Stephen Colbert Agrees With Trump About Something, Calls CNN 'Fake News'

Watch: Sean Penn lights up cigarette during 'laid back' appearance on Late Show with Stephen Colbert

The Late Show With Stephen Colbert airs weeknights at 11:35 on CBS.

While discussing the popular "Roseanne" revival, which returned this week after a 20-year hiatus, Colbert stopped to admire the sitcom's stellar reviews - just hours after Trump announced that he called Roseanne Barr, who plays unabashed Trump supporter Roseanne Conner in the show, to congratulate her on the success.

"Fake news. I take everything back!"

"Fake news!" Colbert exclaimed.

The host then explained that CNN had published an article about Dana Carvey's impression of John Bolton on the previous night's show, but made a grave mistake in its reporting. At one point, he revealed that he actually had a conversation with Trump on the day he was sacked, though the president made no mention of his decision to him. "Colbert asked. "'I would never cheat on my wife-with her.

Turkey targets Iraq's Sinjar region after Afrin operation
Sinjar province is home to the Yazidi community, which is set to face more violence if Turkey begins its operation. Erdogan also said Turkey's would do "what is necessary" if the Iraqi operation in Sinjar failed.

It's unclear if the network ran the story under the headline Colbert claimed. We tape during the day time.

Colbert bragged that he doesn't actually have a Facebook account of his own - "You know nothing about me, Suckerberg!" - but noted that some of his staff have pointed out to him some of the sneakier things Facebook does with user information.

CNN issued a correction on their website Friday.

"Still, it's nice to be recognized, so thank you, MSNBC", he deadpanned. The host took a jab at the president for referring to David Schulkin, who recently got sacked by the mogul himself, as "Jim". After showing a clip of the president speculating that he was even better at construction than being president, the comedian said, "Don't sell yourself short, sir: You suck at both".
