Watching Colbert get visibly flustered at his audience's first reaction makes it worth watching. https://t.co/hMVKyQ3w5A

On the Late Show, Stephen Colbert broke the news to his audience that Donald Trump had fired FBI Director James Comey, and their reaction was not what he hoped for. Watch:

That backfired just a little.
The Colbert audience cheering wildly when they hear Comey was fired is pretty priceless. https://t.co/MOJTR2fznY

Seriously this is too funny. Colbert-bots still think of Comey as the bad guy so their first reaction was to cheer. https://t.co/lFlofUOlSk

Dems have gone back and forth on Comey so much even Colbert’s fans are unsure how they’re supposed to react on any given day.
COLBERT: Trump fired Comey
NY AUDIENCE: YEAAAAAAAAAAAH
COLBERT: No guys, this is bad. Here's some awful jokes to explain why.
AUDIENCE: Boo? https://t.co/5wqNWuUuWr

@colbertlateshow You actually chastised the crowd for giving the reaction you've trained into them for the past 6 months.

@colbertlateshow audience clearly didn't know how to react to the news in real time
