Comedian Stephen Colbert has made it loud and clear that he doesn’t feel “proud” to live in the United States any longer.
While in New Zealand, the host of “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” asked two actors if they were proud of their country, and in return, shared how he feels about the current state of his country.
“Are you proud of your country here?” Colbert asked, to which New Zealand comedian and actor Bret McKenzie responded, “Oh yeah, love it.” New Zealand actress Lucy Lawless also said she was proud of her country.
Colbert then went on to say, “I miss that feeling.” Lawless responded, “What must that be like?”
Colbert was in Wellington, New Zealand, filming part of his late-night show — on which he has been a frequent critic of President Donald Trump and the state of the nation under his administration.

“The quick answer would be no, because it would be hard for me to be properly respectful of the office, because I think that he is so disrespectful of the office that it’s very hard to perceive him as I would want to perceive a president in terms of their status and the dignity and the representation of the United States so I think just for safety’s sake, it wouldn’t be a good idea,” Colbert previously told CNN.
