Late night was still in mourning Monday night over the Bowling Green Massacre.
Both Stephen Colbert and Seth Meyers brought up the national tragedy "that did not occur" on their shows, digging into President Donald Trump over criticizing the media for not covering terrorist attacks.
"The president is accusing the media of refusing to cover terrorist attacks. Why? Reasons," joked Colbert. "You know the old news adage, if it bleeds, don't talk about it."
"In one case, the president is right. In one case there was a terror case the press did not talk about. It's something called the Bowling Green Massacre," he continued, getting huge laughs from the audience. "I was not going to talk about this story, because it happened last Thursday, and the crazy train had gone way down the track since then, and I figured this tired hobo just missed his chance to jump in the box car. But today the president just gave me a reason to talk about it."
"I think we all remember where we weren't when we didn't hear that nothing had happened," he continued of Kellyanne Conway's now-infamous remarks.
"They need to present both sides of the story, the things that did happen and the things that didn't happen. Then let the victims of the bowling green massacre decide if they were killed. So far, not one of them has come forward," added Colbert. "I don't want to jump to any conclusions. Just because it didn't happen doesn't mean it wasn't an inside job. Think about it! If America isn't going to be attacked, who's most likely not to do it? Us! That's why I'm a bowling green truther. I demand that the media not release the reports they did not do on the attacks that did not occur. And I will not rest until they don't!"
Colbert's kicker: "We will have more on this story as it doesn't develop."
Later in the show, the host also slammed Trump's accusation that 3-5 million people illegally voted in the election. "That kind of accusation is called, and I don't want to get too technical here, bulls---," he blasted. "The largest investigation of voter impersonation ever found ust 31 incidents out of a billion ballots cast. By the way, 31 out a billion is also my current Yelp review for the Trump administration."
Over on "Late Night with Seth Meyers," the Bowling Green Massacre was also a subject of concention.
"Now, if you were embarrassed you didn't remember the Bowling Green Massacre, don't be. It's an incident that never happened," he joked. "Like the Titanic crashing into the Hindenburg, or when Lee Harvey Oswald was shot by a unicorn."
"This clip is a perfect example f the ways in which the bigger, more fantastical lies of the Trump administration overwhelm the smaller, more insidious lies," he continued. "Even when they're lying, they're distracting us from other, worse lies. That's like telling people you have a girlfriend in Canada when actually, you have a dead body in the basement."
Elsewhere in the show, Meyers spoofed Sean Spicer's press briefings, with the host sitting front and center grilling the press secretary with hard-hitting questions like, "How's the president's penis?"
