In the wide-ranging interview, Stephen Colbert spoke about the election night special he hosted on Showtime and how he and his crew were taken by surprise by the President-Elect’s victory. He said, “As soon as I knew the outcome, I knew that I would have to throw out everything I had planned because we had four possible outcomes.” Detailing the scenarios, he said of the one not planned, “Then there was, ‘He’s gonna win and we know he’s gonna win.’ And that was the one that we prepared nothing for…on purpose.”

He said of the President-Elect, “Mr. Trump is such a large figure, that he will continue to be, I think, the story that we can tell with jokes on a daily basis because he keeps breaking rules or norms. He keeps on breaking norms.”

Elaborating he went on to say ” And the breaking of those norms is such a surprising thing that it’s, like, a firecracker every day. And you get to report on the sound of that firecracker every day.”

Asked what he thought the President-Elect should read before taking office, he said, “Well, the Constitution wouldn’t hurt because I’m not sure if he’s as familiar with it as, as, as one would hope, and it’s a pretty good read. Pretty good read. It’s well thought out.”

The interview was broadcast originally on Christmas Day, Sunday, December 25, 2016.
