Colbert Corrects Trump Jr Comparison Of Syrian Refugees To Poisoned Skittles

Stephen Colbert corrected Donald Trump Jr. after the Presidential nominee's son posted a message likening Syrian refugees to a bowl of poisoned Skittles.

Seeking to promote his father's campaign, the younger Trump posted a tweet featuring a bowl of Skittles with a warning: "If I had a bowl of skittles and I told you just three would kill you. Would you take a handful?"

"That's our Syrian refugee problem."

Trump Jr. added "This image says it all. Let's end the politically correct agenda that doesn't put America first."

The post was criticized on social media, with one person pointing out the photographer who took the photo that Jr. used without permission was in fact a refugee himself.

Wrigleys America, the company that makes Skittles, even weighed in.

"Skittles are candy. Refugees are people," vice-president of the company's corporate affairs Denise Young said.

On the 'Late Show', Colbert corrected both Trump Jr.'s sentence structure and his math.
