Former FBI Director James Comey got a warm welcome on Stephen Colbert’s show on Tuesday night, but as “The Late Show” host demonstrated, the audience did not always admire the former FBI director.

Colbert played a clip from his show the day that President Trump fired Comey. It may be one of the few times that Colbert’s audience took Trump’s side on an issue.

“FBI Director James Comey has just been fired by Donald Trump,” Colbert announced on May 9. The audience responded with raucous applause.

“Wow,” Colbert commented. “Huge, huge Donald Trump fans here tonight.”

After showing Comey the clip, the “Late Show” host said he was “shocked” the audience reacted that way.

“Have you made everyone in the world mad at you?” he asked Comey.

The former FBI director called it a “hangover” from the Clinton email investigation.
