The Late Show With Stephen Colbert has published a video segment in which Colbert interviews a cartoon version of Donald Trump. The fun starts at the 5:07 mark if you want to skip the overview of the past week in Trump-related shenanigans, antics, controversies and assorted insults. Cartoon Trump argues like a five year old (something Anderson Cooper's CNN accused the real Trump of recently), using the tried and true debate tactics of kids that age: x started it, you're x yourself, I know you are but what am I, infinity plus one... At the end he even breaks out into song.
