Donald Trump addressed congress in his first State of the Union this week - many observed that he chose a notably much more sober tone in the wake of his dark and stormy inauguration address.

With great pleasure, comedian and host of The Late Show Stephen Colbert dissected said speech.

Donald Trump was keen to talk about how to make America great again, with a new catchphrase.

Colbert was unimpressed.

'Renewal of the American spirit' - sounds like a Chinese bootleg of make America great again

He touched on a few aspects of Trump's speech, but it was his Kellyanne Conway burn that struck gold:

Colbert:

She did however pop-up a few days later on TV with a confusing new nickname for the President.

Oh dear.
