At this point, it’s pretty clear that no one is safe from a Donald Trump feud. Not world leaders, not members of his administration and certainly not the late night hosts who bash him nightly. Trump’s most recent beef is with Jimmy Fallon for saying he regretted how he handled Trump’s 2016 appearance on The Tonight Show. Jimmy received harsh criticism for normalizing the then-presidential candidate and lightheartedly fluffing up his hair. Over the weekend and at a rally on Monday, Trump addressed Fallon’s comments, calling him a “lowlife” telling him to “be a man.”
For some reason, halfway through his rant on Fallon, Trump appeared to pivot to a critique of Stephen Colbert. Sure, Colbert is always criticizing him, but they haven’t had a public back-and-forth in months. Trump referred to “this guy on CBS” (apparently meaning Colbert) and said that he has no talent.
Well, if the president is going to publicly degrade them, at least they have each other. On The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Tuesday, the two commiserated over Skype about their lost souls and lack of talent. They also conferenced in Conan O’Brien who was shocked to learn “the real estate guy who sells steaks” is the president of the United States.
Fingers crossed there’s a followup video in the works from the hosts’ dinner at The Red Hen.
