Stephen Colbert Joins the Trump Twitter Intervention on ‘The Late Show’

Here’s a clip from last night’s Late Show, where Stephen Colbert responds to the news that Trump’s aides staged a “Twitter intervention” for him last week while also addressing yesterday’s big news that The Late Show beat The Tonight Show in the ratings for the 2016-2017 season – a first for the show since 1995. “Dear President Trump, your tweeting has affected me in the following ways: My ratings are up. But President Trump, some nights, half my monologue is just about things you’ve tweeted. You’re squeezing out other fun news stories,” Colbert says, reading the “Twitter-vention” letter he drafted for Trump to the audience. “Please give up this harmful addiction and find another coping mechanism. Have you tried drinking? Because that’s what I’ve been doing, and it’s going pretty great.”
