During the much anticipated testimony in Congress last week by former FBI Director James Comey, Donald Trump and his team have done their best to deny any wrongdoing and attempt to turn the tables. After Donald Jr. went on a tweetstorm defending his father, he also appeared to make questionable remarks during a recent interview on Fox News.

Colbert on Junior

The biggest issue facing Donald Trump and the White House over the last six months since the inauguration has been surrounding Russia.

While the former host of "The Apprentice" has faced various issues related to his controversial policy proposals and questionable rhetoric, no issue has been more of a thorn in the side of the administration like the scandal involving the Kremlin. The latest chapter in the ongoing drama has involved James Comey, who was fired just last month as director of the FBI by the president. Trump's decision came under fire due to the fact that Comey was leading the investigation into Russia, which included looking into whether or not the country had been in collusion with the president's campaign.

After Comey testified in Congress last week, further questions were raised about Trump's handling of his termination. In defense of the president, his son, Donald Jr., took to Twitter to smear Comey, before later appearing on Fox News. As seen during the June 12 edition of "The Late Show" on CBS, host Stephen Colbert decided to have a little fun with the matter at hand.

As part of his opening monologue on Monday night, Stephen Colbert directed his attention on Donald Jr. for contradicting his father's initial reaction to James Comey's testimony.

"Name calling is a long-time Trump tactic," Colbert said, before listing some of the president's more popular nicknames for his political opponents. "So, Comey's a 'liar' and a 'coward' because Trump never said 'I hope you let (Michael) Flynn go," Colbert went on to sarcastically say.

At this point, Stephen Colbert played a video clip of the younger Trump during his recent interview with Fox News host Judge Jeannie Pirro.

"When he tells you to do something, guess what, there's no ambiguity in it," Donald Jr. said. "There's no, 'hey, I'm hoping.' You and I are friends, 'hey I hope this happens, but you've got to do your job,'" Donald Jr. said, before adding, "That's what he told Comey."

"He just completely just contradicted what Donald Trump just said," Stephen Colbert said of Donald Jr., before noting, "Usually Donald Trump has to do that." Colbert continued his mockery of the commander in chief, going on to highlight the latest story where he crashed a wedding at his own golf club.

Moving forward

While Stephen Colbert and other high-profiled critics of the president continue to make him the butt of a joke, the White House has more serious issues to the worry about. As the pressure mounts on Trump to explain the allegations against him, it appears his family is not helping matters.
