During his "First Drafts" segment on Thursday's 'Late Show,' the host poked fun at cards people send out to celebrate the season, showing they "went to the drugstore," and even managed to get in a dig at the president-elect.

Stephen Colbert shared some first drafts of holiday greeting cards on the Late Show Thursday night. 

The host began the segment by admitting he loves holiday cards. "They're a wonderful way to tell your loved ones, 'I went to the drugstore' ," Colbert quipped. 

Colbert didn't handle the segment on his own, however, as he picked an audience member to help him examine the early holiday card drafts and join him in donning garish wool Christmas sweaters. 

The first card the new duo displayed shared a warm holiday greeting, "Joy to you and yours this holiday season," yet the first draft was somewhat less affectionate. "I can't remember your kids' names," it read. 

Another rejected first draft was to a card stating "Joy to the World," which originally read "I sell weed now." "It's a similar sentiment," Colbert noted.

Finally, Colbert shared a card adorned with a jolly snowman. Inside it read "I'm dreaming of a white Christmas." Colbert then opened the first draft which featured Donald Trump's presidential campaign slogan, "Make America great again."
