On Friday night, Stephen Colbert started off his show with a sketch roasting White House press secretary Sarah Sanders for having the same reaction to every single news story.

The anchor then notes Trump’s name is “right in there!”
Finally, the sketch cuts to a future broadcast from April 2019, where he announces the breaking news that the White House has been subpoenaed for collusion.
“I’m talking about the actual building,” he stresses.
