Late Night‘s Stephen Colbert has figured out why Donald Trump keeps repeating his “no collusion” refrain — because it’s a greeting of sorts.
“For over a year now, his catchphrase has been ‘no collusion,'” the host said in a clip from his Tuesday night segment before playing a supercut of the president repeating the term over the months.
“He uses it for every occasion,” Colbert continued. “It’s like his ‘aloha’ — it means both ‘hello’ and ‘I’m guilty.'”
The host went on to note that Trump and his legal team have apparently rebranded the ubiquitous phrase to “collusion is not a crime.”

WATCH: CNN displays the Constitution’s Emoluments Clause as Trump rambles about it being ‘phony’
Two days after intense pressure forced President Donald Trump to back down from his plan to host the 2020 G7 summit at his resort in Doral, Florida, the president dismissed the Constitution's anti-corruption clause—which his plan would have violated—as "phony."
"You people, with this phony Emoluments Clause," Trump told reporters at a White House press conference on Monday, responding to allegations that hosting the meeting of foreign leaders at his own property would be a conflict of interest.
