On Friday, Comedian Stephen Colbert pointed out a humorous similarity between President Donald Trump and Richard Nixon.

As senators worked to avert a partial government shutdown, Trump complained on Twitter that he was missing his vacation to sign new bills.

Trump was scheduled to go to his Mar-a-Lago resort for 16 days over the holidays.

"Coincidentally Richard Nixon went to Mar-A-Lago for a month before he resigned from the presidency. Please history repeat yourself, we did our part by not learning from you," Colbert joked.

Even though Trump missed his flight to Florida, First Lady Melania Trump and her son still went.
