Presidentappeared to be the person who shall not be named in ’s monologue on Thursday’s broadcast of “The Late Show.”
Colbert did not say the words “Donald Trump” during his 13-minute summary of the day’s events. The term “Trump” was also starred out in screenshots of news headlines the late night host commented on.
And Twitter users spotted the subtle omission.
My husband says Stephen Colbert is now using T**** instead of Trump when his name appears on the screen.

Serious question: why do people censor “Trump”? I notice some people on Twitter doing that; others do this: “tRump”. Tonight, Colbert censored Trump’s name
