Republican frontrunner Donald Trump has been all over the place this week, to almost cartoonish effect, so Stephen Colbert decided to talk to him in his true form.

Trump said that women should face punishment for abortions before switching the blame to the doctors who perform them. His story about his campaign manager’s alleged assault of a reporter changed multiple times in a day. His comments about women have turned into a cycle. He’s essentially a flip-flopping machine. And while Colbert has had Trump on The Late Show in-person and on the phone before, on Monday night, he brought back a cartoon version that just might be Trump’s best form of all.

He talks obsessively about polls, doesn’t understand how numbers work, and threatens to “spill the beans” on Colbert. You know, we can barely tell the difference between this version of Trump and the real thing.
