Comedian Stephen Colbert is blaming US President Donald Trump for his weight gain.
“I think I’ve gained 15 pounds since Donald Trump became president,” he told InStyle in an interview. It did sounds like one of his classic jokes, but he is, in fact, very serious. “I drank a lot of bourbon onscreen. We didn’t know what to do.”
The Late Show host graced the cover of this month’s edition of the magazine and opens up about everything from performing in his earlier days to the top secret trip he and his team took to Russia.
While talking about writing for the show, he mentions that sometimes the “dumb” jokes are the best jokes. “It’s a compliment,” he insists. “It takes a lot of mental provender to come up with something truly dumb, which is why I think Donald Trump must be a genius.”
Colbert recently returned from a secret trip his team took to St. Petersburg to film episodes of The Late Show—something that he had previously been against. “There’s enough pressure with these jobs,” he confesses. “I kind of like doing theater, doing my monologue, talking with guests, going home, having an old-fashioned, eating some cashews and watching Anderson Cooper with my wife.”
