Michael Ian Black Uses His Passion for Subway to Explain How We Got President Trump

Here’s a great clip from last night’s Late Show, where Stephen Colbert chats with Subway sandwich connoisseur Michael Ian Black about how exactly we got to this point with our insane president — something Black can explain perfectly through the way he knows best: ordering a Subway sandwich. “Somehow in my arrogance, in my hubris, I had decided that I knew better than this Subway sandwich artist how much dressing a Subway sandwich should have. Why did I do that? Was it sexism? Perhaps. Was it subconscious racism? You bet it was,” Black says. “Two years later, Stephen, Donald Trump is elected President of the United States, because jerks like me think they know how to do everything better than the professionals who do it for a living. And that’s how we got where we are today.”
