Stephen Colbert, in an obviously desperate attempt to grab some headlines and cheap ratings, resorted to absolutely disgusting, homophobic insults against President Donald Trump during a recent monologue.
While liberal comedians may think we live in a day and age when anything goes, that’s just not the case. Lines, even if they’re far out there, have to be drawn… and by all accounts, Colbert crossed it with his foul, anti-Trump jokes.
It was so bad that even the FCC, who have let television basically run wild over the past decade, are considering massive action against the third-rate late-night show host.
The Hill reports:
Late night talk show host Stephen Colbert’s controversial joke about President Trump drew the attention of the Federal Communications Commission. The agency received “a number” of complaints about Colbert’s commentary earlier in the week, according to the FCC’s chief.
FCC Chairman Ajit Pai promised to “take the appropriate action” following a comprehensive investigation of Colbert’s remarks.
The FCC’s response will depend on whether Colbert’s remarks are considered “obscene.”
“We are going to take the facts that we find and we are going to apply the law as it’s been set out by the Supreme Court and other courts and we’ll take the appropriate action,” he told Talk Radio 1210 WPHT Thursday.
Colbert on Monday unleashed a flood of insults at Trump, satirizing an interview with CBS news the president cut short the day before.
“The only thing your mouth is good at is being [Russian President] Vladimir Putin’s c—k holster,” he said of Trump.
Colbert on Wednesday defended his joke amid fierce backlash online.
SHARE this on Facebook and Twitter if you think this moron should feel the heat from the FCC by being fined a huge amount!
