Stephen Colbert mocks Mitt Romney’s dinner with Trump: ‘It looks like he’s eating crow’

"The Late Show with Stephen Colbert"/CBS; YouTube

Stephen Colbert, like pretty much everyone else in America, recognizes that Mitt Romney's history of bashing Donald Trump during the election makes him a target of ridicule now that he's being considered for the secretary of state job.

The former Republican presidential candidate and ex-governor of Massachusetts has been meeting with Trump to discuss the potential appointment. Most recently, they had a highly publicized dinner at the upscale French restaurant Jean-Georgesin New York City this week.

"Mitt Romney at dinner with Trump?" Colbert asked incredulously. "No. I know Mitt is up for secretary of state, but I also know what Mitt said during the campaign."

The show then played a clip of Romney telling a crowd that Trump is a "phony, a fraud," and that Trump's promises "are as worthless as a degree from Trump University," among other insults.

Colbert then referred to the photo from the dinner of a smiling Trump and a grimacing Romney, which quickly became the butt of jokes on social media.

"I know he ordered frog, but it looks like he's eating crow," Colbert joked.
