"Late Show" host Stephen Colbert last night weighed in on Donald Trump's bizarre victory press conference in Pensacola, Florida, Tuesday. As Colbert noted, "Trump's victory speech had a little bit of product placement."

"Trump gave his victory speech next to a pyramid of raw steak," Colbert said, referring to the Bush Brothers steak Trump tried to pass off as his defunct Trump Steaks. "He was either trying to prove Mitt wrong or introducing his new running mate, Trump/Pile of Meat 2016. Good luck telling them apart."

"It was like watching an infomercial," he continued. "If he's elected, this would make Trump the first president to come with a sticker, 'As seen on TV.'"
