“Late Show” host Stephen Colbert mocked Donald Trump Jr. late Friday following reports that he is considering a run for governor of New York, joking “we are screwed.”
“What’s the lovable scamp up to?” Colbert asked of Trump, 39. “Is he inventing a new hair-slicking technology? Or sitting on a tree stump, daydreaming about a new endangered species to shoot? Who knows.”
“No, according to Page Six, Donald Trump Jr. is considering a run for governor of New York,” Colbert said. “Look, that is absurd and will never happen — is what I would have said six months ago. Now, we are screwed.”
Colbert joked that Trump should consider the fact that his “dad lost here by 90 points.”
The eldest son of President Trump reportedly said earlier this week that he may be setting his sights on a future in politics, and could consider running for governor of New York.
Trump Jr. reportedly said returning to business became “boring” after joining his father on the presidential campaign trail.
