In his first live show back from the holidays, Colbert had lots of material to operate and rip, including this tweet from Trump about the current cold snap and global warming:
In the East, it could be the COLDEST New Year’s Eve on record. Perhaps we could use a little bit of that good old Global Warming that our Country, but not other countries, was going to pay TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS to protect against. Bundle up!

“See the logic here, because of Donald Trump’s cold right now, that’s evidence that the earth is not getting warmer,” said Colbert.
