Joe Wong, a Korean-Chinese-American stand-up comedian, recently blasted U.S. President Donald Trump’s plan to build a wall during an episode of “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”
Wong, who studied at Rice University in Texas and has a degree in Biochemistry, started his monologue with jokes about immigration and continued from there.
But what really got viewers going was the joke he made about Trump’s plan to build a wall preventing illegal immigrants from entering the country.
“Trump wants to build a wall to stop immigration. I’m from China, so I know a lot about walls – they don’t work,” he said. This plan of his, said Wong, would later become a “huge tourist attraction,” most likely referring to the Great Wall of China that was built to protect the country from raiders and invasion from nomadic groups.
He then backhandedly praised Trump for “contributing more to American’s health than all the YMCAs combined” after he took office, explaining that Americans had been participating in marches; namely, the KKK March, Anti-KKK March, Women’s March, Anti-Child Separation March, adding “and you know how much Americans hate exercise.”
Wong then continued to note how Trump contributed positively to the health of other countries as well stating, “laughter is the best medicine.”
“Have you seen his performance at the U.N. (United Nations)? He killed!”
