President Trump tweeted on Wednesday morning to assure his supporters that he was not spending too much time watching TV — something that made Stephen Colbert a little uneasy.

“I gotta say, it’s not exactly comforting when the person in charge starts randomly assuring you that everything’s just fine. ‘Uh, this is your captain speaking.
