Stephen Colbert Rips Donald Trump: 'A Man With an Orange Face and Cotton Candy Hair' Shouldn't Call Jeff Bezos a Bozo

Clowning around on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, the host got in some colorful digs after President Donald Trump insulted Jeff Bezos.

In a matter not befitting a sitting president, Trump referred to Bezos as "Jeff Bozo" in his latest Twitter rant to poke fun at the world's richest man and the National Enquirer's coverage of his pending divorce, as Mediaite and other outlets reported.

Trump tweeted on January 13: "So sorry to hear about Jeff Bozo being taken down by a competitor whose reporting, I understand, is far more accurate than the reporting in his lobbyist newspaper, the Amazon Washington Post. Hopefully, the paper will soon be placed in better & more responsible hands!"

Referring to the tabloid Enquirer's coverage of Bezos' lovesick tweets to his girlfriend, Trump taunted the Amazon billionaire who bought The Washington Post in 2013.

The irony did not escape Colbert and his timely, wicked wit on Monday:

"A man with an orange face and cotton candy hair is comparing someone else to a clown," Colbert wisecracked. "You know the old saying: those who live in glass houses shouldn't throw giant shoes."

Colbert also took issue with Trump's assertion that the gossipy National Enquirer delivers better reporting than the famed Washington Post.

"The National Enquirer is not a competitor to The Washington Post," added Colbert, followed by audience guffaws. "The Washington Post broke Watergate. The National Enquirer broke the Cher sex cult scandal. Oh yeah, oh, no, it's true. She once convinced a whole group of sailors that she could turn back time."

Reportedly, the National Enquirer published Bezos' questionable, seemingly very personable tweets Colbert referred to as "a series of lascivious texts by Bezos and his girlfriend," which prompted Trump's taunt.

But Bezos wasn't immune from Colbert's jokes, as the late night talk show host called Bezos "'Amazon founder and mediation instructor who says, 'Erections are perfectly natural Jeff Bezos.'" Those back-and-forth texts reportedly set off Trump.

Continued Colbert in his mocking tone:

"The Enquirer turned the sleaze dial all the way up to 11 to publish Bezos' sexual text messages – 'or sexxages' – including this one:

'I love you alive girl. I will show you with my body, my lips and my eyes very soon.'

Added Colbert, in commentary to the hoots of his audience:

"And I will vomit with my mouth and my lips … immediately."

As a side note, Bezos' soon-to-be ex-wife, MacKenzie, could reportedly glean $69 billion in alimony.

MacKenzie Bezos could potentially control eight percent of Amazon's stock, according to Forbes, which lists Bezos' wealth at $137 billion. Bezos owns 16 percent of Amazon shares, so MacKenzie Bezos could receive half in the divorce settlement.

The couple co-announced on January 9 via Twitter that they are amicably divorcing, according to several media reports, including CNBC. They have four children.

"We want to make people aware of a development in our lives," reads the Bezos tweet. "As our family and close friends know, after a long period of loving exploration and trial separation, we have decided to divorce and continue our shared lives as friends.

"We feel incredibly lucky to have found each other and deeply grateful for every one of the years we have been married to each other. If we had known we would separate after 25 years, we would do it all again. We've had such a great life together as a married couple, and we also see wonderful futures ahead, as parents, friends, partners in ventures and projects, and as individuals pursuing ventures and adventures. Though the labels might be different, we remain a family, and we remain cherished friends."
