Donald Trump spent part of Monday night insulting late-night hosts including Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert, and Jimmy Kimmel.

Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon and Conan O'Brien have teamed up to respond to President Donald Trump's attacks on talk show hosts during his speech at a rally on Monday, June 25.

If Trump had targeted Colbert with the same "be a man!" tweet he aimed in Fallon's direction this week, the entire next "Late Show" monologue would have been a splashy, scathing response.

The potentially history-making shared sketch kicks off with Colbert working on his opening monologue when he's interrupted by Fallon, who greets him with, "Hey lowlife!". Colbert asks, and they joke about how they definitely didn't watch Trump's rally, where he apparently said some bad stuff about them. The collaboration between Fallon, Colbert, and O'Brien did just that, pointing out how Trump attacks others with name-calling and other attacks while members of the GOP hypocritically demand "civility" toward the administration.

O'Brien: "If we're not careful, this thing could start to get ugly". "I mean, this guy on CBS has no talent!"

The pair riffed on the president's remarks, even looping in O'Brien, who pretended he didn't know Trump was even president. "He's lost, he looks like a lost soul".

"Oh to which I say, no talent? It's pretty much the only thing I have in common with National Football League players", Fallon said, referencing Trump's attacks on the National Football League and its players last season.

"As you may have heard, last night the President of the United States went after me on Twitter". He also said he had made a donation to an organisation that provides education and legal services to refugees in Trump's name. "I don't have his number, I don't want his number", Fallon said during the show.

During a rally where he stumped for S.C. Gov. Henry McMaster ahead of Tuesday's primary, Trump commented on the deluge of criticism coming from late night hosts.
