Give Stephen Colbert credit for creativity. In his latest tongue-lashing of President Trump, the late-night comic combined insects and spirituality.

But the naughty language came not on his CBS “The Late Show.” It arose during an on-stage chat with director Michael Moore at his one-man Broadway play “The Terms of My Surrender.”

“As the two men sat in armchairs with a large American flag illuminated in the background, Mr. Moore asked Mr. Colbert at one point, ‘How do you carry on now?’ — a reference to the liberal late-night host’s approach to the Trump presidency,” said The New York Times.

Colbert said: “Trump keeps summoning monsters of abstraction — things that aren’t real — they’re extensions of the ordinary, fears that you have that he plays on.”

Colbert then added: “He wants to brush people into a corner where he can shine his feeble, [f———] anemic firefly of a soul.”

Fireflies have yet to comment, but others did.
