A Teenage Rapper Just Called Out Donald Trump on the Set of Stephen Colbert’s Show.

“I want to thank you not only for being here but for running for president,” Colbert told the GOP front-runner Tuesday night. “I’m not going to say this stuff writes itself, but you certainly do deliver it on time every day.” Colbert’s gratitude for Trump’s comic assistance was well-placed. Donald Trump was on his best behavior on CBS’ “Late Show” Tuesday, but he was his usual brash self earlier when he promised legal action against a group attacking him in Iowa TV spots.Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump told “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert on Tuesday that he was through talking about the birthplace of President Barack Obama. “I don’t talk about it anymore.Donald Trump defended his plan to build a border wall and even weighed in on the “pizza rat,” but he wasn’t interested in discussing whether he believed President Obama was a natural-born U.S. citizen during an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Tuesday night.Not many young musicians would choose to use their first national television performance to call out the frontrunner for the Republican presidential nomination.

Peppering Trump with questions and wisecracks during his appearance, the CBS host reduced the usually domineering Trump to straight-man status, an unaccustomed role Trump performed with rare grace. Colbert cracked a few mild jokes at Trump’s expense, but he mostly handled the Republican frontrunner with the same respectful enthusiasm that competing late-night host Jimmy Fallon used when he had Trump on as a guest a couple weeks ago. Earlier Tuesday, Trump threatened to sue a conservative political action committee that’s been running ads maligning the GOP presidential front-runner’s stance on taxing the rich and his alleged liberal past — but the group says it won’t back down. Trump has been widely criticized for failing to condemn the man’s remarks. “This is the first time in my life that I have caused controversy by NOT saying something,” Trump tweeted after the incident. Minutes before he was set to perform in front of the live studio audience, Raury quietly changed into a bright green Mexico soccer jersey with the name Trump emblazoned on the back.

And focusing on Trump’s insistence that Mexico would pay for the wall, Colbert drew him into a role-playing exercise — a phone call where “you’re you, and I’m the president of Mexico.” “The Republican Party has been a big pusher of the idea that money is speech, and you’re a $10 billion mouth,” said Colbert. “You’re their worst nightmare.” Trump repeated his contention, as a former heavy campaign donor, that candidates who accept major contributions are typically “owned” by those donors once in office. “You gave them a big contribution and you want something and all of a sudden they’ve very receptive,” he said. The real estate mogul, who has risen among the ranks of Republicans by bashing everyone from his primary opponents to President Obama, apparently doesn’t like it when others bad-mouth The Donald. Barack Obama, born in the United States?” Trump in 2011 spread the false assertion that Obama was born outside the U.S., and last week sparked controversy when he didn’t correct an audience member at a rally who falsely claimed Obama is Muslim. If you didn’t make a healthy gift, “believe me, you get the cold shoulder.” Colbert asked if Trump really wants to be president: “If you actually got the gig, would that be a step down for you?

In a strongly worded cease-and-desist letter, Trump’s campaign accused the conservative super PAC Club for Growth of defamation and libel for two TV ads running in the early primary state.-Mexican border that has become the cornerstone of his campaign, and he echoed comments he’s made frequently on the campaign trail. “We have to have a wall. Trump’s comments about building a massive wall along the US-Mexico border to keep immigrants out “just feed into this negativity,” Raury said, adding, “I’m all about love.” Trump did not get a chance to respond to Raury’s message. Sensing after a few minutes that he wasn’t in for the kind of piercingly intelligent satire that Colbert levelled at president George W Bush at the 2006 White House correspondents dinner, Trump relaxed, riffed on the size of the national debt and signed a copy of his book, the Art of the Deal, for energy secretary Ernest Moniz, who was the following guest. Whatever the public reaction to Raury’s statement when the broadcast is aired Tuesday night, the audience at the Ed Sullivan Theater was unambiguous in its support.

Toward the end of their segment, Colbert referenced the character he’d depicted on his previous show, The Colbert Report, and showed a series of provocative quotes, asking whether it was his character or Trump who said them. I talk about veterans.” “That meatball is now being dragged down the steps of the subway by a rat,” said Colbert, referring to an earlier joke in the show about video captured in the New York City subway of a rat dragging a slice of pizza.
