In particular, they latched on to Comey's discussion about the Steele dossier alleging that Donald Trump spent time watching Russian prostitutes urinate on each other while in Moscow. It's a salacious detail that has already made the rounds, but it was the fun of watching a career law enforcement agent talk about it with that classic dour cop expression that Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel, James Corden and Trevor Noah couldn't resist.
At one point, Comey said that Trump asked him, "Do I look like a guy who needs hookers?" All but one of the late-night hosts quickly came to the same answer on that question.
Comey's new book, "A Higher Loyalty," where he goes into all of the things he discussed on "20/20" and more, is in stores today, so this will surely not be our last chance to watch him talk about hookers peeing on each other ... though a part of us kind of wishes it was.
"Jimmy Kimmel Live"
The ABC host was all smiles while reliving Comey's interview. "He says the president, in a meeting he asked point blank, 'Do I look like a guy who needs hookers?'" Kimmel said. "And of course the answer is, 'Yeah, you do. You look exactly like a guy who needs -- In fact, would you like us to get you some hookers, Mr. President?'"
"It's interesting that she would lash out at the former director of the FBI because this is what Sarah had to say about that very subject back in 2016," Kimmel said, throwing up an old tweet of hers that read, "When you're attacking FBI agents because you're under criminal investigation, you're losing." Kimmel wondered, "Are they losing are they just tired of all the winning? It's hard to tell."
Corden also had an answer to the question of whether or not Trump looks like a guy who needs hookers. "Yes, Mr. President, you look exactly like the kind of guy who needs hookers. The reason hookers get into business is rich guys who look like you. The J in Donald J. Trump actually stands for John."
At another point, he figured he should give credit where it's due for how well Comey's book is likely to sell. "Before the interview, Trump got on Twitter yesterday morning and called Comey a liar and attacked his reputation," Corden pointed out. "So congratulations to Donald Trump for sending Comey's book straight to number one."
Another talking point that got Corden's attention was when Comey said that he believes the president is mentally fit to be president -- even calling him above average in intelligence -- but not morally fit. "Of course he's morally unfit," Corden said. "Donald Trump is morally unfit to manage an Outback Steakhouse."
He went on to add, "What Comey's saying is actually pretty nice. He's saying, 'I don't think he has brain damage. I just think he's a terrible person.'"
The Comedy Central star was the only late-night host who gave Donald Trump some credit. He first played back the segment of the "20/20" interview where James Comey said, "I did not go into the business about people peeing on each other and he interrupted and started talking about it like, 'Do I look like a guy who needs hookers?' I didn't answer that and I just moved on."
Well, nobody in late night moved on, but Noah had a different taken than his comedic brethren. "You don't look like a guy who needs hookers. You look like a guy who chooses hookers. Totally different."
He couldn't resist poking fun at the melancholy picture painted about his final moments after getting fired where Comey described drinking red wine from a paper coffee cup in the FBI plane as he looked out over D.C.
"Flying home in that private jet after being fired and the only thing that Comey could think about was how much he loves this country," Noah said. "You realize that combination of boring and emotion is something you usually only find in a Drake song."
Noah then busted out some Drake-like lyrics of his own: "Sipping on this wine, country on my mind, thinking 'bout the time when the president was lyin'."
The CBS star was thoroughly prepped for this interview, having read the book in preparation for his own Comey interview tonight. He absolutely loved the cattiness Comey showed in critiquing Trump's hair and tie length.
"I don't know what he's doing next but for his next job he should go from Justice Department to judge on RuPaul's Drag Race.," Colbert said. "I gotta say, you did work it, but the concealer wasn't working for me. Sashay away, okurrrrt!'"
When Comey was asked why he reopened the investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails eleven days before the election, he told Stephanopoulous, "I was operating in a world where Hillary Clinton was going to beat Donald Trump."
"I was operating in that world, too," Colbert lamented. "And I desperately want to go back to that world. Or any one. In fact, I've been crawling in the back of every wardrobe I can find."
He then gave a sneak preview of his own hard-hitting interview, which promises to feature hard-hitting questions like "What number am I thinking of?" and "You have to choose one superpower: Is it invisibility or flight?" Okay, it was just a parody of ABC's overly-dramatic promo for their interview, but Colbert managed to make it even more dramatic-er. Watch that below.
