New York, NY, United States (4E) – Stephen Colbert was the latest TV personality to be criticized by Trump supporters after the hashtag “#FireColbert” trended on Twitter due to his comments against President Donald Trump.
“The Late Show” host commented negatively against Trump during his monologue on Monday. The comments of Colbert against Trump came after the president was interviewed by CBS News’ John Dickerson. During the interview, Dickerson asked Trump about the wire-tapping claims and the president immediately stopped after the question.
Colbert then said on his Monday episode’s opening monologue that the president is Russian President Vladimir Putin’s “c**k holster.” Many believed the comments of Colbert were homophobic and many called for the advertisers of the show to boycott it.
His full statement reads, “Sir, you attract more skinheads than free Rogaine. 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.”
During the taping of the Wednesday episode of “The Late Show,” Colbert said, “Welcome to ‘The Late Show.’ I’m your host, Stephen Colbert. Still? I am still the host? I’m still the host!! Now, if you saw my monologue Monday, you know that I was a little upset at Donald Trump for insulting a friend of mine. 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.”
Colbert added that if he would do it again, he would change a few words and will not repeat the same phrase but he noted that life is too short so anyone can express how they feel. He said he hoped Trump would agree even just for that idea.
This is not the first time that Colbert insulted Trump but others believed he went too far during the Monday evening monologue.
Trump did not comment on the matter.
