MANHATTAN, NEW YORK CITY: On the May 15 episode of the 'Late Night' show, Stephen Colbert humorously mentioned that Donald Trump received a "suck-up visit" in court on May 14 from Vivek Ramaswamy.

Reportedly, during a conversation outside Donald Trump's New York hush-money trial on the morning of May 14, former Indian American presidential hopeful Ramaswamy accidentally made a 'Freudian slip'.



 

Ramaswamy had previously run against Trump for the Republican presidential nomination but is now reportedly seeking the vice presidential position.

During the segment, Colbert highlighted that the visit took an awkward turn at one point.

Colbert recounted the incident by saying, "While outside the court defending Trump, Ramaswamy made a bit of a Freudian slip," before showing footage of Ramaswamy discussing Trump's criminal trial related to the Stormy Daniels hush money case. 

“Let’s pray for our country being stronger on the other side of this disgusting sham politician,” Ramaswamy said, then quickly backtracked and corrected that last word: “Prosecution.”

“Whoa!” Colbert said as his audience howled in laughter, then mocked Ramaswamy with a host of other possible slips.

“This disgusting sham politician! I mean, prostitution! This pervert of justice, I mean, perversion of juices, I mean he must proclaim his flatulence,” Colbert quipped. “I mean innocence!”

"Other MAGA Congress people have been showing up for Trump this week," Colbert continued, moving to other news. 

In other news, BBC reported this week, that several rumored candidates for the vice-presidential position have been spotted alongside Mr Trump in the courtroom.

Among these VIPs are Senator JD Vance from Ohio, Congressman Byron Donalds from Florida, and former Republican presidential contenders Vivek Ramaswamy and North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum.

On May 14, the Donalds, Ramaswamy, and Burgum occupied the front row of benches behind Mr Trump in the courtroom, appearing almost as if they were anticipating their opportunity to vie for the party's presidential nomination.
