Stephen Colbert, the popular host of "The Late Show," delivered a blunt and powerful message about former
President Donald Trump on his latest show. Colbert's statement comes amidst growing concerns over Trump's increasingly aggressive and divisive rhetoric.
Colbert, known for his sharp wit and political commentary, didn’t mince words when he addressed his audience. “Donald Trump is a fascist,” he declared, highlighting the former president's use of language reminiscent of dictators like Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini.
This comparison was drawn based on Trump's recent statements vowing to eliminate left-wing “vermin” if re-elected.
The TV host emphasized the need for constant vigilance and memory of Trump's potential impact on the nation.
He graphically described this necessity as "metaphorically jam[ming] the sharpened stick of knowledge into the soft inner thigh of your mind." This striking metaphor was meant to reawaken awareness of the dangers posed by Trump and his allies gaining power again.
Colbert's comments are a part of a growing chorus of voices expressing alarm over Trump's language and actions, reflecting a deep concern about the direction of American politics and the former president's influence on it.
