America's "foremost Catholic" comments on Trump vs. Pope

From the Daily Beast.

Who could be better than Stephen Colbert to tackle the day’s unexpected “celebrity feud” between Donald Trump and the Pope.

As “America’s foremost Catholic,” the Late Show host dedicated his entire monologue Thursday night to the bizarre war of words that erupted when Pope Francis declared that Donald Trump is “not Christian.” As Colbert told it, the Pope found Trump’s rhetoric about building walls—as opposed to bridges—antithetical to Christian principles.

... In an attempt to “broker peace” between the two men, Colbert asked, “Is it possible that you guys are fighting because you have so much in common?”

“After all, you both think you're infallible,” he continued. “You both sit on golden thrones and you both wear very silly things on your heads.”

Watch the video clip for the Pope's exact words and Trump's response.
