On Friday’s broadcast of “The Late Show,” the comedian sarcastically told the pariah state to “knock if off” with the “sick burns” against the U.S. commander-in-chief. In recent days, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has called Trump a “dotard,” and its foreign minister likened him to a “barking dog.”

Colbert then revealed some of the insults that he is allowed to hurl at Trump, but which would definitely be off limits for the North Korean regime.
