Late-night TV hosts craft comic response to Trump comments

O'Brien then told Fallon and Colbert to give Trump more time and to do not forget to "please, be civil" because if they aren't careful "this thing could start to get ugly".

Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon and Conan O'Brien teamed up on Tuesday night to take some shots at President Donald Trump. He also described the comedians, including Colbert, Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel, as "lowlifes", "lost souls" and "terrible".

Donald Trump recently went after late night hosts at a rally in SC, calling out Fallon, Colbert, and Jimmy Kimmel specifically, while making generalizations about all the current late night lineup.

"Really? That doesn't sound like him", said Colbert.

They also enlisted fellow TV host Conan O'Brien for the skit played out over a video call. "The real estate guy who sells steaks?" he asks in disbelief. "I mean honestly are these people amusing? Why are you tweeting at me?!"

During his monologue, Colbert pointed out that Trump said at Monday's rally that "the guy on CBS is - what a low-life, what a low-life".

One night earlier, during a campaign rally in West Columbia S.C.

Fallon recently apologised for the interview, which led to Trump accusing him of "whimpering " on Twitter and telling him he should "be a man".

"Not so good", Colbert informs the TBS late-night star. "And remember, please be civil". Colbert responds, "Hey, lost soul".

After hanging up on Conan, Fallon and Colbert then proceeded to joke about having lunch at Red Hen - the restaurant that infamously refused to serve White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Trump then referred to Colbert, saying: "Johnny Carson was talented".

"Oh to which I say, no talent?"

"The last time someone else tooted Trump's horn it cost him $130,000", Fallon said.
