Looks like professional troll Milo Yiannopoulos has gone too far, even for the Conservative Political Action Conference.

There's one thing we definitely agree with Donald Trump about: he sure knows how to make for great television!
So, it's no surprise that late night hosts re-wrote "yuge" chunks of their shows to cover the hour-plus long ordeal — in which POTUS attacked the press, avoided questions about Russia, bragged about the election, and came across like a damn fool.
Seth Meyers didn't have to try very hard to make Trump seem incompetent during Late Night's "A Closer Look" on Thursday, pointing out how the pseudo-politician already wants to start campaigning for re-election instead of actually governing the people.
Stephen Colbert was just as baffled on The Late Show, poking fun at President Tiny Hands for lying about the size of his electoral college win in the election (Barack Obama's was muchhhh bigger, Donny boy) and getting corrected by the press over his alternative fact spewing.
And, yes, even Jimmy Fallon got in on the fun on The Tonight Show, bringing out his Trump impression for a press conference-inspired cold open.
While Fallon's Trump is definitely a silly one, we don't think it measures up to the craziness of the real thing at this point!

A big congrats go out to Donald Trump's lackey Michael Flynn!
Late night hosts celebrated the former National Security Advisor's historic stint in the White House — because it was the shortest tenure EVER before Flynn resigned over lying about his sketchy phone calls with Russia.
On Tuesday's Late Night, Seth Meyers pointed out the irony of Flynn's scandal — in which he admitted to speaking with Russian diplomats about lifting U.S. sanctions before Trump was sworn in.
The real irony here is that Mr. Flynn was the one who called on Hillary Clinton to drop out of the election over those damn emails — and even chanted "lock her up"! SMH…
Stephen Colbert slammed the White House's response to the scandal on The Late Show, noting that Trump's administration was warned by the Justice Department of Flynn's illegal activity — but, of course, POTUS was too busy with his other presidential duties, like waging war against Nordstrom.
They also called out Trump's response in deflecting the blame to Washington leaks — when he's the one conducting meetings right in the middle of his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida. Yes, this is real life.
Ch-ch-check out both clips (below) to get your daily breakdown of the burning looney bin that is the White House.
We love when politically savvy late night hosts take on Donald Trump.
For instance, Seth Meyers and Stephen Colbert spent Monday night making fun of his asshole handshake move, his first (of likely many) ignominious team member resignation, and his obsession with imaginary voter fraud.
But it's nice when they have a new subject to sink their comedic teeth into.
Enter new Senior Advisor/meat puppet Stephen Miller.
But the latest team Trump isn't nearly so good at shoveling shit as Kellyanne Conway, which makes it more fun to watch as he quickly gets in over his head.
Ch-ch-check out the terrific thrashings (below)!
On Tuesday, the president's Secretary of Education pick Betsy DeVos was confirmed by the Senate — and she BARELY made the cut!
Mike Pence cast the deciding vote for her nomination in a historic tie-breaker. It was the first time in history the Vice President was called to break a tie on a cabinet nomination.
And for good reason…
The Amway heiress has been blasted by teachers' unions and public education advocates alike for her lack of teaching experience, her dismantling of the Michigan school system with disastrous results, and her belief that public schools should have guns to fight off grizzly bear attacks.
Needless to say, critics had a lot to say about DeVos' appointment — celebs like Stephen Colbert, Seth MacFarlane, Piers Morgan, and Fifth Harmony's Lauren Jauregui had some particularly scathing words for the new Education Secretary, Pence, and the cowardly Republican Congress!

More on this fake news story as it doesn't develop…
Donald Trump kicked off yet another week by attacking the media with outrageous accusations — which means more late night segments were dedicated to debunking the president's
alternative false facts.
Seth Meyers and Stephen Colbert reamed President Pinocchio (you know, because he lies and he's a puppet!) on Monday night, ripping on his claims that the "very, very dishonest press" isn't reporting on major terrorist attacks.
Both hosts compared POTUS's comments to his adviser Kellyanne Conway's remarks about the Bowling Green Massacre, a horrible tragedy that never happened.
Colbert gave Conway the benefit of the doub on The Late Show, joking that he was a "Bowling Green truther" and promised to have more on the story as it doesn't develop.
Meyers dissected these latest claims a bit more on Late Night's "A Closer Look." The SNL alum noted Trump administration's ridiculous lies were made to distract us "from other, worse lies" — like when Conway falsely claimed that Barack Obama also banned Iraqi refugees to justify Trump's awful travel ban.

In his first late night stint since the inauguration, the former Daily Show host came out dressed as the fashionable POTUS — donning a six-foot long red tie and an actual dead animal clinging to his head.
After some back-to-school banter between the longtime collaborators, Stewart read off three executive orders he claimed Trump was preparing to sign: like tricking Mexico into buying off China's Great Wall and changing the new official U.S. language to "bullshit."
Stewart got a bit more serious with his third faux-executive order, begging to citizens to band together to keep the orange POTUS from turning into a Star Wars villain. We think it's a little too late for that…
