On Tuesday night, Late Show host Stephen Colbert made a homophobic joke about Donald Trump. Millions of Americans on all sides of the political spectrum are calling for him to be fired because of the vulgarity of his speech against the POTUS.
“Sir, you attract more skinheads than free Rogaine,” Colbert said during his profranity-laced rant. “You have more people marching against you than cancer. You talk like a sign language gorilla that got hit in the head. In fact, the only thing your mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s c–k holster.”
CNN Money reported that on Wednesday night, Colbert broke his silence after the controversy, and what he had to say is utterly despicable.
“Welcome to ‘The Late Show.’ I’m your host, Stephen Colbert. Still? I am still the host? I’m still the host!” Colbert said light-heartedly at the opening of his show, proving that he’s not taking this seriously. He went on to say that he had been ranting against Trump because the president walked out of an interview with CBS’s “Face the Nation” host John Dickerson’s after the reporter pressed him about his claims that President Obama wiretapped him.
“Now, if you saw my monologue Monday, you know that I was a little upset at Donald Trump for insulting a friend of mine,” Colbert said. “So at the end of that monologue, I had a few choice insults for the president in return. I don’t regret that. He, I believe, can take care of himself. I have jokes; he has the launch codes. So, it’s a fair fight.”
“While I would do it again, I would change a few words that were cruder than they needed to be,” he said. “I’m not going to repeat the phrase, but I just want to say for the record, life is short, and anyone who expresses their love for another person, in their own way, is to me an American hero. I think we can all agree on that. I hope even the president and I can agree on that. Nothing else. But, that.”
This is EXACTLY the kind of smug liberal that MILLIONS of Americans are sick of. SHARE this story if you think Stephen Colbert should be FIRED!
