Stephen Colbert Mocks Donald Trump Jr.'s Meat-Peddling 'Grift'

"Is it gopher meat?"
  • If you're in need of some mail-order meat, look no further than Donald Trump Jr.'s Instagram, Stephen Colbert joked Tuesday night.

    Trump Jr. is currently promoting Good Ranchers, "a MAGA-friendly mail-order meat company," on Instagram. Colbert highlighted a video of Trump Jr. grilling, in which he says, "If you haven't heard about Good Ranchers before, you need to. They're one of the only companies out there delivering 100% American meat to your door 100% of the time," before offering a discount code for free meat.

    "Until they face consequences, the ex-president's family is still out there peddling their wares," Colbert said.

    Colbert went on to mock Trump Jr.'s commitment to the promo. "100% of the time, there will be meat at your door," said the late night host. "Every time you open it ― boom! More meat. Like it or not, meat there! You're gonna have to walk over the meat every time you open your door. That sounds less like a delivery and more like a threat. 'Hey, snitches get rib tips. All I'm saying is I'd hate to see your wife and kids end up with infinite meat.'"

    The Late Show host then played a clip of Trump Jr.'s fiancé, Kimberly Guilfoyle, grilling the meat indoors, with fire and smoke filling the air.

    "Holy carbon monoxide poisoning," said Colbert. "Who grills like that inside the house?"

    "Given this family's whole deal, what's the grift here?" he asked. "Is it gopher meat? Maybe."

    Colbert concluded by revealing that Good Ranchers had its Better Business Bureau accreditation revoked last year after it failed to deal with numerous customer complaints. One purchaser even said, "Steaks were discolored and had a sludge on them."

    The Late Show With Stephen Colbert airs at 11:35 PM ET on CBS.
