There's no doubt Stephen Colbert is not a fan of Donald Trump's. He's made that very clear with many of his monologues.

On Tuesday, he progressed to telling the President to "Shut up!" in reaction to the threat he passed to North Korea.

Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un have been trading unpleasantries for quite some time, each time getting more and more amped up.

On Tuesday, despite being on vacation at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, he took time up to threaten the North Korean capital to cease and desist with their end of the threats.

This came after U.S. intelligence has claimed that North Korea has a miniaturized nuclear warhead, worrying many.

"North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen," Trump dictated. "[Kim Jong Un] has been very threatening beyond a normal state. They will be met with fire, fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never seen before."

Of course, while Trump is threatening fire, he's also playing with fire by launching threats at Kim Jong Un. After his threats, North Korea announced they were "examining the operational plan" to launch strikes against areas around the U.S. territory of Guam which includes the Andersen Air Force Base.

This has many people worried that we're entering into a sure war with North Korea, a country that our intelligence has said has a nuclear warhead.

On The Late Show on Tuesday night, Colbert said, "I don't want to be alarmist, but we're all gonna die."

He went on to mention the President's threat to North Korea and how it led the country to threatening Guam.

"Shut up!" he demanded of Trump. "You'll get us all killed, and I just started The Handmaid's Tale."
