The Late Show with Stephen Colbert tweeted Tuesday night's cold-open sketch early, and for good reason.

On Wednesday, The Tonight Showand Late Show aired the exact same cold open for their latest episodes, a surprising team-up which saw Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert and Conan O'Brien (whose on late-night show is on hiatus this week) dishing on Trump over video chat.

"Well, that's not right", Stephen said.

The Late Show host then adds Conan O'Brien to the call.

Jimmy Fallon, Conan O'Brien and Stephen Colbert addressed negative comments about them by the U.S. president. Fallon asked. "I'm busy having no talent!" Well, you don't, but late night television shows keep trying. However, Donald Trump doesn't seem to understand this as he was extremely offended when Jimmy Fallon dissed his hair from an appearance he made on The Tonight Show back in 2016.

Fallon already responded on Monday night, saying in his opening monologue, "Shouldn't he have more important things to do?" "Hey, lost soul", Colbert responds. "I heard he said some pretty bad stuff about us", Fallon said.

Colbert brought Trump's attacks up in a later segment of his show.

"Naturally, Trump used his rally to focus on the issue everyone's most enraged about: talk shows", Colbert said.

"The guy on CBS, what a lowlife", Trump said.

The trio joined forces to respond to President Trump's comments. "He's president? Wow. How's he doing?"

"Well guys, give him time, okay", O'Brien said.

"And, remember, please be civil", Conan remarked.

As O'Brien signed off, Fallon and Colbert agreed to meet for lunch at the Red Hen in Lexington, Virginia, the restaurant that denied service to White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Friday, June 22. "You're the president. Why are you tweeting at me?" He says, "If we're not careful, this could start to get ugly".
