But Trump clearly took umbrage with Colbert's comments.

When Jon Stewart took his seat opposite Late Show host Stephen Colbert Tuesday, he was visibly uneasy. "But I never thought one of those things would be show business".

And, Trump is correct making jokes at his expense has been good for Colbert's ratings, the late-night host agreed, adding, generously, "It's nearly as if the majority of Americans didn't want you to be president".

Not only did Fallon's freakish 2016 moment with Trump inspire a debate about the dangers of normalization, the roundly bashed clip made a lot of people very thankful for Fallon's direct competition, Stephen Colbert.

Colbert went on to say that Trump was only giving him more attention, and he noted that his ratings have been quite good lately. "And what he says is filthy", Trump told Time magazine this week. "And you have kids watching", Trump said.

"I would spend days with the worst people you could possibly imagine, You'd have to engage in this big sketch you've done". The guy was dying. But his show was dying.

"Welcome to the 'Late Show.' I'm your host, Stephen Colbert".

On Thursday's episode of The Late Show, Colbert responded with a cheerful teardown of the commander-in-chief.

But then he added that the only guest who had higher ratings was "low energy" Jeb Bush. He got a bit on the vulgar side, which got him into some trouble, but in trying to join the pile on, Donald Trump himself will probably not achieve the affect he desired. But now you did it...

The Late Show host attracted quite a lot of attention last week when he made a lewd joke about the president.

But the Time interview doesn't represent the first time that Trump and Colbert have found themselves tangling in the media - if indirectly.

But after all that, Colbert did offer Trump a solution to their conflict.

"It's true, the night you appeared on this show ... was very highly rated". "It's nearly like the majority of Americans didn't want you to be president!"

'You talk like a sign language gorilla who got hit in the head. You do. awful approval numbers. "I hear they're thinking about switching your time slot with Mike Pence".

He also managed to throw some insults at Colbert while still taking credit for his success.
