Stephen Colbert mocks Trump after finding out how many ads he's run during 'The Late Show'

Stephen Colbert was shocked Wednesday night to find out that the Trump campaign buys ads during The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. In fact, Trump has run nearly 1,200 ads during The Late Show, despite the fact that Colbert rarely, if ever, speaks kindly of the president. Colbert even asked, “Has he seen how I talk about him on this show?” But Trump does indeed advertise during The Late Show. A Trump ad attacking Joe Biden even aired in some markets Wednesday night, not long after Colbert used this opportunity to allude to the president’s alleged affair with porn star Stormy Daniels, saying, “Well I guess this isn’t the first time Trump’s paid someone to spank him.”
