Stephen Colbert took advantage of Donald Trump skipping the Fox News GOP debate in Iowa Thursday (Jan. 28) to put together a “Trump vs. Trump” debate — which is basically just a five-minute exercise in demonstrating all the times Trump has contradicted himself.

Welcome to “The 2016 Top Tremendous All-You-Can Trump Luxury Presidential Debate.” Highlights include:

Trump on opponent Ted Cruz: “I don’t think Ted Cruz has a great chance … he’s a nasty guy, nobody likes him” and “I really do, I like Ted Cruz a lot.”

Trump on democratic candidate Hillary Clinton: “Hillary Clinton was the worst secretary of state in the history of the United States” and “Hillary Clinton is a terrific woman. I’m a little biased because I’ve known her for years, but I think she really works hard and she does a good job. I like her.”

Trump on Megyn Kelly: “You have done a great job, by the way, and I mean it” and “I have zero respect for Megyn Kelly, I don’t think she’s very good at what she does.”

“I wanna thank Donald Trump for being just as divided as this country is,” says Colbert in conclusion.
