Stephen Colbert on Wednesday addressed a scathing New York Times op-ed written by an anonymous senior Trump administration official in criticism of President Trump.

The article, titled "I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration," criticized Trump for his "amorality," and suggested that a network of officials had "vowed to thwart parts" of Trump's "agenda and his worst inclinations."

Colbert, who said that the article dropped about an hour before the "Late Show's" taping on Wednesday, joked briefly about the piece in his monologue.

"Mr. President, they traced the resistance, and it's coming from inside the White House! Get out of there! And, and stay out of there!" Colbert said.

The "Late Show" host went on to discuss the article with one of his guests, former Secretary of State John Kerry.

"It's foreboding in so many ways. You have somebody stealing something off the president's desk in order to prevent him making a decision," Kerry said, referencing an admission in the article. "What it means, Steve, is that we don't really have a president. We have a president who's there, but he is not capable of doing the job or living up to the responsibilities."

"The Daily Show" host Trevor Noah also addressed the NYT op-ed in his show on Wednesday night.

Noah focused on a segment of the article that said members of Trump's cabinet had debated, but ultimately opted against, invoking the 25th amendment to remove Trump from office.

"The 25th amendment is there so you can use it. It's like there's a sign that says 'in case of emergency, break glass,' but these guys are like, 'I mean we could break the glass, but then there'd be glass everywhere. Maybe we can just try and steer the fire in a different direction,'" Noah joked.
