Steven Colbert, Jimmy Fallon, and Conan O’Brien have banded together in a segment to respond to President Donald Trump after he criticized them during a rally Monday night in South Carolina.

The three late-night comedians did a sketch together and ran it on Tuesday night’s “The Late Show” on CBS and “The Tonight Show” on NBC in a rare display of solidarity. “Conan” on TBS is on hiatus.

The sketch showed Colbert working at his computer when he gets a video phone call from Fallon. “Hey, lowlife,” Fallon said, to which Colbert responded, “Hey, lost soul.” They continue through all the names Trump has called them, and then they call O’Brien. 

O’Brien is shocked that Trump is president, then tells them to be civil. The sketch ends with Fallon and Colbert having lunch at the Red Hen restaurant, which recently refused service to White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Late-night hosts including Jimmy Kimmel, Samantha Bee, and Trevor Noah in addition to Colbert, Fallon, and O'Brien have spoken of Trump, his family members, and others in the administration in increasingly blunt terms, sparking backlash from some supporters and in Bee’s case, an advertiser boycott.

In Colbert’s monologue on Tuesday, he repeated Trump’s words that “that guy on CBS is — what a lowlife, what a lowlife.” Colbert joked he wouldn’t let the president talk that way about James Corden, who hosts “The Late Late Show” on CBS following Colbert.

“Oh, he was talking about me,” Colbert deadpanned. 

In a tweet and at the rally, Trump said Fallon was a “nice guy,” but needed to “be a man” after Fallon apologized to fans who accused him of “humanizing” Trump by having him as a guest on the show and ruffling his hair before the 2016 election

Fans on Twitter did not seem appreciative of the Trump-bashing humor.
