What we’re watching: Three late night hosts vs. Trump

Late night hosts Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon and Conan O'Brien recorded a joint sketch poking fun at President Trump and the digs he made against them at a South Carolina rally this week.

The backdrop: Trump called Colbert a "lowlife" and Fallon a "lost soul" at the rally, asking the crowd, "Honestly, are they even funny?"

In the video...

  • The bit started off as a video call between Colbert and Fallon.
  • Colbert and Fallon greeted each other, "Hey, lowlife" and "Hey, lost soul." At the end of the video, the two jokingly made lunch plans at Red Hen — the restaurant that asked Press Secretary Sarah Sanders to leave last week.
  • O'Brien joins in: "Donald Trump? The real estate guy who sells steaks? He’s president? Wow, how’s he doing? ... Well guys, give him time, okay? And remember, please be civil. If we’re not careful this thing could start to get ugly."
