If you’ve been living under a rock for nine months, you may be surprised to find out that there are some rifts in the White House. The rest of us have come to expect the most recent news out the Trump administration.

On Wednesday’s Late Show, Stephen Colbert reacted to news that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called the president a “f**king moron.”

“Hold on there, Rex,” Colbert said. “Hold on there, Tillerson. Nobody calls our president a moron except me.”

“And other world leaders. And, ultimately, history.”

Apparently, Tillerson said “such a vicious, accurate thing about his boss” because of Trump’ speech at the Boy Scout Jamboree this summer. Tillerson once lead the Boy Scouts of America and didn’t take too kindly to the president soiling the precious Jamboree.

When reporters asked the Secretary of State to confirm or deny whether or not he said it, Tillerson declined to comment. “Yeah, he totally said it,” remarked Colbert.

The Late Show also suggested a few other things Rex Tillerson definitely did not call the president.
