"To celebrate Thanksgiving, President Trump has returned to Mar-a-Lago, so I know what the White House staff is thankful for this year," Colbert joked. "Imagine a plump, overcooked turkey — waiting in line for Thanksgiving dinner.

"While Trump is down there, he may have some papers to sign because we have just learned that Donald Trump is shutting down his charitable foundation. So sad. They had almost reached their goal of helping anyone," Colbert added.

Over on "The Tonight Show," host Jimmy Fallon gave what he called a preview of Trump's Mar-a-Lago dinner menu.

"Trump is spending the holiday down at Mar-a-Lago, where they have a big buffet. It has gourmet stuffing, vegetables and turkey for the adults," Fallon said. "And then they have chicken fingers, grilled cheese and curly fries for the president."

On "Late Night," host Seth Meyers took a closer look at how Trump's aides are growing increasingly anxious about special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into the Trump team's ties to Russia.

"Every time Trump's aides talk about the Russia scandal, they seem to dig themselves in deeper and deeper. Just take Attorney General Jeff Sessions," Meyers said. "Their only defense is literally 'We were too incompetent to collude.'"
