Trump says criticism of Stephen Colbert 'only helps me'

That's right, Colbert is having all his classic Daily Show pals on as guests for Tuesday's show, including John Stewart, John Oliver, Samantha Bee, Ed Helms, and Rob Corddry.

"I can't believe you're leaving right in the middle of the George W. Bush administration", Bee said. Trump cited this as the reason for Comedy's firing, and not that the director said that he was formally investigating the president's ties to Russian Federation. I know something for sure: "there is no scenario in which I will ever say 'God, I wish George W. Bush was President'".

Stewart ended on a yogurt-infused sitcom-father speech, to cap off the nostalgia. But, on Monday, Stewart arrived again at the ideal time-right after Colbert made a controversial joke about Putin and President Trump. As Ajit Pai, Trump's choice to run the FCC, may or may not have implied that Colbert would be under investigation after a joke he recently made about Donald Trump, perhaps Cage will be their - and our - only hope.

POTUS then took aim at CNN's Chris Cuomo, calling the reporter a "chained lunatic" who is "like a boiler ready to explode".

"Sir, you attract more skinheads than free Rogaine", Colbert said criticizing the president.

"The things that you say, even if they are crass, or even if they in some ways are not respectful enough to the office of the president - we can insult, [Trump] can injury", Jon said.

Stephen Colbert hosted some of his former Daily Show cast mates on a special edition of The Late Show Tuesday night.

"I can't believe you're leaving us, Stephen, it's insane", Helms added.

"I would spend days with the worst homophobes and sometimes just the worst people you could possibly imagine", Bee recalled.

"That I do", Colbert admitted.

If you didn't know, Stephen got in a bit of trouble during a recent rant against Donald Trump, which had some asking for him to get fired from his CBS gig. "I miss the process of making the show". But after today's ratings revealed that not only did the show remain the most watched late night program, but the controversy gave the series a 12% bump in viewership, I'd guess they probably have no complaints.

Colbert jumps in to tell a story about running from a KKK rally after attendees realized he was with Comedy Central.

Stewart, meanwhile, retired from the "Daily Show" in 2015 and handed the anchor desk off to Trevor Noah.
