President Donald Trump has travelled to his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, for a 17 -day “working vacation” and Stephen Colbert is on a mission to discover what he’s up to.
While the night host acknowledges Trump deserves a breach after “months of grueling golf at Mar-a-Lago”, the president insists he will be busy running the whole time.
“Meetings and bellows? ” Colbert said. “Wow, Trump has to do all that during his vacation? Man, I would not want to work for Vladimir Putin. Tough boss.”
However, a video demonstrating Trump taking one of his “high-level meetings” with a bridal party leaked over the weekend. So perhaps it’s not so hard to work for Putin.
The Russian president himself is on vacation, taking two weeks off in Siberia where he’s angling, swimming, hiking, and in general living his best life.
He also frequently posed with his shirt off. “Man, those sanctions have already devastated the Russian shirt industry, ” Colbert joked.
