Stephen Colbert is all about one thing these days: ripping into President Trump.

At the start of Wednesday’s “The Late Show,” CBS host Stephen Colbert ripped into the tweeted announcement President Trump made that morning stating that he intends to ban transgender people from serving in the military.

“I began my day today as I often begin my days by checking Donald Trump’s Twitter feed to see how far the crazy has spread,” Colbert said. “Today, I really think he’s off his meds because today he went from crazy to cruel.”

Colbert went on to joke about the fact that there was a 10-minute pause after Trump’s initial tweet, which read, “After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow …”

“What?! What won’t you allow?!” Colbert asked. “Socks with sandals? Dancing in public? Please tell me it’s not alcohol, I needs my drink. I gotta have it. What could it be, what could it, it took him 10 minutes to tell us what it was!”

Colbert then went on to read Trump’s full announcement, including the part about how the military “cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail,” which ended with the words “thank you.”

“Thank you?” Colbert said, clearly shocked. “F— you!” The audience responded with thunderous applause to his expletive-laced reaction.

Colbert has been ruthless in all things Trump this summer. He attacked Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) and Attorney General Jeff Sessions earlier in July, calling the former an “anti-LGBT hate group.”

Watch the clip of Colbert’s rant below:

Stephen Tyrone Colbert (born May 13, 1964) is an American comedian, television host, and author. Colbert has hosted The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, a late-night television talk show on CBS which is known for deadpan comedy, since September 8, 2015.

Colbert originally studied to be a dramatic actor, but became interested in improvisational theatre while attending Northwestern University, where he met Second City director Del Close. Colbert first performed professionally as an understudy for Steve Carell at Second City Chicago, where his troupe mates included Paul Dinello and Amy Sedaris, comedians with whom he developed the sketch comedy series, Exit 57. He wrote and performed on the short-lived Dana Carvey Show before collaborating with Sedaris and Dinello again on the cult television series Strangers with Candy. He gained considerable attention for his role on the latter as closeted gay history teacher Chuck Noblet. His work as a correspondent on Comedy Central’s news-parody series The Daily Show gained him wide recognition.

In 2005, he left The Daily Show to host a spin-off series, The Colbert Report. Following The Daily Show’s news-parody concept, The Colbert Report was a parody of personality-driven political opinion shows including The O’Reilly Factor, in which he portrayed a caricatured version of conservative political pundits. The series became one of Comedy Central’s highest-rated series, earning Colbert an invitation to perform as featured entertainer at the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner in 2006.

Colbert has won nine Primetime Emmy Awards, two Grammy Awards, and two Peabody Awards. Colbert was named one of Time’s 100 Most Influential People in 2006 and 2012. His book, I Am America (And So Can You!), was #1 on The New York Times Best Seller list in 2007.
