STEPHEN COLBERT FIRES BACK AT CRITICS ON HIS TRUMP INSULT RANT

The “Late Show” star, Stephen Colbert is unrepentant and unapologetic about his foul-mouthed tirade in Monday night’s edition of his late night TV show.

On Monday night, the television host made a joke about President Donald Trump that many have termed homophobic and disrespectful.

During his opening monologue on Monday night, the Colbert said, “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,” he continued.

In Wednesday’s edition of the show, the 53-year-old offered an explanation of the whole controversy and responded to calls for him to be relieved of his duties at CBS.  In his words, Now, if you saw my monologue Monday, you know that I was a little upset at Donald Trump for insulting a friend of mine,” a reference to President Donald Trump’s decision to abruptly halt an interview with his colleague and Face the Nation host John Dickerson.

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,” he continued.

He went on to comment about a line in the monologue that many have tagged homophobic, by saying I would change a few words that were cruder than they needed to be.  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.”
