Stephen Colbert mocked President TrumpDonald John TrumpForget the spin: Five unrefuted Mueller Report revelations Lara Trump: Merkel admitting migrants 'one of the worst things that ever happened to Germany' Financial satisfaction hits record high: survey MORE as "President Spanky" on Tuesday. 

Colbert is referring to porn star Stormy Daniels's story that she spanked Trump with a copy of Forbes magazine, an account she detailed in an interview with "60 Minutes" on Sunday. 

Colbert showed a clip of Richard Ben-Veniste, a former Watergate special prosecutor, who alleged on CNN that the "Spanky" nickname is spreading around Washington.

“People are referring to him here in Washington by a new nickname,” Ben-Veniste said. “He’s famous for giving nicknames. He’s now known as ‘Spanky.’”


Colbert then cautioned that while the nickname is funny, people should show respect to Trump.

“It’s President Spanky,” he mocked.

Colbert also joked about a story published on Monday that Trump is privately telling people that Daniels’s allegations of an affair are a “hoax” because he’s not attracted to her.

“The president has a brilliant new defense. He’s telling people that Stormy Daniels isn’t his type,” Colbert said.

“She’s a buxom blonde. She couldn’t be more his type if she was a fish fillet wrapped in a 100 Ruble bill. And what kind of defense is that?”

Trump has denied the affair and several other accusations of sexual misconduct and adultery.
