Stephen Colbert destroys Trump's weird response to the US climate change report

Out of all the political commentators in the United States, Stephen Colbert has a unique way of lambasting Trump on his various downfalls.

The 54-year-old comedian regularly dissects whatever mishap the president has gone through this week with ruthless precision.

His most recent tirade against Trump comes from his reaction to the US climate change report, which concluded that these overwhelming changes to the climate are likely to cost the US hundreds of billions of dollars and that the spread of disease might be rampant.

Trump, who admitted to reading the report said it was "fine", which didn't sit too well with Colbert, who admonished the POTUS for his ignorance.

Fine? If I had to describe this report in one word it would not be 'fine'.

It would be a different world that begins with F as in if you don't believe in climate change at this point you are 'fine' in the head.

Colbert then recited an actual quote that Trump gave to The Washington Post, which read more like the ramblings of a madman who didn't know what he was talking about.

One of the problems that a lot of people like myself - we have very high levels of intelligence, but we're not necessarily such believers.

If you back and if you look at articles, they talked about global freezing, they talked about at some point the planets could have freeze to death.

You look at our air and our water, and it's right now at a record clean. But when you look at China and you look at parts of Asia and when you look at South America, and when you look at many other places in this world, including Russia, including - just many others places - the air is incredibly dirty.

And when you're talking about an atmosphere, oceans are very small. And it blows over and it sails over. 

Colbert's response to this was perfect.

Everything he believes is from old magazine articles.

It doesn't work that way, sir! 

Nick Nolte was sexiest man alive in 1992, but since then, he too, has been ravaged by coastal erosion.

The science is in.

I have heard better explanations of the weather from toddlers on benadryl.
