Donald Trump’s first 100 days mark will be this coming Saturday, but what has he accomplished in his first 100 days in office?
Stephen Colbert, host of CBS’s “Late Show,” broke down Trump’s first 100 days in his opening monologue on Monday night.
“It’s a huge week for Donald Trump, because this Saturday he will reach 100 days in office. And, boy, it sure seems longer,” Colbert said on Monday’s episode.
Trump made a promise to all his voters about all the things he would accomplish once he hit this mark, but so far nothing he has promised has come true. Trump set a standard for himself, yet he called being graded on his first 100 days as president a “ridiculous standard.”
No matter how much I accomplish during the ridiculous standard of the first 100 days, & it has been a lot (including S.C.), media will kill!

“The first 100 days are traditionally a time to reflect on accomplishments of a president and Trump doesn’t have a lot of those,” Colbert said. “He still hasn’t filled his cabinet, he didn’t repeal Obamacare, there are still Muslims, but he did sign a law making it legal for mentally ill people to buy guns and for hibernating bears to be hunted. So he took care of his base: insane people who want to murder Yogi.”
Of course leave it to Trump to not take responsibility for anything. His failures include a lack of promised healthcare reform and blocks to his immigration ban.
Trump did set a record that hasn’t been seen since World War II, he signed nearly three dozen executive orders in under 100 days.
But, despite all of Trumps failure Colbert had to thank him for making “The Late Show” the most-watched show in late night. Because without Trump’s failures Colbert wouldn’t have been able to make him a central part of the comedy and criticism on “The Late Show.”
“I got to say Donald Trump has done a lot for me in the first 100 days,” he said. “Thank you for your service, Mr. President.”
