Trump’s ‘Nice’ Surprise at Rally Leaves Stephen Colbert and Fans Puzzled as They Mock Him


Former President Donald Trump reportedly tried something new and attempted to be nice during his rally in  Wisconsin. This unexpected shift in tone caught the attention of “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert, who on Wednesday night, June 19, humorously dissected the moment on his show.

Colbert opened his segment by noting the unusual nature of Trump’s demeanor. “He tried being nice,” Colbert remarked. “And of course, it got weird.” He then rolled footage of Trump making an oddly specific and somewhat rambling comment about the local scenery.

“I mean, what’s better, being with you right now ― look at that beautiful lake, that beautiful lake. Beautiful, right?” Trump said to the crowd. “What’s better: This, or sitting on the Pacific or the Atlantic, which has sharks? You don’t have sharks, see? That’s a big advantage. I’ll take the one without the sharks.”

Colbert, known for his sharp wit and quick humor, responded to the clip with a laugh. “Sure, that’s what everyone associates with Wisconsin: no sharks,” he quipped, highlighting the absurdity of Trump’s comparison. The segment then delved into Trump’s apparent aversion to sharks. This peculiar fear has been a topic of discussion in the past, notably brought to light by adult film star Stormy Daniels.

Daniels, who claims to have had an affair with Trump in 2006, has said that Trump was “terrified of sharks” and even expressed a desire for their extinction, stating, “I hope all the sharks die.” Trump himself confirmed his disdain for sharks in 2020, admitting that he would never donate to a cause dedicated to their preservation.

“I say, ‘No, thank you, I have other things I can contribute to,’” he said at a rally. The rally in Wisconsin was notable not only for Trump’s attempt at niceness but also for the bizarre nature of his remarks. While the crowd appeared to appreciate the effort, Colbert and his viewers were left puzzled by the former president’s comments.

This incident is yet another example of the unpredictable and often unconventional style that has come to define Trump’s public appearances. Whether this softer approach will become a regular feature of his rallies remains to be seen, but for now, it has provided ample fodder for comedians and commentators alike.

As Trump continues to make headlines with his unique approach to political discourse, it’s clear that his rallies will remain a source of entertainment and bewilderment for many. Colbert’s take on the Wisconsin rally is a testament to the enduring fascination and perplexity that Trump’s actions inspire.
