Stephen Colbert finally agrees with President Trump on something

It took only 400 odd days, but Stephen Colbert and President Trump are finally on the same page.

On Thursday’s episode of “The Late Show,” Colbert announced the news to his audience.

“I agree with Donald Trump about something,” Colbert admitted. “CNN lies.”

The host then explained that CNN had published an article about Dana Carvey’s impression of John Bolton on the previous night’s show, but made a grave mistake in its reporting.

“The headline was, ‘Look who’s playing John Bolton on ‘SNL,’” Colbert said of the network’s mistake. Then he switched to his Trump impression: “Fake. News.”

“I take everything back. I apologize. Donald Trump is a great President,” Colbert said during his insincere mea culpa.

Then the former “Daily Show” star did his best to educate CNN on its faulty fact-checking.

“Here’s how you can tell that clip wasn’t on ‘Saturday Night Live,’” he began. “It was a Wednesday, we tape during the daytime and we’re not live.”

“Still, it’s nice to be recognized, so thank you, MSNBC,” he deadpanned.
