Stephen Colbert Face-Timed with Jimmy Fallon and Conan O'Brien to Talk About Trump

The late-night hosts teamed up for an epic sketch

Keisha Hatchett

It's official: America's top late-night hosts are teaming up to take on Donald Trump.

On Wednesday, The Tonight Showand Late Showaired the exact same cold open for their latest episodes, a surprising team-up which saw Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert and Conan O'Brien (whose on late-night show is on hiatus this week) dishing on Trump over video chat.

The potentially history-making shared sketch kicks off with Colbert working on his opening monologue when he's interrupted by Fallon, who greets him with, "Hey lowlife!" Colbert then responds with, "Hey lost soul!"

The nicknames are a reference to Trump, who called Fallon a "lost soul" and Colbert a "lowlife" and "this guy on CBS" during a rally in South Carolina on Wednesday. Trump also recently engaged in a Twitter war with Fallon after the comedian expressed regret for ruffing his hair during that infamous Tonight Show interview in 2016, resulting in a back-and-forth between the two.

After trading remarks on Trump's latest late night insults, Colbert and Fallon loop O'Brien into this cross-network collaboration. Once O'Brien joins the chat on the bizarre Trump situation, he implores Fallon and Colbert to "please be civil," a clear dig at Republicans demanding civility after Sarah Huckabee Sanders was booted from a Virginia restaurant for working for Trump.

The video ends with Colbert rebranding his show as The Late Show with the Guy on CBS, a funny ending to a very funny video that makes us want to see more late-night team-ups down the line.

The Late Show with Stephen Colbert airs weeknights at 11:35/10:35c on CBS.
