Late-night talk shows respond to the Mueller report

"I had a pretty good weekend, not as good as Donald Trump's weekend, but still pretty good," the moderator of the "Late Show" told his audience on Monday night.

Colbert opened the show on Monday by speaking about the show delivery of the report of Special Prosecutor Robert Muller on Justice Department on Friday. He also spoke about the summary of the report by Attorney General William Barr. According to Barr's summary, Mueller found no evidence that Trump electoral colleagues worked with Russians to influence the outcome of the 2016 election.

Colbert, who called Barr "Employee Fred Flintstone," joked that the most worrying part of the news was that Trump was not actually a Russian asset.

"I say alarming news, because if Trump does not work with the Russians, what's wrong with him?" Said Colbert. "If they have nothing on them, why does he always say nice things about Vladimir Putin?"

The host further said that Müller's investigation ended "against climate change". [1

Colbert, who was a fierce critic of the president, said that many people apologize to Trump's critics. And so he committed himself.

"I said a thing or two about Donald Trump as if he were a terrible president," Colbert said. "Well … I just bite the bullet and say it: Mr. President, if you are watching and I know you are sorry you are a terrible president."

The Mueller also reported ABCs Jimmy Kimmel on Monday night.

"I was not so confused about an end since the finale of the series" Lost. "Said Kimmel on Monday" Jimmy Kimmel Live! "

Kimmel added Trump said it would not bother him if the attorney general released the full Mueller report.

"I think he said that about his taxes as well," Kimmel said. "So we'll see."

Trevor Noah of "The Daily Show" was also somewhat taken aback by the report's conclusion.

"Robert Mueller spends two years obstructing the judiciary, and his conclusion is" Me pull ". Do not you know, what do you think? Noah said on Monday night. "If I wanted to answer my questions with questions, I would not get any special advice, I would get a therapist!"
