Watch Stephen Colbert tear apart Donald Trump’s violently aggressive UN speech, bit by bit

The takedown also features a hilarious Elton John style insult-off between Trump and Kim Jong-un.


After travelling to host the 69th Emmy Awards, The Late Show host Stephen Colbert (above) came back to the studio with a bang. “Speaking of travelling, Donald Trump is on a trip to a very hostile region – New York City,” Colbert begins. “And this morning, he gave his first official address at – I want to say Starfleet Academy?”

He was referring to Trump’s debut at the United Nations, where he delivered several harsh statements about North Korea, among other things.

Colbert reminded the audience that Trump was never a fan of the inter-governmental peace broker. In 2012, the US President had even tweeted about “the cheap 12 inch square tile behind the speaker at UN” that always bothered him and even offered to replace them, if the UN ever asked him.

“They’re not going to ask you,” Colbert declared. “They’re going to ask you to send soldiers to New Uganda, not sconces to the lobby.”

The highlight of Trump’s address, according to Colbert, was threatening an organisation that was founded with the hope of creating lasting peace. “The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea,” Trump said. Colbert was particularly amused by Trump’s new nickname for North Korea’s Supreme Leader Kim Jong-Un: “Rocket Man”. “Mr President, please don’t give our enemies nicknames that make them sound cooler,” he pleaded, with obvious mockery.

Colbert didn’t stop there. The Late Show also presented an imagined “Elton John insult-off” between Trump and Kim Jong-Un. Jong-Un unveiled his new “album” Goodbye Yellow Haired Toad, where the Supreme Leader “reimagines the hits of Elton John to mock Trump”.

Reclining on a bed of satin, the glass-encased phone blends into the folds of the luxurious fabric.

The slimness, seamlessness and solidity of the phone make for a great profile shot.

A stunning design which is IP68 rated water-resistant too, it is as beautiful as it is strong.

We partnered with photographer Gaurav Sawn to create this series. Says Gaurav, “The glass sandwich design looks extremely good and the reflections on the back panel make the phone stand out. This is a phone that is best used without a case. The curved corners were also very comfortable to hold. All in all, really enjoyed shooting this phone!”

While this phone is elegant and crafted to perfection, it is also extremely tough, being protected from scratches with Corning® Gorilla® Glass that stretches all the way around.

You don’t need to sacrifice of performance either. It’s packed with a 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 processor and comes with a TurboPower™ Charger which means hours of power in minutes!

For the music lover, this phone is a boon. With simultaneous connectivity of up to four Bluetooth® audio devices at the same time, you can build your own stereo system without worrying about cables.

The dual rear cameras – a 12MP that lets you focus faster and get great results even on dark, cloudy days, and an 8 MP camera, with wide angle lens makes your most ambitious photos look all the more impressive.
