"Late Show" host Stephen Colbert on Thursday responded to recents riots in Charlotte, North Carolina, following the fatal police shooting of black man, Keith Lamont Scott.

"The shooting of African-Americans by police officers, and the community outrage that follows," Colbert said, "seems to keep happening over and over again, no matter how many times we do nothing."

"In the face of continued heartbreaking racial strife," he added, "all eyes turn to civil rights icon the Reverend Dr. Donald Trump," who, during a town hall interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity, endorsed stop-and-frisk policing to curb inner-city crime.

"Stop-and-frisk is a bad idea," Colbert explained. "Not only has it been found unconstitutional, but if Trump's doing the frisking, it'll take him hours with those tiny little hands of his."
