COULD YOU ADD A PHOTO OF COMEDIAN STEPHEN COLBERT?
President Donald J. Trump announced Monday that comedian Stephen Colbert will run the administration’s newly created Department of Irony.
Trump praised Colbert’s qualifications by tweeting: “Stephen is an ironic guy. Very ironic. I should know. Nobody knows more about irony than I do.”
During the presidential campaign, Trump frequently promised supporters he would make the country “ironic again.”
“We’re going to be so ironic, you’re going to get sick and tired of irony,” he often told cheering crowds.
Trump said last week that he asked Congress to approve the Department of Irony as a cabinet-level department to direct and oversee all irony in the administration.
Colbert, a comedian and a writer, has hosted The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on CBS since September 8, 2015. Before that, he hosted The Colbert Report on the Comedy Channel, a news-parody program in which he played a caricature of a conservative political pundit.
