"Is it because what he did to Hillary?" he asked.

"He fired James Comey, the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which is kind of like O.J. Which now will evaporate like cotton candy in the ocean".

"I know you're comfortable; I don't feel comfortable..." The Late Show host turns 53 on May 13, 2017.

He added that hosting The Daily Show helped him "make sense" of the news, but "the things that I've gained in terms of time spent with family and things like that, I wouldn't give up".

In the skit, Stewart, wearing a dark brown wig, cries and eats yogurt as he realizes that his correspondents will 'all spread your wings and leave me'. When the crowd started cheering on hearing it, Colbert chided them for doing so, but in a sarcastic manner. One Daily Show just would not be enough. "How could you call in someone who works for you and say, 'This sexual harassment stuff, and the money we're paying out, it's got to stop, ' when you're paying out money for sexual harassment?" "There was no accountability throughout the entire building".

Sometime you create lots of chances and come away with nothing, or the contrary can happen". Torino keeper Joe Hart couldn't keep out Gonzalo Higuain's late strike.

The joke prompted complaints that it was homophobic, with some liberals arguing that Colbert's joke would prompt a good deal more outrage if a conservative had delivered it. Later in the heavily edited interview, Stewart came to his former sidekick's defense, seemingly in response to the recent hullabaloo surrounding his joke about Trump, whom he referred to as Russian president Vladimir Putin's "c-k holster."

Stewart didn't understand the fuss. "And what he says is filthy", Trump told Time. "Like, it's the difference between insult and injury". But overall, Stewart wanted viewers to know that viewers are in good hands with Colbert - and that the latter's profanity is not what America should be protesting with hashtags. Helms starred in the "Hangover" film franchise, and Corddry has been on beloved shows like "Ballers" and "Childrens Hospital".

POTUS then took aim at CNN's Chris Cuomo, calling the reporter a "chained lunatic" who is "like a boiler ready to explode".

"We went out to a cross burning in the summertime, as you do", Colbert said. "I'm all ready to hang up my poster of my two favourite comedians: Bill Cosby and Subway spokesman Jared Fogle". As he packed away his iBook and lucky Steve Carrel mug, Samantha Bee - wearing a perm and sequined jacket - walked in to declare her surprise at Colbert's decision to leave during George W. Bush's presidency.
