On “The Late Show” Tuesday night, Stephen Colbert said he was bummed out that President Trump sounds like a bored entertainer just singing his greatest hits again.

Trump held a news conference Tuesday to discuss special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, and said there “was no collusion,” and “it was a hoax.”

“It’s just so sad when his heart’s just not in it, you know?” said Colbert. “He’s like an aging singer doing his sixteenth show of the week in Branson to a half-empty room.”

Colbert then launched into his impression of Trump rattling off expressions with an exhausted, hangdog look: “No collusion. Lock her up. Build the wall. Fake news.” He said  “MAGA,” but pronounced “Muh-gaaa.”

Colbert then took issue with Trump’s claim that no administration in U.S. history has accomplished as much as he has in the first two years.

“I just want to point out that on day 149 of George Washington’s presidency, they passed the Bill of Rights,” Colbert said. “And it’s taken [Trump] almost two years to violate all of them.”
