Stephen Colbert can't get enough of a genius, accidentally viral plan to troll Trump

Like you, Stephen Colbert has had just about enough of this bleak news cycle: death, destruction, a racist president, and terrifying temperature records, and as he explains here, a 50/50 chance of a recession! Yay!

So you can’t blame him for wanting to start Thursday night’s show with a fun story: a petition that started as a bit of a joke has picked up more than 250,000 signatures. 

The petition is for New York City to rename a certain stretch of Fifth Avenue “President Barack H. Obama Avenue”, and it delights the Late Show host not only because he gets to make his best joke of the week:

“Every time you try to turn left, you get blocked by Mitch McConnell.”

But also because it would force a certain president’s eponymous Tower to change its address to… 725 Obama Avenue. 

“Lord, please,” Colbert begs, “Lord, if you love me at all, make that happen.”
