New Delhi [India], Sept. 18 (ANI): The whole world knew that Stephen Colbert was going to be a savage on the Emmy stage.

And when it comes to blast President Donald Trump, Colbert always steps up his game.

Colbert during his monologue by saying, "There's no way anyone could watch that much TV, other than the president. Hello sir, thank you for joining us. Looking forward to the tweets!"

He admitted that the biggest star of the year, in fact, was Trump, reminding the audience and viewers at home of the former reality star's obsession with the Emmys.

"However you feel about the president, you can't deny that every show was influenced by Donald Trump in some way. We all know the Emmys mean a lot to Donald Trump because he was nominated multiple times for Celebrity Apprentice, but he never won. If he had won an Emmy I bet he wouldn't have run for president," noted Colbert.

Adding, "He added, "So in a way, this is all your fault, I thought you people loved morally compromised anti-heroes."

But the biggest jab came when Colbert welcomed special guest Sean Spicer out onto the stage.

"What really matters to Donald Trump is ratings, you have to have the big numbers," said Colbert.

Spicer said, referencing the now infamous press conference he gave regarding the crowds at Trump's presidential inauguration, noted, "This will be the largest audience to witness an Emmys, period. Both in person and around the world."

This is the first time Stephen Colbert is hosting the show. (ANI)
