Stephen Colbert has a simple request for President Trump: Don’t fire Sean Spicer.
The CBS late-night host voiced his concern Monday following an interview over the weekend between Trump and Fox News’ Jeanine Pirro for her for “Justice With Judge Jeanine” show in which he talked about the fate of Spicer and the idea of doing his own media conferences.
“Please don’t do your own press conferences,” Colbert asked the POTUS. “They are always such fountains of eloquence and bastions of dignity. What would we make jokes about the next day?”
“Of course, no press conferences might mean no Sean Spicer, but Trump put that rumor to rest — sort of,” Colbert said as he aired footage of the president calling the press secretary “a wonderful human being, a nice man.”
He evaded the direct question from Pirro of “will he be there tomorrow?” merely saying: “He’s doing a great job, but he gets beat up.”
The conclusion the “Late Show” host came to?
“He’s firing Sean Spicer … luckily that time Sean spent in the bushes will come useful when he’s working at Home Depot.”
Colbert then got serious for a moment.
“I have to say something here, Donald Trump, if you’re watching. First of all, you’re a bad president, please resign,” he said.
“Second of all, please, please, please don’t take Sean Spicer from us! Where am I going to get my daily dose of veiled anger and condescension?”
