"Late Show" host Stephen Colbert broke some very surprising news on Monday night's show: Donald Trump creeps women out.

When the much-dissected New York Times' cover story about Trump's misconduct with women dropped Sunday, an email alert accompanying it read, "Donald Trump has repeatedly unnerved women in private encounters over 40 years."

"Unnerving women for 40 years, that's hard to believe," Colbert said. "That implies there were 29 years where he was not unnerving women. I'm gonna want a fact-check on that one."

"Here's the thing," Colbert added. "I'm not saying that Donald Trump objectifying women for 40 years isn't a story. It's just been a story for 40 years. This special report: not that special."
