On Tuesday’s debut of “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” America’s favorite political-satirist-cum-Sunday-school-teacher asked the man everyone thought would be the Republican presidential front-runner, Jeb Bush, to please read off answers that were “just a little bit Trumpier.”
Bush was game. “I will build a wall between the United States and Iran and make Mexico pay for it,” he intoned, with an uncharacteristic trace of braggadocio. “I will turn the National Mall into a luxury gulf course, and China will respect that.”
To loud laughter, Bush went on, “I promise to put Meatloaf on the ten-dollar bill, and give Little Jon a cabinet position, which would send the message that this great nation will never turn down for what.” The popular Lil Jon and DJ Snake song blared.
