Colbert Spends 5 Minutes Mocking Trump in Opening Emmys Monologue

‘Of course what really matters to Donald Trump is ratings’
By Grabien Staff

Living up to the billing as being an especially politically charged Emmys Awards, host Stephen Colbert opened his monologue with an almost 5 minute long attack on President Trump. 

Here's a rush excerpt from the opening monologue: 

COLBERT: "But he didn’t. Because unlike the presidency, Emmys go to the winner of the popular vote. Where do I find the courage to tell that joke in this room? Of course what really matters to Donald Trump is rating. You got to have the big numbers. And I certainly hope we achieved that tonight. Unfortunately at this point we have no way of knowing how big our audience is. I mean is there anyone who can say how big the audience is? Sean, do you know?" 
SPICER: "This will be the largest audience to witness an Emmy's, period. Both in person and around the world."
COLBERT: "Wow, that really soothes my fragile ego. I can understand why you would want one of these guys around. Melissa Mccarthy, everybody. Give it up! Beautiful."
