During Tuesday night’s edition of “The Late Show,” host Stephen Colbert indulged viewers with the latest revelations about Donald Trump as yet another book about the ex-president hits shelves.

Colbert noted that the book, “Confidence Man” by Maggie Haberman of The New York Times, reported that Trump nearly fired daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner via Twitter.

“That would be an awful way to find out they lost their jobs as…” Colbert struggled to figure out what they did or didn’t do to get fired.

“Handbag blonde face? Haunted scarecrow? His and hers towel racks? I don’t know what they did.”

Trump’s then-chief of staff, John Kelly, told Trump he would have to fire them in person.

“In the end, the ex-president did what he’d done his whole life: He avoided his children,” Colbert said.

“Haberman also reports that because of the ex-president’s tendency to just repeat whatever he had just heard, his aides started calling him ‘a sophisticated parrot,’” Colbert said before offering his own variation on the nickname, “a horny cockatoo.”
