Put your hamberders down and watch this recut Big & Tasty TV spot. Stephen Colbert’s Tuesday cold open was a clever edit of a classic Donald Trump McDonald’s ad. In this version, Grimace will be the one asking the questions, thank you very much.

The large, purple anthropomorphic being of indeterminate species with short arms and legs demanded to know if Trump is “a Russian agent,” and why did he “conceal the notes from [that] private meeting with Putin”?

“Are you selling out the country for personal gain?” Grimace peppered the current president.

“Why you pulling out of NATO?” he pressed.

Grimace ain’t so dim-witted in this version, also posing the following: “Why have at least 16 of your associates met with Russians?”

And: “Why did you lie about the Trump Tower meeting?”

Finally, Ronald McDonald’s pal asked the commercial’s director how much time they had, because they “haven’t even gotten to the pee-pee tape yet.”

Grimace, indeed.
