Thanos Reads Trump's Tweets On The Late Show

Reading President Donald Trump's social media ramblings aloud isn't something one considers when accepting the offer to play a Marvel Cinematic Universe baddie. 

Avengers: Infinity War actor Josh Brolin showed off his comedic side during a recent appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, reading out in his gruff Thanos voice a selection of Trump's more bizarre Twitter posts. 

"It would seem very hard to obstruct justice for a crime that never happened. Witch hunt!" Brolin bellowed, reading a tweet from May 2018. 

Colbert instantly responded that Brolin speaking as the Mad Titan as Trump is totally convincing, since both figures can be considered pretty power-hungry at times. "Yeah, I buy it, I buy it," the talk show host stated. 

Another Trump tweet Brolin delivered in his Thanos voice was a classic, posted to the president's Twitter account back in January of 2018, and sounds exactly like something the intergalactic tyrant would say: "President of the United States on my first try. I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius... and a very stable genius at that!"

The actor rounded out his tweet-reading session with a perfectly guttural, "MAGA," the acronym for the "Make America Great Again" campaign slogan that Trump popularized during his run up to the 2016 election. Former U.S. President Ronald Reagan utilized the similar slogan "Let's Make America Great Again" when he campaigned in 1980, but Trump and his supporters haven't exactly cited Reagan as a source. 

Brolin reading out Trump's tweets is hilarious, but nothing quite captures the wacky weirdness of Andy Serkis delivering them as his Lord of the Rings character Gollum. Let's just put it this way: Once you witness Serkis snarl "What's covfefe, precious?" in Gollum's voice, your life will never be the same.

Now that Brolin has poked a bit of fun at Trump, it seems like only a matter of time before the president responds — or insists the actor fork over the Infinity Gauntlet so he can wield it himself.
