Two of the biggest political stories in recent days has been the ongoing departures in the White House, and Vladimir Putin's controversial re-election win in Russia. In response, comedian and host of "The Late Show" Stephen Colbert decided to say a few words about each issue.

Colbert on Trump, Putin

During Donald Trump's campaign for president, he vowed to hire the "best people" to work in his administration if he was able to win the election.

Fast forward to present day and the former host of "The Apprentice" has been in office for over a year and has supervised over the exit of various members of his team, with the most recent being the resignation of top economic adviser Gary Cohn, and White House Communications Director Hope Hicks. Following their resignations, Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired Andrew McCabe, the Deputy Director of the FBI, over the weekend and doing so just days before he was set to retire. In addition, Vladimir Putin, who's been linked to Trump due to the Kremlin's hacking of 2016 election, won his re-election, though the outcome has been speculated to have been rigged.

With the Russian investigation heating up and Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin both in the news on a daily basis, "The Late Show" host Stephen Colbert took to Twitter to poke fun at the two world leaders.

"Congrats to Vladimir Putin on winning his first election since November 8, 2016!" Colbert tweeted in reference to Russia's hacking of the election in favor of Trump.

Just minutes later and Stephen Colbert turned his attention to Donald Trump over the latest exits from his administration.

"Baseball season is only ten days away, which means we’ll soon be able to measure the longevity of Trump’s cabinet members in innings," Colbert wrote. Colbert, like many others, has used Trump as a punch line since his campaign, with the issue of Russian hacking being one of the hottest topics to dominate the news cycle in Washington.

Moving forward

While Stephen Colbert and others have taken time to mock Donald Trump over the current state of his White House and the ongoing drama involved with the Russian investigation, the president doesn't look to be changing his tune anytime soon. As expected, Trump and his team have denied any wrongdoing in regards to their alleged link to Vladimir Putin and Russia, with the White House repeating the phrase "no collusion" on an almost routine basis as their first line of defense against the allegations.
