Colbert: Trump Is My Old Character With A ‘$10 Billion Dollar Mouth’

Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Stephen Colbert said Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is his over-the-top conservative character from Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report” with a “$10 billion dollar mouth.”

Colbert said, “I’m a big fan of facts. I’m not sure they have any bearing on what person’s popularity is. Donald Trump is like — I’m not the first person to say this but I completely agree that he’s my old character with $10 billion. He’s completely playing on emotional level so beautifully. It’s one of the reasons why he just do that because he’s doing that character better than I ever could. He’s willing to drink his own Kool-Aid and manufacture and distribute it because he has all the cash. He’s this very interesting, like Frankenstein of the idea that facts don’t matter only money does. Because if money is speech, He’s got a $10 billion dollar mouth. And it doesn’t have to spend any of it because everyone will point a camera a at him.”
