#EndorseThis: Colbert Calmly Predicts, "We're All Gonna Die"

"They count on me to be a straight shooter with a calm voice".

Colbert then broke down all the developments leading up to Trump's threat, including reports that North Korea was making missile-ready nuclear weapons.

"As you can see, the vacation is really relaxing him", Kimmel said in reference to North Korea during his monologue.

"But don't worry, the story gets worse", he continued. "In the case of North Korea, God has given Trump authority to take out Kim Jong Un".

Colbert went on to discuss his frustration with North Korea, which specifically threatened the USA despite the fact 14 other United Nations countries also voted to sanction North Korea.

Just kidding. Donald Trump met the dictator's warning word for word - threatening the Asian country with "fire, fury and (frankly) power". The United States, we sanction a lot of other countries.

"We sanction a lot of other countries countries - we sanctioned Russian Federation just last week and it felt pretty great", he finished. "Listen, we're sorry we made fun of you. You should see the size of their missiles".

Luckily, he said, President Donald Trump stepped up in a pure moment of statesmanship to de-escalate Kim Jong-un's rhetoric.

Jeffress said that he was prompted to make the statement after Trump said that if North Korea's threats to the U.S. continue, Pyongyang will be "met with fire and fury like the world has never seen".

"Today, President Trump warned that if North Korea does not stop escalating its nuclear program, quote, 'They'll be be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen, '" he said.

"Shut up!" Colbert said. "Go back to golfing before you kill all of us". You know Kim Jong-un is insane, right? And also that one time he got pulled over. "And I just started "The Handmaid's Tale"," Colbert asked Trump. "While only 24% of Americans trust what they hear from the White House, Trump's approval rating in the same poll is 38%". "We're all gonna die". Well, don't just stand there, tweet something! New information about North Korea's advancements in its nuclear program and news that Pyongyang is considering an attack on a USA military base in Guam led to President Trump's comments that continued threats from North Korea would be met with "fire and fury like the world has never seen". "That outta cool things down", Meyers joked.

Megachurch pastor Robert Jeffress, a prominent supporter of President Donald Trump, said in a statement that "God has given Trump the authority to take out Kim Jong-Un".
