Stephen Colbert's Execrable Anti-Trump Monologue Inspires #firecolbert Hashtag

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Stephen Colbert`s monologue on Monday, in which he dragged the president for his treatment of Face the Nation host John Dickerson, had some on Twitter making allegations of homophobia.

In the opening that has already amassed more than 2.5 million views on YouTube and sparked the hashtag #FireColbert on Twitter, the Late Show host unapologetically took several shots at Trump because, as he explained it, `When you insult one member of the CBS family, you insult us all.`"

Stephen Colbert resurrected the ratings of his show by becoming the resister-in-chief, every night he piles on Donald Trump. The president deserves to be criticized and ridiculed, he`s an embarrassment to our democracy.

Colbert`s Monday night monologue was Trumpian in its vulgarity and coarseness, it infuriated viewers so much that it inspired the hashtag #firecolbert.

Ostensibly Colbert launched into his diatribe in defense of his colleague John Dickerson, whom he alleges was dissed by the president. Dickerson is a big boy and he can defend himself, and anyway he wasn`t insulted by Trump.

Here`s the joke that was over-the-top: In fact, the only thing your mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin`s cock holster.

Colbert shouldn`t get a pass from the gay and lesbian community because he`s a liberal, they should condemn homophobic comments regardless if they emanate from a conservative or a progressive.

Trump`s vulgar speech has inspired politicians, pundits and late night comics to mimic him, but Colbert`s monologue was inappropriate for a network program, and indefensibly homophobic.

Since everybody is waxing obscene, let me close my stating: Mr. Colbert the only thing your mouth is good for is eating shit, so eat shit and die.
