Stephen Colbert Pokes Fun At Kanye West’s Twitter Feed On The Late Show

The comedian shares his thoughts on the Donda chart.

February 17, 2016

Kanye West's Twitter fingers were the subject of a monologue from Stephen Colbert last night. Earlier this week, the rapper suggested that he was $53 million in debt and publicly asked for help from Mark Zuckerberg. Colbert joked, "I can't think of a better way to reach out to the founder of Facebook than the one place he's sure to look: Twitter."

Colbert mostly focused on Kanye's "Donda chart," which he called "as ambitious as it is vague." "It's like an eight year-old imagining their dream tree house," Colbert added. "Just think about the things Kanye couldn't fit: invisible unicycles, sharks that play basketball; he gave us a clue on Twitter when he said, 'I'ma fix wolves.' This might be about his new song 'Wolves," but we can't rule out that he's actually going to upgrade wolves."

"Billionaires, it's time to do what's right for the little guy," Colbert continued. "After all, as Kanye actually tweeted, 'you'd rather open up one school in Africa like you really helped the country... if you want to help, help me.' So let's stop selfishly helping the country of Africa and start helping Kanye West. If you don't, you're not gonna get one of those cool new wolves."
