Everyone is having fun with words at the moment.

After U.S. President Donald Trump’s senior adviser Kellyanne Conway used flashcards to explain the media furore over Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with a Russian lawyer, late night talk show host Stephen Colbert thought he’d give it a try.

Referring to Conway’s appearance on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show—and calling Conway “Satan’s trophy wife”—Colbert took a shot at explaining the scandal around the president’s son.

“Trump Jr. tried to articulate but that turned out to incriminate,” said Colbert, using his own flashcards. “It’s something even an idiot would anticipate, and now he’s going to be an inmate.”

Trump Jr. met with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya on June 9,  2016, at Trump Tower in New York. Trump’s son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner and then-campaign chief Paul Manafort were also present.

The president’s son released an email chain related to the meeting on Tuesday, which showed that publicist Rob Goldstone had told Trump Jr. that the Russian lawyer had damaging information about his father’s campaign opponent, Hillary Clinton.

“If it’s what you say I love it,” Trump Jr. responded to the emails.

The revelations have added fuel to the speculation surrounding possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. Special counsel Robert Mueller and both houses of Congress are both currently conducting investigations into alleged ties between Trump’s associates and the Kremlin.

The president himself defended his son at a press conference in Paris on Thursday, where he met with French President Emmanuel Macron. “My son is a wonderful young man,” said President Trump. “He took a meeting with a Russian lawyer, not a government lawyer but a Russian lawyer.”

“From a practical standpoint, most people would have taken that meeting. It’s called opposition research, or even research into your opponent,” said President Trump.
