Stephen Colbert Responds To Controversy And The 'Fire Colbert' Movement

By Mark Pygas

On Monday's episode of The Late Show, Stephen Colbert ruffled a few feathers in a monologue addressed to President Donald Trump. In the monologue, Colbert defended his fellow CBS host, John Dickerson, who Donald Trump was interviewed by on "Face the Nation." During the interview, Trump attacks the mainstream media and referred to the show as "Deface the Nation." 

Towards the end of his monologue, Colbert made the comment that ignited the controversy: "The only thing your mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s cock holster." Colbert was presumably taking a jab at the Trump administration's apparent ties to Russia, who are believed to have hacked the Democratic National Committee during the presidential election.
