Stephen Colbert, in his opening monologue on Tuesday, made fun of U.S. President Donald Trump’s tour of the world’s holy sites this week, calling it “Trump’s magical misery tour.”
- Melania Trump covers her hair at the Vatican, unlike in Saudi Arabia and the Western Wall
- Donald Trump receiving criticism from alt-right leaders after Israel, Saudi Arabia visits
- Netanyahu: Trump's Jerusalem visit proved historic connection between Jews and Western Wall
- Hundreds protest against Trump at rallies in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv
Colbert’s ‘God’ character, which appears projected on the ceiling every so often to talk the host through moral problems, interrupted the monologue to discuss Trump’s holy visits.
"You pray with three major religions in one week?" ‘God’ said, "I don't know, it seems a little needy."
When Colbert asked ‘God’ to divulge what the President had prayed for at the Western Wall, ‘God’ hedged. "Sorry, Stephen” he said. “Unlike some people, I don't give away top secret information from Israel."
Colbert then asked ‘God’ if all the attention was flattering. "This whole thing's just a distraction from the Russia scandal,” ‘God’ replied. “I mean, Trump even asked me if I could get James Comey to stop the FBI investigation."
