According to reports, President Donald Trump is looking to have a bigger role in the nation’s capital's annual Independence Day celebration. According to the Washington Post, Trump wants to address the crowds on the National Mall from the top of the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, prompting Late Show's Stephen Colbert to joke that it will kick off "a new American tradition: watching Trump struggle to climb the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.

Last Week Tonight's John Oliver joked about the quote, saying that Trump would say "we love this building, so little fire" about a building about to collapse from flames.
