He thinks the media need to get over President Trump.
An unexpected surprise came on 'The Late Show with Stephen Colbert' this week in the form of Jon Stewart, who crashed the show in a bid to deliver a stern message to the mainstream media regarding their apparent 'break up' with President Donald Trump.
Jon Stewart shares his thoughts on the media's 'break up' with Donald Trump
As Stephen Colbert was lamenting the foregoing of the first amendment by Donald Trump at the White House's recent press briefing in regards to the President banning a series of news outlets including CNN, LA Times, New York Times, Politico and BuzzFeed, Jon Stewart appeared from under his table to put his two cents in.
Let's hope the ratings get a boost.
Stephen Colbert is set to host the 69th annual Primetime Emmy Awards this year at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, having been praised for his 'fearless passion' when it comes to live broadcasts. And it seems he isn't going to be holding back with the presidency jokes either.

This will mark a first for 'The Late Show' host, who has previously hosted events such as the 39th Annual Kennedy Center Honors.

There were also video messages from a couple of former presidential candidates, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and Republican Senator John McCain.

So what’s Stephen Colbert been up to since leaving is hugely successful Comedy Central series in December? Growing a beard of course!

Yes that is Stephen Colbert
Well actually, Colbert’s next TV gig isn't what you think, as his 'Late Show' hosting duties don't start until September when he takes over from David Letterman. Instead, first on the agenda for Colbert is a guest appearance on Fox’s ‘The Mindy Project’ as, what appears to be, a man of the cloth.

It's not goodbye, just see you later.
Rest in peace, The Colbert Report. Stephen Colbert’s pretend conservative pundit was so close to the real thing that at times we tended to forget it was all satire. Twitter certainly seemed to forget pretty often. But after almost ten years, the joke is almost over.
Will we finally see the real face of Stephen Colbert?
Colbert will host his final show on Comedy Central, before taking over The Late Show from David Letterman. It was a good run, a character that started a life of its own, after being modelled on a real, but equally outrageous public figure – Fox’s Bill O’Reilly. In fact, O’Reilly was keenly aware that the joke was on him – and he did NOT appreciated. The Fox News Channel icon once joked that the next book in his Killing series would be Killing Colbert. He is yet to fulfil that threat, though, while Colbert is steadily moving up.
