Colbert played a clip of Trump saying, “Silence of the Lamb.” Has anyone ever seen it?”

Colbert said:

Oh, I love 'Silence of the Lamb'. It's one of my favorite movies, right up there with 'Star War', 'Dance with Wolf' and 'Jaw'.

Colbert played Trump and said:

“Silence of the Lambs”? The late, great Hannibal Lecter. He's a great man. He often had a friend over for dinner. But Hannibal Lecter, congratulations, the late, great Hannibal Lecter.

Colbert responded, “Late, great? In none of the stories does Hannibal Lecter die, and Sir Anthony Hopkins is still alive. Does Trump just think a character will die if he turns off the TV? “Well, another great episode of Wheel. Rest in peace. The late, great Pat Sajak. We will always remember how much you loved the alphabet. Congratulations. You are dead.”

Video:

Cobert is right. Trump has a weird obsession with the fictional Hannibal Lecter, and worse, but Trump generally misunderstands everything about the character. Trump seems to deeply identify with Lecter on some level, which in itself is deeply disturbing.

With all the problems happening in the country, Trump wasted his time talking inaccurately about a fictional movie character.

Trump is running to honor the memory of the late Hannibal Lecter, a fictional serial killer who was not the hero and never died.
