“President Biden” hold a video conference with Vladimir Putin to warn him not to invade Ukraine,” Trevor Noah said on Tuesday Daily program. “And video chatting is a tricky way for both of these people to do diplomacy, I mean especially because even in person, Biden talks as if he has a poor connection.” He did so and joked that Putin might reset the White House servers to improve connectivity.

“Now, if you’re worried these rising tensions with Russia will lead to World War III with Russia, don’t be ridiculous,” Colbert said. “It will be World War III with China. We had a preview yesterday” with diplomatic boycott of the Winter Olympics in Beijing.

Is quit the National Assembly became the CEO of former President Donald Trump’s social media company, despite any related experience — except “milking the leather stuff,” Colbert said. “Now, often when a former president appoints a completely incompetent person to an important position, he has good reason: they are related to him. the only reason Nunes got this gig is because Jared, Don Jr., and Eric all turned it down.”
