Stephen Colbert loves Donald Trump's new 'Spanky' nickname

Stephen's Nightly Laughs

Stephen Colbert looked at the growing Facebook scandal on Friday's Late Show.

Colbert aired a clip from CNN that shows Richard Ben-Veniste, a former Watergate special prosecutor, claiming that "people are referring to him here in Washington by a new nickname...he's now known as 'Spanky and that's not a good thing". Featuring bandleader Jon Batiste and his band Stay Human, the show is broadcast from the historic and newly renovated Ed Sullivan Theater.

Last night on The Late Show, host Stephen Colbert brought up the president of the United States in his opening monologue. However, Thursday night the "Late Show" host did something he hasn't done before: apologize. Prior to that, Colbert spent eight years as a correspondent on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" as an on-air personality and writer of news satire for the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning series. "Colbert asked. "'I would never cheat on my wife-with her.

"I take everything back!" he exclaimed.

Colbert also noted that, in response to the controversy, businesses have ended their associations with the social media network, in particularly Playboy magazine. "Still, its nice to be recognized so thank you, MSNBC".

While Colbert insinuated he wanted to draw more conservative viewers (like those who watch "Roseanne"), he still continued to take jabs at the president.

Stephen Colbert finally found something to agree with President Trump about. After playing a clip of the president saying he's even better at construction than being president, the comedian joked, "Don't sell yourself short, sir: You suck at both".
