On Global’s “The Late Show” Tuesday, host Stephen Colbert took on the news that Trump had called for the firing of deputy national security adviser Mira Ricardel after recent clashes over her trip to Africa.

“I assume Melania’s doing it with her traditional goodbye gift: a jacket that says, ‘U don’t really work here anymore do u?'” Colbert joked.

Jimmy Kimmel also had fun with the news on his show Tuesday night.

“Apparently ‘be best’ is now ‘be gone’,” Kimmel joked.

Noting reports that Trump and Ricardel had clashed over seating arrangements on her flight to Africa, Kimmel joked, “Ricardel wanted Melania to sit in the middle section of the plane, and Melania wanted to jump out of it.”
