Stephen Colbert isn't pleased with the wall of Republicans who are against accepting Syrian refugees into the United States and the recent passing of a bill that calls for stricter vetting of refugees from Iraq and Syria.
The "Late Show" host said it was the only thing he wanted to talk about post-Paris attacks.
"The question to let Syrian refugees into this country has become the new political issue, completely overshadowing the old political issue: whether to let Mexicans into this country," he said.
He brought up the lunacy of Donald Trump's joke that Syrian refugees would be very angry about going from their 130-degree heat to Minnesota's 30-degree cold. "These people are going to be very, very unhappy," the real-estate mogul said.
To which Colbert responded, "Yeah, it's a tough call for the refugees. Do I want to stay in a war zone where my family faces almost certain death? Or do I want to go somewhere where I have to put a jacket on before going to the mall?"
He then referred to President Barack Obama's statements in Manila in which he said that the Republicans who oppose the refugees seem afraid of widows and young kids. "First they were worried about the press being too tough on them during debates, now they're worried about three-year-old orphans," Obama said.
Then, Colbert joked, "Why shouldn't we be afraid of three-year-olds? You think we can't negotiate with terrorists? Try negotiating with a three-year-old. They play hardball."
The plot thickens for Colbert after Ted Cruz and Jeb Bush suggested that Christian refugees don't pose any danger. Later, Bush would have a hard time explaining what keeps Muslims from lying that they're Christians. "I think you can prove it," he said without further explanation.
Colbert finished his point by quoting the Bible, particularly the line, "I was a stranger and you welcomed me in." "If they don't say 'welcome me in,' they are either a terrorist, or they are running for president," he said.
