Late-night host Stephen Colbert on Wednesday interviewed “God” about whether President Trump has a moral authority to “take out” North Korean leader Kim Jung Un.

"The Late Show" mocked a comment by Trump’s religious adviser claiming God has given him permission to attack the North Korean leader, showing Colbert talking to a white-haired figure who appeared on the ceiling of the production room.

“Oh yeah, I’m always on America’s side when it comes to blowing stuff up,” the God character said.

Colbert pushed back on the statement, saying, “But that goes against your whole message of peace and forgiveness.”

“I never said that. That was my hippie son,” God responded. “One semester at liberal arts college and all of a sudden it’s ‘Love they neighbor’ and 'Quinoa is a super grain.’”

When Colbert brought up innocent lives that would be lost in a nuclear war, God brushed off the worries: "Ah, humans had a good run."

Pastor Robert Jeffress, Trump’s religious adviser, on Wednesday told The Washington Post that God has given Trump religious authority to “take out” the nation’s leader.

“When it comes to how we should deal with evildoers, the Bible, in the book of Romans, is very clear: God has endowed rulers full power to use whatever means necessary — including war — to stop evil,” Jeffress said in a statement.

“In the case of North Korea, God has given Trump authority to take out Kim Jong Un,” he said.

Tensions have escalated between North Korea and the U.S. after reports that North Korea has developed a missile-ready nuclear weapon. Trump responded Tuesday with a statement threatening "fire and fury" against the nation. North Korea announced Wednesday that its military is planning to attack Guam this month.
