‘It Got Weird’: Stephen Colbert Spots Moment Trump Tried ‘Something New’ At Rally

“Late Show” host Stephen Colbert said Donald Trump “tried something new” at his rally in Wisconsin this week.

He tried being nice.

“And, of course, it got weird,” Colbert said as he rolled footage of the former president commenting on the scene.

“I mean, what’s better, being with you right now ― look at that beautiful lake, that beautiful lake. Beautiful, right?” Trump said. “What’s better: This, or sitting on the Pacific or the Atlantic, which has sharks? You don’t have sharks, see? That’s a big advantage. I’ll take the one without the sharks.”

“Sure,” Colbert agreed. “That’s what everyone associates with Wisconsin: No sharks.”

Trump really dislikes sharks. Porn star Stormy Daniels, who says she had an affair with the then-TV host in 2006, has said Trump was “terrified of sharks” and told her “I hope all the sharks die.”

Trump admitted as much himself in 2020, saying he would never donate to a cause to save sharks.

“I say, ‘No, thank you, I have other things I can contribute to,’” he said at a rally.
