What is it good for?
The late-night hosts seriously discussed Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
Stephen Colbert called it “a dark day”.
“Over the past five years, we have seen democracy repeatedly destroyed, catastrophically like never before, a global pandemic,” Colbert said. “This morning, Vladimir Putin looked at all of that and said, ‘Take my vodka’.”
James Corden foresaw any attempt at jokes at the beginning of his show and instead opted for a sad monologue.
“But today, if you’re thinking about the news, there’s really only one news story, and that news is dark. That a war has begun, a sovereign country has been invaded, and today, and tonight, and now as I sit here, I can’t – all I can think is Innocent men, women and children in Ukraine are terrified for their lives and I don’t know how to handle it. Like, I don’t even know how to talk about this with my kids, let alone start telling you about it on television. And it’s weird, you know, like just because I’m wearing a suit and I’m sitting behind this table, it really doesn’t make any sense. I am hardly qualified to speak of these events. I’m not. And I don’t really want to joke about any other trivial news stories we found today, because I can’t shake the feeling of utter horror of all this, and people how scared the Ukrainian people must feel today; How scared people in Eastern Europe must be feeling today. And I’m sure I can’t understand that this is going to happen in 2022 and the divisions of this are huge, and we shouldn’t be under any illusions about the dire and sad situation in Ukraine. So I don’t know what to say other than our thoughts to each Ukrainian tonight.”– JAMES CORDEN
“Amid all these horrors, it’s important that we keep our eyes on the crazy fascist who’s no wonder,” Colbert said, referring to former president Donald Trump, who has doubled down on support. his support for Putin.
“You know, it’s hard to do a comedy show when the war is going on, but here we are, more than 6,000 miles away, women and children fleeing Ukraine. Men between the ages of 18 and 60 were asked to stay and fight as Russian forces continued their gratuitous assault – an attack that was received here in the United States, like, I don’t remember any something like this, where some of us seem fine with it. You know, normally we’d get together in a situation like this. We’ll unite, but that’s before the big divider cuts us in half. ” – JIMMY KIMMEL
“Russian President Vladimir Putin last night declared war against Ukraine, and this is great: Trump offered to host the party afterwards.” – TABLEWARE
“As you know, Russia is currently at war with Ukraine. It’s a crazy world we live in. In fact, today President Biden asked the CDC to find a new variant just to ease the mood. ” – JIMMY FALLON
“Yes, Russian President Vladimir Putin has launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine. I think Putin has lost his mind. Even Kim Jong-un said, “You don’t really have to do it.” – JIMMY FALLON
“Yes, World War III, a global pandemic, the queen has Covid, inflation rises. Billy Joel worked on a remix of ‘We Didn’t Start the Fire.’ – JIMMY FALLON
“Listen, I don’t know what will happen, but one thing is for sure: Putin should fire those peacekeepers. You’ve got a job!” – STEPHEN COLBERT
“This was the largest land war in Europe since World War II, and the whole world was shocked. That’s why Wordle today is “Aaaah!” – STEPHEN COLBERT

On “The Tonight Show,” Jimmy Fallon, Questlove, and Higgins tried to guess if an audience member was hiding a mustache under his mask.
