Donald Trump has had a very rough week.
First, He was interviewed by Anderson Cooper after he got into trouble for retweeting an unflattering picture of Ted Cruz’s wife, Heidi, next to a picture of his own wife, the model. Trump explained the incident first by pretending he retweeted it because he thought the picture of Heidi was very nice, then became sullen when Cooper clearly wasn’t buying it and insisted “I didn’t start it.”
Cooper called him out for using kindergarten logic in defense of his ability to behave in a manner befitting the highest office of the land. Trump was not pleased. For video of the interview, click here.
Next, Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, was arrested for battery against a Brietbart reporter named Michelle Fields. Both Lewandowski and Trump denied that the incident happened and Lewandowski tweeted to Fields that she was “delusional” and that he had “never met” her. Video of the incident proved otherwise.

Steven Colbert decided that he should interview Trump to allow him to “address this controversy,” but it turns out that no one actually invited Trump. No worries, Colbert decided he would just say that Trump was “busy being on every other show on television” and then did even better than interview Donald Trump. He interviewed Cartoon Donald Trump!
Who wouldn’t prefer that, anyway?
‘I think he’s turned into a cartoon version of himself at this point. So instead, we invited a slightly less cartoonish version.’
The animated character who appeared next to Colbert for an interview sounded like Trump, and even looked like him, although his hair was slightly less offensive than the real thing.
‘Thank you for being here, Cartoon Donald Trump.’
‘Thank you Steven. It’s great to be here. He started it.’
The two discussed the tough interview Trump suffered at the hands of “The Legolas of Cable News,” Anderson Cooper.
‘Mr. Cartoon Trump, how do you respond to Anderson Cooper comparing you to a five-year-old?’
‘Anderson Cooper’s a dumb-dumb. He’s a stupid-head, a total poopy-pants, it’s sad.’
The two moved on to discuss the arrest of Trump’s campaign manager after he assaulted a female reporter. After a “no, he didn’t,” “yes, he did,” war, which Trump won by saying “no, he didn’t times infinity,” Colbert reminded him that the video clearly showed that he did.
‘Okay, maybe he did it, but she started it.’
