"I hear you" was among the phrases President Trump jotted down on a notecard that he held during a listening session with school shooting survivors on Wednesday.

Afterwards, late-night hosts spoofed the president's notes on Thursday night's shows, with Stephen Colbert and Trevor Noah both devoting jokes to the comment.

"It was clearly a test of Trump's ability to listen because he brought along a cheat sheet that included, 'I hear you,' " Colbert said. "I mean, people have cheat sheets, but it is a little unsettling that the president needs a cheat sheet for reacting to other people's emotions."

"I can imagine the notes he used when he left his wives," he continued. "'Hello, 'wife's name,' it's over, you were a nine and now you're a high seven, thank you and I hear you but I don't want to see you.'"

Colbert added, "Listening is not enough. Trump knows you have to take action and he's got a lot of ideas."

Take, for instance, his suggestion for how to deal with the number of guns: He wants more of them.

"I'm sure it's in the school budget: 'Sorry, your school can't afford enough copies of To Kill a Mockingbird but good news: We're giving something that can kill any bird!"
