When Donald Trump ordered the United States military to fire 59 tomahawk cruise missiles at an Syrian airbase earlier this month, the reaction from the American people and the mainstream news media was mixed. After Trump broke his silence about what took place behind the scenes last week, Stephen Colbert was quick to offer his thoughts.

Colbert on Trump

Not long after the start of the month of April, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad launched a chemical attack on his own people. The results left nearly 100 dead, which included innocent women and children who were left as collateral damage in an ongoing civil war in the region.

Ivanka Trump was reportedly so bothered by the visuals of the deceased children that she pushed her father to make a move. Within 48 hours, Donald Trump gave word to the military, and not long after the airbase in Syria was attacked. While most countries around the world supported the move by the president, rival nations like Russia, North Korea, and Iran all pushed back. Trump first spoke about how it all took place during an interview with Fox News host Maria Bartiromo, which was heavily mocked during the April 17 edition of "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" on CBS.

As Stephen Colbert kicked off Monday night's edition of "The Late Show," the host made sure to focus on Donald Trump and the aforementioned Fox News interview.

Colbert poked fun at the billionaire real estate mogul for going into detail about how he spoke with Chinese President Xi Jinping at his Mar-a-Lago resort, briefing the leader on how the Syrian strike went down while eating a "beautiful piece of chocolate cake." "What's the proper wine pairing with a cruise missile? Is it a Merlot, or something more dessert-y like Sauterne?" Colbert sarcastically wondered. Colbert then ran a clip of a mock radio address by Winston Churchill that trolled Trump over his cake comments.

Correct the geography

Not stopping there, Stephen Colbert played a clip from the interview where Donald Trump mistakenly says the United States attacked Iraq, before Maria Bartiromo quickly jumps in to correct the commander in chief that the country bombed was actually Syria. "South Korea, before the war starts, you might want to break out the spray paint," Colbert said, before showing a map with spray paint written across South Korea spelling "The good Korea (Do not bomb)." While Colbert took time to take humorous shots at the president, even some of his supporters lashed out, accusing Trump of backing down from his campaign promise of not attacking other countries without the United States being directly threatened or attacked.
