It was a historic day Thursday as James Comey testified before the Senate intelligence committee on the Trump-Flynn-Russia saga. Late night hosts couldn’t help but notice just how little he actually said about Russia. Trevor Noah on The Daily Show compared it to a clean version of a hip-hop song with all the good stuff being erased. Meanwhile, Stephen Colbert of The Late Show jumped right into interrogating Comey himself in a bit in which he “asked” the former FBI director if there was any evidence that President Trump colluded with Russia. Comey’s reply, taken from the actual hearing, was that it wasn’t a question he could answer in an open setting. So Colbert asked him, “What if we made a pillow fort? Would you tell me in there?”
But it wasn’t just the hearing that offered high drama. Seth Meyers on Late Night noted that during the testimony, White House staffers were frantically trying to keep Trump busy to avoid a tweetstorm. “It’s a sad state of affairs when the White House staff has to handle the president like a toddler on a road trip,” Meyers said.
