On Friday, CBS’s Stephen Colbert mocked President Donald Trump’s trip to Paris.
Colbert said that he was going only because he wanted to see a big military parade after his own planned parade was canceled.
Trump is going to Paris to celebrate the 100th-anniversary of the end World War I.
“In honor of America’s service in the Great War, we are sending our greatest doughboy,” he joked.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) was accused on Wednesday of interrupting former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates because she is a woman.
During a hearing about the investigation into Russia's interference in the U.S. elections, Graham grilled Yates over the decision to prosecute former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, who pled guilty to lying about conversations with Russians.
As Yates tried to answer Graham's questions, he repeatedly interrupted. Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) reacted by admonishing Graham.
"Let her answer the question," Leahy said. "Just because it’s a woman testifying doesn’t mean she needs to be cut off."
