Colbert Invites Jon Stewart to Give Trump 'Equal Time' During His Monologue

Shortly before that, the commander-in-chief had also complained about "unfunny" late night hosts not giving him equal time on the television.

Trump on Saturday insisted, via Twitter, that Republicans "should be given Equal Time on T.V".

While some comedians might simply mock the tweet, Stephen Colbert took it as a mandate.

Stephen Colbert challenged Jon Stewart to say nice things about President Trump on The Late Show Monday night.

Colbert kicked things off with an anti-Trump joke, Stewart then hesitated to say something positive. Look out for the spin-off, Young Jesus.

Stewart was supposed to provide the "counterweight" to Colbert in light of Trump's assertion that late-night TV hosts are all one-sided and anti-Trump.

In Stewart's defense, it was a tough task and he did ask for more time. His own particular brand of silver lining involves the hypothetical situation "given the choice between having hot lava poured into my pee-hole, and Donald Trump being president". On Trump making it easier for employers to deny women birth control?

STEWART: Donald Trump is great to women.

However, he completely lost it when Colbert brought up Trump's freakish (read: disturbing) "calm before the storm" quote.

"What the f*ck is wrong with this guy?" Stewart fumed, tapping into his old Daily Show-style rage. You'll find out? A cliffhanger, surrounded by military people. Colbert explained that he'll give the "usual unfair slamming" of Trump and Stewart will give the "balance". Stewart exclaimed. "Calm before the storm?". Calm before the storm? How the- 'calm before the storm?' How is all this not the storm? He started out tame but could only compliment Trump for being "not a cannibal". Stewart said. "And what kind of a sociopath would use that terminology".
