Donald Trump recently told Bill O'Reilly on Fox News that he had spoken to a "top cop" in Chicago who said he could solve all crime if the police were allowed to get "tougher" with suspects.
The problem is no one knows who this "top cop" might be.
So, host Stephen Colbert went looking for this "top cop."
You see where this is going, right?
RawStory has the recap:
“All I know is this,” Trump claimed. “I went to a top police officer in Chicago, who is not the police chief, and I could see by the way he was dealing with his people, he was a rough, tough guy, they respected him greatly.”
“We here at the Late Show, we’ve done a little digging, and that cop is here tonight,” Colbert began before introducing “Officer Rod Johnson.”
Colbert asked ‘Officer Johnson” what specifically he told Trump.
“I told him there are some naughty people out there who need to be in cuffs,’ Johnson replied, before identifying himself as a “rough tough cop.”
