Stephen Colbert is known for being one of the least funny hosts in late night. Things got even worse for him this week when he came under fire for making a joke about President Donald Trump that even many liberals say is going too far.
Young Conservatives reported that during his show on Monday night, Colbert told Trump that, “the only thing your mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s c*** holster.” Skip to the 11:45 mark in the video above this story to see Colbert actually say that.
Various celebrities immediately began firing back at Colbert on Twitter:
If Democrats think this type of stuff helps them, it doesn’t. https://t.co/tIQ9QC4bmx

Homophobia for the right cause, with the right targets, is good homophobia, apparently. https://t.co/4rLd1wfTfA

In case you thought the dialogue in our country couldn’t get worse – or more crude. This is awful. https://t.co/qSjChQbxVY
