFC, just like regular people do.

"There it is, extra crispy — and some chicken," Colbert said, pointing to the photo, choking on the punch line. Still, "I think he is blowing the whole 'man of the people' thing by eating his KFC with silverware," he added. "Excuse me, Mr. Trump: What part of finger-lickin' don't you understand?" Colbert also had some questionable advice for Trump: "If you want to seem relatable, don't eat KFC on a private jet; if you want to be relatable, eat lobster on a cross-town bus." He finished with a tirade against flossing, but not before one more poke at Trump for almost allowing a crying baby at a campaign event, before ordering the mom and infant ejected. "So close to humanity," Colbert sighed.
