It was a Twitter rant laden weekend again for President Donald Trump. His attacks ranged from prominent Republicans to Democrats and the media. One such Tweet prompted The Late Show host Stephen Colbert to invite a former colleague to join him Monday night.

The move proved the adage 'be careful what you wish for'.

President Trump asserted that late-night TV hosts are all one-sided and anti-Trump on Saturday. He accused them of colluding with Democrats.

“First of all, ‘unfunny’ in quotes? Which means you think we’re funny?” Stephen Colbert asked in response to the Tweet. “In which case I want to say, ‘thank you?’” he added, making air quotes with his fingers.

For Trump’s demand for “equal time,” Colbert said he invited another late-night host, trained in the art of “unfunny,” to “offer balance to what I say about the president.”

Colbert asked Jon Stewart to say only complimentary things about the president. Stewart was supposed to provide balance for Colbert's commentary on Trump. The former Daily Show host started out tame.

He later forced himself to say, “Given the choice between having hot lava poured into my pee hole and Donald Trump being president… I choose laa– the latter.”

Then Stewart unleashed an expletive filled attack against America’s “sociopath” commander-in-chief. Footage of the president surrounded by military leaders warning that their photo op was “the calm before the storm” set Stewart off. When pressed by reporters to elaborate, Trump responded, “You’ll find out.”

Former Vice President and current 2020 Presidential candidate Joe Biden erupted at a man during an Iowa town hall who accused him of actively working to get his son Hunter a board position on the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings. Biden called the man a "damn liar" before challenging him to pushups.

Republicans seized on the moment as an opportunity to discredit Biden as a candidate, but Fox and Friends cohost Ainsley Earhardt's reaction may be the most deluded yet.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has repeatedly made clear that, after President Donald Trump solicited Ukrainian leaders to announce investigations that personally benefitted him, the decision to launch impeachment proceedings wasn't a political maneuver, but a constitutional mandate.

The move came after years of Trump's supporters, as well as some critics, insisted that impeachment would be political suicide for the Democrats.

Since shortly after the inquiry's announcement in September, support for impeachment outweighed its oppositon as more revelations surfaced of Trump's dealings with Ukraine, but his 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale attempted to show that Pelosi's move to impeach would lose Democrats their House majority.

The House Judiciary Committee, in its public impeachment hearing against President Donald Trump on Wednesday, consulted four constitutional scholars for greater insight to the legal implications of the President's Ukraine scandal—and whether they merit impeachment.

Three witnesses, called by Democrats, each made compelling arguments for the articles of impeachment with which Trump could be charged.

George Washington University professor Jonathan Turley—invited by Republicans—was the lone dissenter.
