Watch Stephen Colbert And Jon Stewart Try To Give Trump 'Equal Time'

'What the f*ck is wrong with this guy?': Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert rail against 'sociopath' Trump

Colbert Invites Jon Stewart to Give Trump 'Equal Time' During His Monologue: He's… 'Not a Cannibal'

When it was Stewart's turn to say something positive, he ran into a bit of trouble coming up with exactly what to say.

Last week the New York Times published an explosive article detailing decades of sexual harassment claims against Weinstein, who has since been fired from his company, "forcing them to change the name of The Weinstein Company, to something more positive like Asbestos Child Slapper, Inc.", Colbert joked.

Late-night TV hosts were caught in President Trump's Twitter crosshairs over the weekend, prompting Late Show host Stephen Colbert to bring in reinforcements Monday for his response to POTUS. 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". "'Calm before the storm'?".

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

"Donald Trump... is not a cannibal", Stewart stated. Will Trump give humanity the rose?

Eventually, Stewart was unable to hold back any longer. "I choose the latter".

Stewart also recorded a quick web-exclusive video, in which he was inducted into The Late Show's "Trump Attacked Me on Twitter" Hall of Fame. "I'm in the groove now", he began.

Apparently, President Donald Trump is feeling really underappreciated these days.

To that question Colbert had a hard, no.

Stewart eventually broke after Colbert played comments in which Trump said at an event with military leaders that the gathering was the "calm before the storm".

The former Daily Show host said, "What the hell is wrong with this guy?" And "calm before the storm"? Stewart said. "And what kind of a sociopath would use that terminology".
