"Late Show" host Stephen Colbert on Wednesday examined the "tightening" presidential race between Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton.

"Over the summer, Donald Trump was way behind, but a new CNN poll has him up by two points nationally," Colbert said. "I'm not sure how that happened. I'm gonna say that angry white men have started to reproduce asexually."

And with the primaries squarely in his rearview, Trump has been focusing his verbal attacks on Clinton, saying she doesn't have a "presidential look."

"What does Trump mean by 'presidential look'? Is it something in this area?" Colbert responded, waving his hand over his genitals. "I think Trump is pointing out that you can't spell 'presidential' without 'penis,' or if you want to use all the letters, 'idle rat penis.'"
