Like many of us, “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert was captivated by former Donald Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg’s multiple TV appearances Monday—and his decision to defy a grand jury subpoena from special counsel Robert Mueller.

Noting Nuneberg’s seemingly unending string of interviews, Colbert joked the onetime Trump aide also “called into HGTV to incriminate himself on ‘Flip or Flop.’”

“I’m pretty sure once Mueller gets through with him, it’s gonna be flip,” Colbert opined.

The host later turned to Nunberg's claim that Trump is “an idiot,” paying particular attention to Nurnberg’s request for CNN’s Jake Tapper to “explain” the president’s decision to fire former FBI Director James Comey and invite the Russian ambassador to the Oval Office.

“I can explain it!” Colbert offered. “He was colluding with the Russians. And he said it out loud because Donald Trump is an idiot.”

Colbert later ripped Nunberg for challenging Mueller to arrest him.

“You know Mueller can arrest you, right?” Colbert asked. “That’s like saying ‘eat me’ to Hannibal Lecter.”
