Stephen Colbert mocked President Donald Trump for hiring his daughter during his monologue on “The Late Show” on Thursday.
“Ivanka Trump will beocme a federal employee in the White House, serving as the president’s eyes and ears … no word yet on who will be operating his brain,” Colbert said, calling the move “Bring Your Daughter to Govern Day.”
The White House announced on Wednesday that Ivanka would be taking an official role in the Trump administration as assistant to the president, joining her husband Jared Kushner, who currently serves as senior adviser.
“So he’s hired his daughter as assistant to the president, his son-in-law as his senior adviser, and put Eric and Donald Jr. in charge of the national hair gel reserve,” Colbert joked, throwing a barb at the Trump sons over their hairstyles.
And what role does that leave for the president himself? Not much. At least according to Colbert’s “White House Chore Wheel.”
“This week, Ivanka’s on domestic policy, Jared’s on foreign policy, and looks like the president is loading the dishwasher again. It’s a lot of responsibility,” he said.
