Stephen Colbert Enlists Jimmy Fallon & Conan O'Brien For Trump Response

Stephen Colbert Enlists Jimmy Fallon & Conan O'Brien For Trump Response”

During the cold open for The Late Show, Stephen Colbert had a skit with Jimmy Fallon and Conan O'Brien, in which Colbert and Fallon spoke about President Donald Trump's comments about them.

Colbert and Fallon responded by broadcasting a mock video chat, in which they addressed each other as "lowlife" and "lost soul".

"Well, that's not right", Stephen said.

O'Brien then told Fallon and Colbert to give Trump more time and to keep in mind to "please, be civil" because if they aren't careful "this thing could start to get ugly". President who? Donald Trump, the real estate guy who sells steaks. he's president?' Conan says after answering.

It's not the first time Jimmy Fallon and Stephen Colbert have butted heads with Donald Trump. The sketch starts with Fallon calling Colbert and calling him "low life". Both Fallon and Colbert used the bit as their cold opens on Tuesday.

No late night wars in 2018, everyone's getting along. "Hey lost soul!" Colbert responded. "Hey Mr. President! I will not stand here and let you talk that way about James Corden", Colbert said in response to the Trump remark about "the guy on CBS". "That's Conan", Colbert said, before calling O'Brien. "He's president? How's he doing?"

The host also disputed Trump's claim that Fallon had called him to tell him that he had "monster ratings". Instead, he commented on Trump saying people should "toot their own horns".

"Oh. Well guys, give him time", says Conan, adding, "And, remember, please be civil". "Go Trump! We're with you all the way", said one, while another weighed in with, "Trump just keeps winning - get over it".

The Red Hen denied service to press secretary Sarah Sanders this past week, too.

"So Melania, if you're watching I don't think your anti-bullying campaign is working", he said to laughs.
