Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel, and Jimmy Fallon see impeachment angst in Trump's craving for crowds

"While the Democrats debated their debate in Iowa, [President] Trump tried to steal the limelight by holding a 'Keep America Great' rally up in Milwaukee," Stephen Colbert said on Tuesday's Late Show. Trump brought up Tom Cruise while bragging about the U.S. military strike that killed Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani, "rambled on about stuff he liked," and finally "launched into his favorite topic: household appliances."

And "Trump wasn't afraid to talk about the hot-button issues, like dishwasher efficiency," Colbert said, showing the president's now-routine dishwasher rant. "First of all, we cannot let this guy become president," he deadpanned. "Second, nobody does that, it's all made up. And third, I'm gonna say we should not take dishwasher advice from a man who eats the majority of his meals out of a cardboard bucket."

At Tuesday's Democratic debate, "everyone was focused on Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren after Bernie reportedly told her a woman can't win the presidency," Jimmy Fallon said at The Tonight Show. "Most Americans disagreed while every Oscar voter sided with Bernie." President Trump was at the college football national championship game in New Orleans Monday night, "and this is cool, the referees actually used his tie to measure first downs," Fallon joked. He also revealed what Trump and actor Vince Vaughn (might have) talked about at the game.

Yes, "the president and first lady were at the game," and "Trump was thrilled with himself," retweeting "not one but two videos of the crowd cheering for him," Jimmy Kimmel said at Kimmel Live. "The president loves to get love from a crowd, which — you know, I actually have an idea that could solve a lot. I say we move the Oval Office to the Superdome. Trump can sit at a desk right on the 50-yard line and get cheered by people all day. He'd be so happy, and maybe it would distract him from ruining the whole world."

Kimmel recounted how an enterprising man at a Trump rally last month "pulled a pretty good one on the president," getting Trump "to sign a copy of his own impeachment report." Trump's Senate impeachment trial will start as soon as next Tuesday, he added, running through some of the "damning new evidence" the House had just released from one of "Rudy Guiliani's Ukrainian dirt-diggers, Lev Parnas."
