“Putin’s C*ck Holster” – #FireColbert Campaign Sores After Late Night Host’s Vicious Trump Joke
Late Night host Stephen Colbert and CBS are under heavy fire over an anti Trump joke that was deemed too far below the belt. According to the New York Daily News, Colbert said this about the president in his Tuesday opening monologue: “The only thing your mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s c–k holster.”
The controversial line came amid a series of insults made about the President in an effort to support CBS political host John Dickerson. Earlier this week, Trump ended an interview with Dickerson early after the veteran journalist asked the President if he still stood by his claims that Barack Obama wiretapped him during his campaign.
Trump also referred to Dickerson’s show “Face of the Nation” as “Deface the Nation.” This prompted Colbert to come up with his own diss-filled rant against Trump to defend his CBS family.
“Sir, you attract more skinheads than free Rogaine,” Colbert said. “You have more people marching against you than cancer. You talk like a sign language gorilla that got hit in the head.”
While his intentions were meant to stand by his network’s journalist, the Putin joke sparked a social media firestorm. Many called for Colbert’s job using the hashtag #FireColbert, which quickly climbed toward the top of Twitter’s trending topics list.
“So, Colbert is saying homophobic things again?” wrote user Michael Oxley. “Disappointing that CBS supports and empowers this. #firecolbert.”
