The Late Show with Stephen Colbert marked its 3rd straight week as the most-watched late night show. Averaging 3 million viewers, last week’s Late Show had its largest margin of victory over NBC’s Tonight Show since Colbert’s premiere week in 2015.
On last night’s show, Colbert asked MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough if Donald Trump will make it through his full first term.
“That’s up to Donald Trump,” Scarborough said, adding, “If he continues the way he continued the first month, I don’t think it’s sustainable. I don’t think it’ll last four years.”
“It hit me how grave the situation was this past weekend the president said what he said about the press,” Scarborough said, adding “I hope the president corrects. And I hope he makes more decisions like he made with Gen. McMcaster. That’s good. I hope he stays off Twitter. But if he doesn’t we all have to do our part as Americans.”
Scarborough, who moonlights as a rock musician, also performed on the show. He sang the Elvis Costello song What’s So Funny ’bout Peace, Love and Understanding? “The words are so appropriate right now,” said Scaroborough. WATCH:
