Stephen Colbert mocks Trump’s ‘unbelievably sad’ and ‘pathetic’ statement on Covid-19 vaccine

The TV host addressed the statement on Thursday’s episode of his Late Show.

In the message, released earlier this week, Trump seeks to take credit for the Covid-19 vaccine, saying he “[hopes] everyone remembers when they’re getting” the injection that “if I wasn’t president, you wouldn’t be getting that beautiful ‘shot’ for 5 years, at best, and probably wouldn’t be getting it at all”. Trump then reiterated: “I hope everyone remembers.”

Colbert read the statement out loud, then commented: “First of all, that’s unbelievably sad. Second, pathetic.

“Third, how did we even find out about this statement? He can’t tweet this stuff. Did he just print it out and staple it to telephone poles around Palm Beach? He might as well have just released, ‘ex-prez will take credit, and teach you guitar.’”

Twitter announced in January this year it had permanently banned Trump from using the service following the Capitol riot.

Referring to the move, Colbert wondered: “We banned him from Twitter. Can we ban him from paper, is that possible?”

President Joe Biden has announced plans to direct all states, tribes, and territories to make all adult Americans eligible for the Covid-19 vaccine by 1 May.

He has said his goal is to get the country “closer to normal” by 4 July 2021.
