While the liberal media has never embraced the president, one of Trump’s most vocal and early critics was Stephen Colbert. The former host of The Colbert Report used his new platform at The Late Show to constantly insult the president-to-be in an attempt to dissuade his audience from voting Republican.
Even those who enjoyed Colbert’s comedic moments, as rare as they were, grew weary of his obsession with criticizing Trump, and ratings for the show took a noticeable dive after the election.
This hasn’t stopped Colbert from continuing with his losing formula. If anything his attempts to ridicule the president just got taken up a notch.
President Trump’s recent interview with John Dickerson, Colbert’s pal at CBS, appears to be the straw that broke Colbert’s back. Even though it was Dickerson who demonstrated an astonishing lack of respect for President Trump during the interview, Colbert spun the whole situation and claimed Trump was the disrespectful one.
After that, things got out of control very quickly.
Colbert also stood up for his CBS colleague, saying Dickerson has “way too much dignity to trade insults with a president of the United States to his face.”
However, Colbert admitted, “I sir, am no John Dickerson”…before he unleashed a string of insults, including, “Mr. President, I love your presidency, I call it ‘Disgrace The Nation,’” and “You’re the ‘presi-dunce’ but you’re turning into a real ‘prick-tator.”
But then he went about as brutal as we’ve ever really seen Colbert get, continuing, “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.”
And then Colbert finished it off with the most scathing line of them all: “In fact, the only thing your mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s cock holster,” which elicited gasps from the studio audience.
Colbert claims to be a Catholic, but his X-rated rant contained language more befitting a brothel than a national audience.
Why would someone of Colbert’s considerable talent take things this far? Did Trump’s dismissal of Dickerson during their CBS interview trigger Colbert into a fit of apoplectic rage? Is being forced to deal with the fact that Democrats lost too much for Colbert’s fragile psyche? Or is this all for ratings?
Whatever his reasoning, Colbert’s conduct was completely unacceptable. If a conservative host had said insulted Obama in such a manner they would have been fired immediately. But because Colbert is merely a cog in the left-wing media propaganda machine, he is allowed to get away with it.
If this is how Colbert is going to act after just 100 days of President Trump, imagine the look on his face when Trump wins again in 2020!
