High on the list of things Donald Trump has claimed have been rigged against him over the years is the Emmys. “The Emmys are all politics, that’s why, despite nominations, The Apprentice never won—even though it should have many times over,” he tweeted in 2012. 

That fact came up last night in the third and final presidential debate, as Hillary Clinton needled Trump about his history of blaming personal losses on everything but himself. And after the debate wrapped, Stephen Colbert really piled on, trolling Trump IRL with his two Emmys. “Donald, you really should get one. They’re fantastic,” he tells the live audience, before kissing both trophies and knocking out some curls. 

The responses on Twitter were righteous.
