Stephen Colbert actually had something nice to say about Donald Trump in wake of Wednesday's congressional baseball practice shooting, which left Republican Congressman Steve Scalise wounded.
"I just want to say thank you to the congressional leadership and to the President for responding to this act of terror in a way that gives us hope that whatever our differences, we will always be the United States of America,” Colbert said in his "Late Show" monologue (above) hours after the attack in Alexandria, Virginia. “Thank you for that."
"Once again, we're all shocked in mind and soul by a mass shooting, this time targeting, apparently, Republican congressmen, and I pray to God that everyone pulls through,” Colbert said. “Violence of any kind is never justified and is the last refuge of the incompetent. Thankfully, none of the members or their staff or police were killed today."
Much like Trevor Noah did on "The Daily Show," Colbert also singled out clips of Nancy Pelosi and Paul Ryan making bipartisan comments about the tragedy.
Noah actually appeared as a guest on the CBS late-night show, too, on Wednesday.
"It was great to see people from both sides seeing this and uniting under the banner of human, and American, before anything else,” Noah told Colbert during their interview (below). "That's one of the things that we're seeing less and less of in society today, it feels like."
Noah added that Democrats and Republicans reminding the American people that they're actually friends is something that's "lacking" in American politics. He said Congress and the POTUS could benefit from letting people know, "We can fight, you can fight, but don't forget at your core, you are Americans."
