The host of CBS' "The Late Show" opened Thursday's broadcast by firing back at President Trump, who said in an interview with Time magazine that Colbert was "a no-talent guy" and not amusing. "There's nothing amusing about what he says", Trump said in a Time Magazine interview. "And what he says is filthy", Trump said in a Time magazine interview published Thursday.
In an interview with Time, Trump finally acknowledged Colbert, who's found ratings success in mocking his administration.
TMZ caught up with T.I.to get his thoughts about Trump's recent clapback at The Late Show's Stephen Colbert. The Federal Communications Commission received enough complaints to investigate the incident.
The way Colbert sees it, Trump's ridicule is a complete win. It only helps me, people like him.More news: Ransomware attack: What you need to know

'The guy was dying. The president also said that when he was on Colbert's show, "it was the highest ratings he ever had". The president of the United States has personally come after me and my show. It was high highest rating. Trump's remarks were specifically made in reference to Colbert's remarks regarding Trump and Putin. Despite news of the FCC investigating the on-air moment some viewers considered "homophobic", Colbert didn't seem too anxious, and ripped Trump for blatant hypocrisy about use of "adult language". Bush stopped by Colbert's show in September 2015, and the episode scored 6.6 million viewers. "But don't worry - you won the energy ratings college". Some called it homophobic and asked CBS to fire the late-night host using the hashtag #FireColbert on Twitter, but others defended Colbert, pointing out Trump's lewd comments about women behind the scenes at "Access Hollywood" in 2005, among others.
Apparently our president has nothing more important to do than to take time out of his busy (?) day and aim criticism at Stephen Colbert. He makes himself extremely easy to make fun of, especially when he's living up to his "Apprentice" catchphrase 'You're fired!'. You do. Really bad approval numbers.
