Colbert Blasts Trump's 'Both Sides' Comments: 'What the Hell are You Talking About?'Entertainment

Stephen Colbert is now the latest to rip Donald Trump’s Tuesday statement on the violent white nationalist riots in Charlottesville, Virgina, where the president blamed “both sides” for the events that left one woman dead and 19 others injured after a man drove his car into a crowd of counter-protestors.

On Tuesday’s Late Show, the host criticized Trump for saying he has “no doubt about” the white nationalists, Neo-Nazis, and KKK not being the sole culprits in the events that transpired over the weekend.

“The only thing I’m doubting is whether you’re still going to be president by Friday,” declared Colbert. “Because what the hell are you talking about?”

Later on Twitter, Colbert continued to share his thoughts on Trump’s comments. Along with a clip from the president’s speech, he wrote, “‘I don’t agree with the Nazis, but they had a permit for Normandy & the Allies didn’t’ -Donald Trump.”

Watch the clip above.

The Late Show airs on CBS at 11:35 p.m ET.
