Colbert gleefully responds 'I won' to insults from Trump

"Shame on you", said Colbert to the camera. There is nothing amusing about what he says.

So, it's no surprise the President had a LOT to say about Stephen Colbert's controversial quip about Trump being Vladimir Putin's "cock holster". "And you have kids watching", Trump said.

Colbert's show "builds up my base", Trump boasted in the interview.

Saturday Night Live is often credited as being the ultimate comedy incubator, where fresh-faced talents go to get their starts before expanding to bigger and better things.

'But his show was dying.

The President continued, "I've done his show".

Despite criticism, President Trump's staff took to the press immediately to defend the decision, a move Colbert notes in his latest rant. It was high highest rating.

"What we've learned about Trump over the past two years is that what it seems like he's doing is exactly what he's doing", he said. And you were very restrained. "Admirably restrained. But now you did it!"

Later, during his guest spot, Stewart told Colbert, "I've been reading about you".

The late-night host's never-ending barbs are really getting under the President's skin. His aforementioned May 1 tirade even prompted a social media campaign to #FireColbert. 'Oh no! Oh please, don't make me trend on Twitter again!

Trump told TIME magazine, "The guy was dying". But they're pleasant. And if I do something wrong they report on it. "I do occasionally use adult language - and I do it in public instead of the privacy of an "Access Hollywood" bus," he said to a host of boos from the audience.

Colbert acknowledged that poking fun at the president has been good for ratings, saying, "It's nearly like a majority of Americans didn't want you to be president". His show brought in an average of 3.06 million viewers over the week, up 12% from the week before, which helped him win late night for the fourteenth consecutive week, according to Nielsen data.

The comedian also corrected Trump's claim about the highest-rated episode saying an episode featuring Jeb Bush beat out the president's episode. "But don't worry - you won the energy ratings college".

The President still wasn't done and attacked Stephen's ratings too.

"That I do", Colbert said. "I hear they're thinking of switching your time slot with Mike Pence".
