“It’s day 4 of ‘Sh**hole Gate,’” Colbert said in his opening monologue, adding that he was “confident that’s going to be bleeped because CBS has higher standards than the president.”

The host pointed to Trump’s alleged remarks in regards to Haiti and various African countries where he reportedly called them “sh*thole” countries.

Colbert pointed to articles claiming Trump had “called friends to brag” about the comments, adding: “He’s like a toddler calling his mom to the potty, ‘Come look at the load I dropped into the national discourse.’”

He also called out Trump’s denial, in which the U.S president tweeted, “The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used.”

“He’s like the racist Rumpelstiltskin,” Colbert joked, saying: “Unless ye guess my racist speech, the president ye shall not impeach.”
