The most recent tweet from President Donald Trump dissing late-night hosts earned a scathing response from Stephen Colbert, who addressed the Trump tweet in his monologue throughout Thursday’s version of “The Late Present with Stephen Colbert”.
In his tweet, Trump slams the “three very weak and untalented late night time ‘hosts’,” quoting a “Fox & Buddies” contributor who wonders what they’ll do in 2024 when he’s now not POTUS:
“To start with, sir, three?” Colbert quipped, reminding Trump that there are far more than three late-night hosts today (Colbert’s feedback come on the 4:45 mark within the video above).
“James Corden, Seth Meyers, Sam Bee, Trevor Noah, Conan, Desus & Mero are simply as weak and untalented as me and the Double Jim Jims.”

“And what do you imply, what are we going to do while you’re not president? First, there’s the parade….” Colbert joked.
As for what they’ll do within the late-night unemployment line, Colbert suggested Trump to tune in and discover out for himself — that’s, “if the warden offers you TV privileges.”
