Stephen Colbert Claims Pastor Robert Jeffress' Comments to 'Take Out' North Korea Goes Against God's Teaching

Late-night host Stephen Colbert performed a spoof on his show Wednesday night where he asked "god" about whether President Donald Trump has the biblical right to "take out" North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as Pastor Robert Jeffress suggested.

Trump's religious adviser, Jeffress, told The Washington Post on Wednesday that God has granted Trump religious authority to "take out" the North Korean dictator.

"The Late Show" host, troubled by the remarks, asked his white-haired mock "god" (who appeared on the ceiling of the production room) what his thoughts were on Jeffress' comments.

"Oh yeah, I'm always on America's side when it comes to blowing stuff up," the "god" character said.

"But that goes against your whole message of peace and forgiveness," Colbert snapped back. He was then told that way of thinking was from his "hippy" son Jesus.

Colbert, who's Catholic, brought up the fact that innocent lives could be lost if there was a nuclear war, to which his sarcastic "god" responded: "Ah, humans had a good run."
