"Late Show" host Stephen Colbert on Tuesday night addressed GOP nominee Donald Trump's Kentucky-fried appeal to working-class America:

"There it is, extra-crispy and some chicken," Colbert said. "It does bolster his military credentials because, clearly, he does have a good relationship with the colonel."

Colbert argued Trump's "blowing the whole 'man-of-the-people' thing" by eating his humongous bucket o' chicken with silverware.

"If you want to seem relatable, don't eat KFC on a private jet," Colbert told Trump. "If you want to be relatable, eat lobster on a cross-town bus."
