Late Night Antics
Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon, and Conan O'Brien joined forces to respond to Trump digs
How's this for some collusion — on Tuesday, late night hosts Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon, and Conan O'Brien joined forces to respond to President Trump's earlier tirade against them.
On Monday night, Trump was in South Carolina for a rally in support of Gov. Henry McMaster, but ended up going on a rant about Colbert ("the guy from CBS" who is a "low-life"), Fallon ("a lost soul"), and their comrade Jimmy Kimmel ("terrible" with "no talent"). "Honestly, are these people funny?" Trump asked. "And I can laugh at myself. Frankly, if I couldn't, I'd be in big trouble."
Fast forward to Tuesday night, when Colbert and Fallon opened their shows with the exact same opening, featuring their video chat with O'Brien — who was not a target of Trump's, and implored everyone to be civil because "if we're not careful, this thing could start to get ugly."
