On Monday’s “The Late Show,” Stephen Colbert caught up on something he didn’t have time to deal with last week — Donald Trump’s weird, nearly hour-long phone chat with Fox & Friends on Friday morning.

During the call, Trump repeated several debunked conspiracy theories and falsehoods, including the false claim that that the cybersecurity company CrowdStrike is owned by “a very wealthy Ukrainian” (which it absolutely is not).

“For Pete’s sake, it’s 8:00 in the morning. At least let us get a cup of coffee before you start passing out the crazy pills,” Colbert said before switching to his Trump impression.

“Look, wake up, wake up. Look, why were there chemtrails on the grassy knoll? Did vaccines cause Jeffrey Epstein? And how did we really, how did we go to the moon when once a month the moon’s not even there?” he joked.

Colbert then returned to the subject of CrowdStrike, which he noted “is an American company not owned by Ukrainians, and they’re so trustworthy that one of their big customers is the Republican party.” Colbert also noted that during the wild phone call, even “Fox & Friends” host Steve Doocy expressed skepticism at some of Trump’s claims.

“I gotta say, getting fact-checked by ‘Fox & Friends’ is like the Incredible Hulk telling you he doesn’t like you when you’re angry,” Colbert said.
