Late night hosts respond to Trump’s firing of FBI chief James Comey

Late night reacts to Comey firing Late night comedy hosts found themselves surprised by the news that President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday. Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel, and Trevor Noah had to swiftly respond to the breaking news.

For Colbert and “The Late Show,” the news broke during the afternoon taping of the CBS broadcast.

“That shows no gratitude at all,” Colbert said of the firing in his opening monologue. “Did Trump forget about the Hillary emails that Comey talked about?”

Then, in his best Trump voice, Colbert said, “Thanks for the presidency, Jimmy,” and added, “Don’t let the door hit ‘ya where the Electoral College split ‘ya.”
