Stephen Colbert Responds to Trump’s Budget Cuts with a New “Werd” Segment

Here’s a clip from last night’s Late Show, where Stephen Colbert welcomes back his longtime “conservative pundit colleague” Stephen Colbert to lead a brand new segment of “The Werd” defending Trump’s cruel budget plan that targets programs like Meals on Wheels. “You can’t just focus on helping the needy and forget the people whose taxes pay for it. That’s like praying for the accident victim who needed a transfusion and forgetting about the guy who’s walking around a pint light now. Give that guy a cookie!” Colbert says. “Congress are the only ones who can make a budget, so my real worry here is that a lot of people might go to House.gov and find out how to call their congressman and tell them to protect kids and old people.” Watch the full segment above.
