  • Stephen Colbert The Late Show

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. Now, Jon had a serious ax to grind over how he's seen comedians, like Stephen, treated after they diss President Donald Trump, 70.

"We can insult, he (Trump) can injure", said Stewart, after initially teasing Colbert about his "potty mouth".

"No", said Stewart. "I enjoyed it and would try and heighten it. John's lucky we didn't do that on pavement".

Shortly before Tuesday night's "Daily Show" reunion between Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart, news broke that Donald Trump had fired James Comey, the third official to be dismissed while investigating the president and his associates.

Stewart, who also serves as an executive producer of The Late Show, also sat down with Colbert to discuss his retirement from hosting and how sometimes he misses it.

There was also a part in the show which included recreating a scene from the break room of "The Daily Show" in summer of 2005, the time when Colbert left the show to start a spin-off series, "The Colbert Report". "We know how much his family means to him, and all we can do at a moment like this is give him the love and support he will surely need at this hour". "There are guys, big guys in hoods saying to me, 'Comedy, what? It's the difference between insult and injury", Stewart concluded.

"You know James Comey was sacked by Trump tonight?"

"This was what it was like to hang out backstage for years at The Daily Show, " Colbert said as the nostalgia trip came to an end. "There will never be another president this good for comedy", Samantha Bee said.

"That I do. I learned it from you, Dad", Colbert replied, laughing. "And she goes, 'HAUL A**!' And we ran as fast as we could", Colbert recalled.

Colbert then pointed to Stewart and said, "I wouldn't have this gig or any gig if it hadn't been for this man".

He's been pretty quiet since leaving, but he's joined Colbert on The Late Show for a couple goofs now and then. I'm in a studio surrounded by craft services, yet in a Benjamin Button scenario, I'm at the beginning of the movie, and you all seem fine.

But regardless of the potential consequences, Stewart and Colbert continue to just be two jesters unafraid to make fun of the king.

"The process of making the show became entwined with the process of me making sense of things I didn't understand, so I miss that".
