Donald Trump appeared on "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert" Tuesday night — and while the Republican frontrunner made news for what he said on the program, viewers at home couldn't help but notice one thing.
Trump seemed toned down — or in his words "low energy."
Viewers and reporters watching at home turned to Twitter to express the exact same thought as they watched Colbert joke with the real estate tycoon.
"Trump seemed kind of low-energy tonight," Josh Barro of the New York Times tweeted.
That thought was echoed by Matt Ford of The Atlantic and Jose DelReal of The Washington Post.

Others chimed in as well, with some suggesting he looked tired and others contending he was exhibiting Jeb Bush energy levels.

Is it my imagination or has Trump toned his rhetoric down a bit for Colbert?— ckoh 고승범 (@ckoh 고승범) 1442980856.0
Wow, is it just me or does #Trump seem really rather subdued on #Colbert tonight? Is he just getting tired of it all...? Hmm... #LSSC— Misty, with a Mask 😷 (@Misty, with a Mask 😷) 1442980956.0
