Colbert on Possible Trump Appearance on 'The Late Show': 'For Safety's Sake, It Wouldn't be a Good Idea'

During Wednesday's edition of Anderson Cooper 360, the eponymous host aired an excerpt of his lengthy interview with Stephen Colbert, host of The Late Show. The excerpt closed with Cooper asking Colbert "would you want to have Trump on your show again?" Colbert responded: "the quick answer would be no because...it would be hard for me to be properly respectful of the office because I think that he is so disrespectful of the office that it's very hard to perceive him as I would want to perceive a President in terms of their status and the dignity and their representation of the United States. So I think, just for safety's sake, it wouldn't be a good idea."  In other words, Colbert might be so triggered by President Trump's presence on his show that he might lose his cool and physically harm the President.
