Stephen Colbert got in some hot water this week after he delivered a flurry of harsh jokes about Donald Trump during Monday night's Late Show. One joke, in particular, offended people so much that a #FireColbert movement started. Colbert started off Wednesday night's show by saying, "I'm your host, Stephen Colbert," and then looked at someone off camera and said, "Still? Am I still the host?" before finally exclaiming, "I'm still the host!"
Colbert's Trump tirade was in response to the president rudley ending an interview with CBS News political director John Dickerson because Trump didn't want to answer Dickerson''s questions. Colbert wasn't a fan of how Trump treated Dickerson, and launched into a series of brutal jokes. The one that caused the controversy was about Trump performing oral sex on Russian President Vladimir Putin.
On Wednesday, Colbert said that he didn't regret it, and that he would do it again, adding that he would change a few words that were "cruder than they needed to be." Colbert then wanted to move forward with a positive message that he hoped everyone could agree with, even Trump. Colbert said, "Anyone who expresses their love for another person in their own way is, to me, an American hero. And I think we can all agree on that. I hope even the president and I can agree on that," adding, "Nothing else, but that."
