Stephen Colbert said he wasn’t “telling tales out of school” when he says President Donald Trump is in “double trouble,” thanks to his controversial phone calls with Ukraine and Turkey.

Those and other phone calls have left some aides to the President “genuinely horrified,” Colbert said. “But they’re just telling us now? Like the signs say, “If you see something, say something – two years after we can do something about it!”
