JIMMY Fallon has launched a scathing return attack on Donald Trump, mocking the President for picking fights on social media.

In the cold open to Colbert's The Late Show and Fallon's The Tonight Show, the two hosts discussed the president's comments with each other in a video chat.

The three late-night hosts got together after Trump went after Colbert, Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel in a speech at a rally for South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster on Monday, suggesting they lack talent.

"Really? That doesn't sound like him", Colbert said.

The sketch was used as part of The Late Show and The Tonight Show's cold open. Colbert thought POTUS could only be talking about one man: Conan O'Brien who was in total disbelief that "the real estate guy who sells steaks" made it to the White House.

'Honestly are these people amusing?

"Hey, Mr. President, I will not stand here and let you talk that way about James Corden", Colbert declared, referencing the British late-night host who also has a show on CBS.

Renee Mutchnik, a spokeswoman for the Sun , said "we believe there are some injuries" but she did not immediately know how many. Altomare said the department would be releasing a redacted version of that incident report sometime Friday.

"Oh. I'm busy having no talent", added Colbert.

Trump had disparaged Colbert, Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel during his speech Monday at a SC rally for Gov. Henry McMaster.

"Mostly whimpering", Fallon said, eyes downcast as he referenced the president's recent tweet lambasting him for his apology. "He's president? Wow. How's he doing?"

"Not so good", Colbert replied.

"Oh. Well guys, give him time!". "And remember, please be civil". We rather like this new era where there isn't necessarily any of the contention that there once was within the late-night community.

"Yeah, where do you want to eat?" The location: The Red Hen, the Lexington, Virginia, restaurant whose owner asked Trump press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to leave because the kitchen and wait staff refused to serve her.

Trump then referred to Colbert, saying: "Johnny Carson was talented".
