Colbert did not say the words “Donald Trump” during his 13-minute summary of the day’s events. The term “Trump” was also starred out in screenshots of news headlines that the late-night host commented on.
It’s not the first time Colbert hasn’t said Trump’s name.
And Twitter users spotted the subtle omission.
My husband says Stephen Colbert is now using T**** instead of Trump when his name appears on the screen.

Serious question: why do people censor “Trump”? I notice some people on Twitter doing that; others do this: “tRump”. Tonight, Colbert censored Trump’s name
