  • Stephen Colbert interviews Donald Trump without Expected Fireworks

Stephen Colbert of “The Late Show” fame interviewed Donald Trump recently and it all went without any of the expected fireworks. Colbert even apologized to the man who is famous for the art of the deal.

The rich and famous Donald Trump is running for the seat of President of the United States in the upcoming election and he is fighting for the slot from a Republican stance.

Although not very popular among Hispanics, the Donald (as he is known) does have an edge when it comes to sheer self-confidence and a high regard for himself. This might prove to be his ticket to the presidency or it might prove to be his Achilles Heel.

Donald Trump made a formal appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. He entered the arena in a cool, calculated manner without any of the blustering attitude he is so famous for. The result was that the host Stephen Colbert was taken by surprise.

As Colbert began the skewering process, he noticed only one thing. Trump was not his usual self. He was literally playing hard to get. Colbert started off by saying that the Republican Party considered Trump as a symbol of the popular saying that money talks. Trump responded in a sober and sensible manner without taking the bait. 

Then Colbert asked the Donald regarding his plans on building a wall between Mexico and the US of A. Donald Trump said that that was only normal since right now Americans neither had a wall nor did they have a nation as far as he was concerned.

To add insult to injury Trump said that the payment for the wall must be made by the Mexican President. This got Stephen tongue-tied and he was left in a lurch. He didn’t know what to say since he was tied up in knots. 

Finally, as a last ditch effort, Colbert asked Trump whether he still believed in the controversy surrounding President Obama’s birthplace. Trump parried the attack by saying that he did not want to talk about the whole deal anymore.

He absolutely refused to be sucked into the controversy he was responsible for stirring up once upon a time. Trump often made rejoinders in a neutral manner. He often agreed with Colbert and did not get reactive.

In fact, he was pro-active to the extreme. And finally when Colbert apologized to him for anything he might have said about Trump in the past, Trump said that this was not a fact in a very pleasant way.

It seems that less is definitely more. Trump himself did not apologize except in a roundabout way to the audience that appreciated his sobriety and common sense as opposed to Colbert’s funny man antics.
