Stephen Colbert Pokes Fun at Trump-Led RNC With Monster Truck Rally-Type Ad
"There's going to be yelling, angry white men, hats with words on them!"
Stephen Colbert is pretty sure the Republican National Convention will be the ultimate reality show moment thanks to presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, and he took it upon himself to put together an ad for what the Trump-led event might feature. The spot, which aired on Thursday night's Late Show, is packaged like a monster truck rally ad.
"There's going to be yelling, angry white men, hats with words on them!" the faux commercial announcer says. "Watch Donald Trump rope and brand a naked Ted Cruz."
Other events at the "Trump Republican National Convention" include Dr. Ben Carson's Freakatorium and a marital cage match with Trump's current and previous wives — only one will leave the ring.
Everyone is welcome at the faux event — except "Mexicans, Muslims and women who are not a '10'."
Colbert indicated the ad was inspired by Trump saying he would announce his running mate at the RNC, much like crowning a winner on Trump's former reality show, The Apprentice.
