Stephen Colbert had some questions for President Trump after Tuesday's summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un, so on Tuesday's Late Show, he stepped in for ABC's George Stephanopoulos. "Kim Jong Un got respect on the world stage, an end to military exercises between the United States and South Korea, and no timeline to give up nuclear weapons or human rights abuses. Did you get anything in return?" he asked. Trump showed off his new tattoo.
There was news from the summit, Colbert said. For example, "Trump ate a vegetable! Wow! They said it couldn't be done, they scoffed. By the way, Korean stuffed cucumber is stuffed with Koreans — Kim is a monster."
And after Trump made a fat joke and showed Kim the inside of his limo, they signed their "historish agreement," he said. According to the reviews, Trump didn't get much, including what he'd asked for. "You know he ordered a hamburger and they gave him a cucumber," Colbert joked. "Kim gave us so little, you have to promise more than Kim did when you sign the iTunes user agreement — and I'm not making that up."
"Usually when Trump signs an agreement with a foreigner, its a prenup, and those are all in writing," Jimmy Kimmel explained on Kimmel Live, speculating that Trump was so eager to look like he was making a deal, he'd sign anything. "In fact, the only thing we know they signed was a declaration of friendship — for real."
Trump explained he didn't need to record the specifics of his oral agreements with Kim "because he has 'one of the great memories of all time' — except when it comes to Stormy Daniels, then it's all a blur," Kimmel said. But the White House "tried to fill in the blanks," he said, and in Kimmel Live's imagining, Trump gave away a comically large number of things. Watch below. Peter Weber
