With the paperback version of his New York Times bestselling book "Black Privilege: Opportunity Comes to Those Who Create It" releasing next Tuesday, April 24th The Breakfast Club's very own Charlamagne Tha God pulled up to "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert" last night (Monday, April 16th). This isn't the first time Charlamagne has been on the late night talk show as this is his fourth appearance with Stephen Colbert.
Colbert and Charlamagne talked everything from Donald Trump's presidency to if we are living in a simulation. On the theory about if we're living in a simulation Charlamagne had to say this:
"I've been having those conversations with people that think we're in one big Sim game," he said. "Like there's something up there that's directing us all, and you gotta make the right choices in life in order to get to the next level. So I don't think we're gonna get to the next level because clearly, we made a poor choice, and it's number 45 in the White House right now."
Charlamagne also compared Trump's current presidency to a prison sentence saying:
"I think [Trump's presidency] is great for, like, a prison sentence, you know what I'm saying?" Charlamagne explained to a cackling audience. "Other than that, I think it's pretty good."
He also brought up how the bright side of Trump's presidency is great for content and there's always something to talk about with him.
Lastly, Charlamagne revealed that he used to pray to a picture of the Jackson 5 when he was young saying that he believed that when he prayed to it that Michael Jackson and his brothers were looking over him... but maybe not Tito Jackson. He clarifies that he thinks that presence he felt was actually God and he really thought Michael and his brothers were looking over him.
