Watch Colbert Unleash on Trump in Hilarious GOP Debate Recap

Politics

Last night on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Colbert discussed the latest GOP debate, which was in Las Vegas Tuesday night. Colbert opens with an apology: "I'm tired because I was up late watching the whole thing and definitely not at the CBS Christmas party instead."

The debate had some serious "lies and distortions," according to Adam Johnson at AlterNet with the debate focusing almost entirely on terrorism and ISIS. The only mention of the groundbreaking Paris Agreement came from Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who said world leaders "should have been talking about destroying ISIS" in Paris rather than climate change.

Colbert has had some very humorous analyses of past debates, and his segment last night falls right in line.
