Trump Pays $2 Million To Charity (By Court Order)

Trump Pays $2 Million To Charity (By Court Order)


WELCOME TO “THE LATE SHOW.” I’M YOUR HOST, STEPHEN COLBERT. IT IS TRISTATE. TRUMP’S HAD ANOTHER ROUGH WEEK
ON THE IMPEACHMENT FRONT, BUT HE’S GOT SOMETHING TO LOOK
FORWARD TO THIS WEEKEND. ON SATURDAY, HE’S GOING TO THE
ANNUAL ARMY-NAVY FOOTBALL GAME. NOW, THIS IS ONE SPORTING EVENT
WHERE TRUMP’S GOT A PRETTY GOOD CHANCE OF NOT GETTING BOOED. ( LAUGHTER )
AND EVEN IF HE IS, THE BOOING WILL BE HIGHLY REGIMENTED:
“SIR, BOO, SIR! PERMISSION TO TELL YOU THAT YOU
SUCK, SIR!” ( LAUGHTER )
( APPLAUSE ) SOON– SOON–
SOON, TRUMP COULD HAVE A WHOLE NEW MILITARY TEAM TO ROOT FOR,
BECAUSE THIS WEEK, THE HOUSE PASSED A BILL TO ESTABLISH SPACE
FORCE, WHICH WILL BE DEDICATED TO HANDLING THREATS IN SPACE. ( AS TRUMP )
“LOT OF HIGH-TECH THREATS UP THERE. I HEAR THEY’VE BEEN MAKING
SMALLER AND MUCH MORE PORTABLE YODAS.” ( LAUGHTER )
EVEN BEFORE THE BILL PASSED, TRUMP WAS ALREADY BOASTING ABOUT
SPACE FORCE.>>IT’S ONE OF THE BIGGEST
APPLAUSE OF ANYTHING. IT’S THE SIXTH BRANCH OF THE
UNITED STATES ARMED FORCES, THE SPACE FORCE.>>Stephen: “IT’S ONE OF THE
BIGGEST APPLAUSE”? ( AS TRUMP )
“I’LL DO ANYTHING PEOPLE CLAP FOR! WHO WANTS ‘FREE BEER FORCE’? HOW ABOUT
‘NAME-OF-THE-TOWN-I’M-IN FORCE’?”
BUT SPACE ISN’T AS LOFTY AS IT SOUNDS, BECAUSE THE NEW SPACE
FORCE WILL STILL BE HOUSED WITHIN THE AIR FORCE AND BE
STAFFED BY PERSONNEL WITHIN THE AIR FORCE WHO CURRENTLY WORK ON
SPACE. ( LAUGHTER )
THAT’S RIGHT: SPACE FORCE’S HEADQUARTERS WILL BE IN… PRE-EXISTING OFFICE SPACE! ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
NOW, THE REASON HOUSE DEMOCRATS GAVE TRUMP HIS SPACE FORCE IS
BECAUSE THE BILL THAT ESTABLISHED SPACE FORCE ALSO
CONTAINS THEIR FUTURISTIC DREAM PROJECT: PAID PARENTAL LEAVE FOR
FEDERAL WORKERS. THAT IS GREAT. HELL, YEAH, THAT IS REALLY GET. I’M NOT SURPRISED TRUMP AGREED
TO THAT. ( AS TRUMP )
“MAKES SENSE. WHEN THINGS GET PARENTAL, I
ALWAYS LEAVE.” BUT TRUMP’S NOT JUST GETTING
COOL SPACE TOYS THIS HOLIDAY SEASON. HE’S ALSO DOING SOME GIVING. THIS WEEK, WE LEARNED “HE PAID
$2 MILLION TO EIGHT CHARITIES.” THAT’S A GENEROUS GIFT THAT CAME
STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART OF THE NEW YORK COURT SYSTEM. BECAUSE TRUMP ONLY GAVE A DIME
BECAUSE HE WAS ORDERED BY A JUDGE WHO FOUND THE PRESIDENT
HAD ILLEGALLY USED FUNDS FROM HIS SUPPOSED CHARITY, THE
DONALD J. TRUMP FOUNDATION. THIS IS AN EXCITING MODERN TWIST
>>Audience: BOOO!>>YI AGREE. THIS IS AN EXCITING MODERN TWIST
ON THE ENDING TO “A CHRISTMAS CAROL.” ( AS SCROOGE )
“YOU, BOY! DOWN THERE! WHAT DAY IS IT, BOY?”
( AS CHILD ) “WHY, IT’S THE DAY YOU’RE
LEGALLY COMPELLED TO GIVE TO CHARITY, SIR! ( LAUGHTER )
I’VE GOT A SUBPOENA FOR A CHRISTMAS GOOSE!”
“DARLING BOY! CHARMING BOY!”
IN COURT, DONALD TRUMP ADMITTED TO SHOCKING MISUSE OF HIS
CHARITY’S FUNDS, INCLUDING GIVING HIS OWN PRESIDENTIAL
CAMPAIGN $2.8 MILLION FROM A VETERANS FUND-RAISER, AND
SPENDING $10,000 ON A PORTRAIT OF HIMSELF. ( AS TRUMP )
“IT IS SO BEAUTIFUL. IT’S LOOK A MIRROR THAT DOESN’T
KNOW WHEN I’M NAKED.” THIS I LIKE: TRUMP’S THREE ADULT
KIDS WERE OFFICERS OF THE FOUNDATION, AND AS PART OF THE
SETTLEMENT, ERIC, DON JR., AND IVANKA WERE ORDERED TO UNDERGO
MANDATORY TRAINING TO ENSURE THEY DO NOT ENGAGE IN SIMILAR
MISCONDUCT IN THE FUTURE. THAT MUST HAVE BEEN A BIG DAY
FOR ERIC. ( AS ERIC )
“GUYS IT WAS SO FUN– IT WAS SO FUN TO HANG OUT AFFECT AT
MANDATORY CHARITY CLASS! HEY, LET’S HAVE A CLASS REUNION
RIGHT NOW! COME BACK! COME BACK! I’LL GIVE YOU MONEY TO STICK
AROUND! ISN’T THAT– ISN’T THAT HOW
CHARITY WORKS? ( LAUGHTER )
( CHEERS ) LOVE ME!”
MANDATORY CHARITY TRAINING, MANDATORY CHARITY TRAINING,
MANDATORY CHARITY TRAINING, HIS CHILDREN HAD TO GO TO
MANDATORY CHARITY TRAINING. WHAT KIND OF TEST DO YOU HAVE TO
TAKE AT THE END OF THAT COURSE? QUESTION 1: CHARITY IS:
A: VOLUNTARY GIVING; B: THE NAME OF THE LADY DAD SAYS
TO NEVER TELL MELANIA ABOUT. ( LAUGHTER )
NOW– I’M SORRY. DIJUST BREAK SOME NEWS TO YOU
ABOUT HIS FIDELITY? TRUMP DIDN’T GET TO CHOOSE WHICH
CHARITIES GOT HIS COURT-ORDERED DONATIONS, AND YOU CAN TELL,
BECAUSE ONE OF THEM IS THE UNITED NEGRO COLLEGE FUND. YES, GOOD FOR THEM. GIVE, GIVE, GIVE, AN EXCELLENT
CHARITY. AND WE HAVE A PHOTOCOPY OF
TRUMP’S CHECK TO THEM. WHAT’S ON THE MEMO LINE? ( AS TRUMP )
“DO I GET TO SAY IT NOW?”

  • Why does he only have to give $2 million his campaign got $2.8 million …he should pay back every penny plus interest and punitive damages for withholding the funds other people donated

  • In space, no one hears you scream…

    Sooo, if we all can drop him of in space.. that'll be great.

    Let's make it an earth try, the first thing where the entire world will come together for, just let this guys run come to an end

  • I will give Trump the benefit of the doubt on the whole Space Force thing. Nations taking conflict into orbit has been a long time concept. Long before he was even president.

  • We have the money for 'Space Force', but not enough money for our crumbling infrastructure, raise the minimum wage, universal medicare, pay teachers a living wage, forgive student debt, etc.

  • It's a waste of taxpayer money. Just like everything else is Administration makes up just to somehow siphon off the money to put into their pockets.

  • Help !!! I've woken up in a hellish alternate reality where a grifter has taken over the White House and all the guys who impeached Clinton for a blow job are blowing HIM !!!! Help me !!!!!!!!!!!&$!!!;:!'

  • WHAAAAT? You don't have paid parental leave. The more and more I hear about your country, the more I realize how far behind the rest of the world you are. I'm so sad for my friends who can't even see a doctor over there. Praying you catch up to the rest of us. Happy holidays from the richest country in the world – Australia.

  • Face it the [slush] fund has probably allowed him to evade many times more than that in taxes. This is probably why he wants nobody to see his tax returns. The people who voted for him are all fools.

  • No offense to all the Maga hat-wearing Trump for life even if he violates the Constitution so what people out there but this dude is out of his effing mind

  • If he's a billionaire why does he have to keep stealing money? That's why he doesn't want to hand over his tax documents because he would be exposing the truth to his group of worshipers that if anything he's a billion dollars in debt.

  • Ah yes justice for the rich, we'd all be in jail forever for that. Glad trump fixed all that for us right? *contains sarcasm

  • Trump had a rough week? Wow… that's fake news for sure. How much are the dems paying you to produce fake news? Should be plenty enough for you to give more to charity than he did if your so damn worried about it you damn sellout ? that's the only funny part of your show is watching you embarrass yourself.

  • I never thought it could happen here, but Trump shows it can. The GOP should be disbanded. Trump is what he is, completely incapable of reasoning. It’s the GOP that keeps him from, rightfully, being dismissed for incompetence. The man is truly a moron.

  • You can't make this insanity up.
    Dotard Chump and his despicable enablers… should make for a sickening dark comedy some day.

  • His impeachment is going to get blocked in the Senate. And he will win the 2020 election. You can see how this is going to play out already.

    This is only year 3 of 8.

  • I can imagine that this spaceforce thing will be the only good thing he has done. Getting the waste out of the stratosphere.. Space Janitors yay sign me up

  • i hate to say it.. but would colbert ever criticize Hillery ?
    I am no fan of Trump and I really enjoy this show.
    I just want to see justice all around the spe trum

  • Judge orders Trump to pay $2 Million Dollars in damages to 8 separate charities, for misusing money, in other words, stealing money from the Trump foundation, which BTW was his own charity, that he never made a donation to. Basically, he was stealing money that people had donated to his own charity.
    Trump: Big deal, So What. I didn't know the money was coming from my charity. There's no problem. $2M dollars is nothing. Calls Mar a Lago: Hey, cut a check for $2 Million Dollars and send to that cock sucking, mother fucking, judge in New York. Fuckem! That dumb fuck. He's as dumb as the taxpayers. Neither, have a clue, that I've stolen over $100 Million Dollars from the taxpayers, to keep my failing golf courses/resort's from going bankrupt. It's the easiest money I've ever stolen in my life and I'm not done. I'm gonna keep stealing their fucking money. They'll never figure out what happened to their money, they're too dumb.
    Hahaha ah hahaha. I'm just too good. Hell yeah I'm coming, I'm on my way now. Alright, I'll See you tomorrow.

  • So this "new branch of the armed forces" will consist of a room or two in some obscure USAF building on some USAF base staffed by a few Earthbound USAF space nerds.
    Just how much is this Space Farce setting back the taxpayers, I wonder?

  • The US looks like a paradise for embezzler and thieves. If the law is applied differently to the President and his family than they are above the law.

  • Yayyyy space force!!! what? sure yeah we still let 15 year olds die cause they can't afford surgery but, … SPACE FORCE!!!! WWOOOOO!

  • Hey you corporate assclown! When are you going to get on your knees and beg America for forgiveness for lying about Trump for the past 2.5 years? We do not forget or forgive traitors…

  • Colbert is such a twat that he has to play act as if he is "stupid Trump," just to help feed the imbeciles who watch Colbert.

  • So he took almost $3M from a fund raiser for the vets…but is being ordered to give only $2M to 8 other charities instead of being ordered to give back the almost $3M to the VETS that he STOLE FROM!? I'm sure the 8 charities can use the money, but COME ON! He stole from the VETERANS! They are already horribly underfunded in the US, and the court is giving the mandated $2M Trump has to pay back to 8 other charities instead??

  • It's funny/odd how the person who actually did the stealing Isn't been made to take that course but his kids Are ! If this was done as a preventive messure then they're Way too Late with that. His kids have already been corrupted beyond Redemption.

  • When you love something you will hold on that it belongs to you and it must not change. But the truth is Everything must change and die. So if you love something You must learn to let it go. All animals are suffering because don't know Four Noble Truths.
    Lord Buddha taught the Four Noble Truths for help you to be free from suffering and stop reborn again.

  • The Trumps (and the administration) are like a cartoon villain family, just doing everything they possibly can to be evil. I keep expecting every superhero from Batman to Captain Planet to appear to take them out…

  • What a colossal waste of money for a "Space Force". Criminy shit, he gave tax cuts to the rich and now this. Golfing too. What a selfish asshole.

  • well…she-it, I wish he would've paid off my student loan. I'm 62 and will never be able to pay it off…and it will affect how I survive in the future.. Presently, I live just under the poverty level.. I wish HE had to live like this…maybe he would melt down the sewer

  • Unrelated, but The newest update on mobile YouTube app sucks. Touching the screen causes an overlay that doesn't go away on its own unless you push an X button in the corner. Even then, once accidental screen touch and it comes back.

  • Space Force, because Trump can do anything he wants (thanks, McConnell and friends) and is determined to play little boy fantasy games with our money, our country!

  • Court ordered a $2M settlement. Why is no one outraged about the rest of the money he stole from these for his own use?

  • I used to admire Colbert but he’s kinda just a hack now whose whole career revolves around making fun of trump with a bad impression. Shame to see such comedic talent go to waste.

  • So Trump steals from children and veterans and somehow still protests he did nothing wrong? Oh, and no jail time? Impeach the orange imbecile, throw his pathetic tangerine ass in prison and hold the republicans to account for their heinous actions in supporting this idiot!

  • Until you seriously get rid of Big Donor/Big Lobby money from elections, loophole law$ benefitting only Congressman – illegal or unavailable for the rest of us that aren't oligarch$ servicing plutocrat$ – add proper regular audits for legislator$, all pertinent law$ will CONTINUE to be written or diminished BY the $uper Rich FOR the $uper Rich. Period. Unless you got money, fixer$ and lawyer$ to negotiate a deal to stay OUT of jail, you go to prison for the same crime$.

    The Teflon Don ha$ been too rich and well advised to ever really risk prison, so far, as MANY CROOK$ do unless they burn someone as big or bigger than they. Cosby, Maddoff, Weinstein, Epestein etc. showed how long even the less well advised or smaller crook$ can get away with stuff for DECADE$, as the $413 Million Tax Fraud Trump Inc Mafia Family has. Scamerica is alive & well with Dirty Don'$ "MAGA" promise to "clean up the loophole$" he unfairly benefitted from, to his OWN 2016 campaign admission. But that was just another deceipt of a well documented $erial liar. This ain't rocket $cience, "boy$ and girl$". But the truth is few REALLY care.

    POTU$ has taken advantage of these criminal laws written for people like him his whole life. He JU$T ain't like the genuinely dumb, financially unsophisticated, uninformed, low critical thinking, well propagandized suckers he dumbfound$ at rallies. And in former "walkaway partnership$" he pocketed the management fee$ and dumped his debts from his bankruptcie$, but still kept the write-off$. A $cam he's pulled off with his fixer$ 6 time$ at least. Even this $imple $tuff is WAY ahead of regulators of corruptly writen law$. It's one of a myriad of way$ how genuine moron$ like Trump can keep FAILING UPWARD and half convince himself he's a "genius". But he sure can sucker the dummies, the willfully ignorant and $educe the CORRUPT. Roy Cohn, Daddy Fred Trump and other$ showed Donald Jessica Trump the rope$ – alway$ play the victim when you plan a heist.

  • Is it still a Tax Deduction? Or fraud
    ? The continued Corruption of
    Trump world is a stain on our
    Country. Eyes Open America? Mine
    are and I am moved to contribute
    to opposing All GOP candidates that have stood with Trump and
    Party above the Constitution. All
    Corruption in politics must stop.

  • The only surprise and shocking is Trump doing something or anything legally. First off ,it take con man to know a con man. I know Trump is a con man. 2nd I ain’t the president of the USA,therefore I don’t have standard to hold up too. Trump is not competent enough to do any job, I meant ANY job,let alone the President. Trump is incompetent con man. If I he was to work for or with me,I would make him disappeared. He will sell people out,he will back stab you, a cheater and a liar.

  • Slap on the wrist and a fine? What if an individual stole from a charity tin?
    Imagine if Clinton or Obama was on the other table. The Rep. party would have a field day tearing their hair out "lynch lynch etc"

  • So in return for paid maternal leave, they gave Trump something that already existed, and just called it something different because he's too stupid to tell the difference.

  • The funny part is that the earth is flat and no one can go to space…so trump along with all Americans are totally stupid…trump is not the only dumb person here

  • Trump stole 100 million dollars from his charity, and was forced to pay 2 million in settlements.
    I would pay 2 million dollars for a 98 million dollar return any day.

  • REPUBLICANS! Do you know today trump and his lovely children?were ordered to pay 2 million in damages to 8 charities ???NO? i dont think so?crooks, the whole lot of you, DISGUSTING , low life REPS!????

  • A blimp named the Hindenburg, a car named Edsel, a president named Donald trump…
    SpaceForce is literally what a 10yr old calls his toy X wing. You dont get to make fun of the green new deal for its name anymore.

    Also- Trump sucks at branding things.
