While President Donald Trump is usually the one who is the butt of the joke for comedians, his advisers and family members have also been used as a punch line. For Stephen Colbert, it's Trump's sons who were the latest target.

Colbert on the Trump family

When Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton to become to new President of the United States last November, the results took the world by surprise and was one of the biggest political upsets in recent history. With Trump now in the White House, anything seems possible in American politics, which has opened the door for a wide-range of possibilities.

Earlier this week, a report in Page Six noted that Donald Trump Jr. was exploring his options for a potential run for governor of New York. The younger Trump was allegedly quoted telling is friends that "doing deals is boring" and that "the politics bug bit me," while explaining that he thought he had a shot at being the next New York governor. Trump's other son, Eric Trump, has reportedly backed his brother on the issue, which was highlighted during the April 7 edition of "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert."

As part of his opening monologue on Friday, "The Late Show" host Stephen Colbert ripped into the two Trump brothers. "What's the lovable scamp up to?” Colbert wondered of Trump Jr. "Is he inventing a new hair-slicking technology?" he asked, before wondering again if he was "daydreaming about a new endangered species to shoot?"

Stephen Colbert then referenced the Page Six story and gave his response.

"That is absurd and will never happen," he said, before explaining that because of Trump's presidential victory, "Now, we're screwed." Colbert then mocked Trump Jr. again for calling a run for mayor "less interesting." "Considering your dad lost here by 90 points...That's like an eighth-grader saying, 'Scarlett Johansson?

Just not that interesting to me right now.'"

On Eric

Stephen Colbert then shifted his attention to Eric Trump, who he compared to an "80s movie henchmen with no speaking lines." "In a recent interview, Eric Trump defended his father's tendency to put his own offspring in charge, stating, "Nepotism is kind of a factor of life." "So he's aware enough to realize that he was born on third base, and competent enough not to have wandered out to the outfield," Colbert said.

Moving forward

Whether or not Donald Trump Jr. decides to run for governor or not, it appears that critics of the new administration are already getting set to offer their jokes if the decision is made to make a run. With the former host of "The Apprentice" in the White House, it's not far-fetched to see one of his children trying their hand at running for office at some point in the near future.
