On Tuesday, Attorney General William P. Barr shot down President Trump’s assertion of widespread voter fraud, acknowledging that the Justice Department had uncovered no wrongdoing “on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”

“Fraud on a scale — also known as the president’s annual physical,” Stephen Colbert joked on “The Late Show.”https://www.youtube.com/embed/AnC9XKhtE9k

“It’s so weird that they didn’t find evidence of the very thing they never backed up with any evidence.” — JAMES CORDEN

“Oh, man. If Bill Barr had a neck, Trump would totally be wringing it right now.” — JIMMY KIMMEL

“He will be missed.” — STEPHEN COLBERT

“William Barr has been one of Trump’s most obnoxiously loyal allies throughout — emphasis on ‘lies’ in allies. This would be like if Thelma turned on Louise.” — JIMMY KIMMEL

“When Trump heard about William Barr, he was so mad, he ordered William Barr to prosecute William Barr.” — JIMMY FALLON

“At this point, Trump’s lost ‘Fox News,’ Republican senators and now Bill Barr. Today he was like, ‘If Randy Quaid jumps ship, it’s over.’” — JIMMY FALLON

“That is cold. Sending the president of the United States to voice mail like he’s spam? Which he is, but still.” — TREVOR NOAH, on Gov. Doug Ducey ignoring Trump’s call as he was certifying Arizona’s election on Monday

“The president called him while he was signing, and the government sent him straight to voice mail. That is a guy who’s picked up that phone once too often: ‘Yes, Mr. President, you told me. Massive dumps. Right. Listen, I gotta go. Arizona is going through a tunnel. Chhhhhhh.” — STEPHEN COLBERT

“You know ‘Fox & Friends’ were watching this like, ‘Oh, that’s a good trick — we can just not answer the phone. We’ve gotta try that.’” — TREVOR NOAH

“I believe the young people call that ‘ghosting.’” — JIMMY KIMMEL

“Trump just got friend-izona-ed.” — JAMES CORDEN

“You know what makes this move especially gangster is that he knew Trump was watching him on live TV. We’ve all had the moment where we think somebody’s ignoring our call or our text, but to actually see it — to see him look at his phone, see your name and then put it away? Ooh, that had to hurt.” — TREVOR NOAH

“You’ve gotta admit it’s a savage move — savage move from anyone who still uses custom ring tones.” — JAMES CORDEN
