Stephen Colbert takes hypocritical gutter-dive

By May 4, 2017May 12th, 2017Politics, Pop Culture

There’s nothing more irritating than an elitist, liberal hypocrite who can dish it out — big league, as President Trump likes to say — but can’t take it.

Enter Stephen Colbert, host of the Late Night Show on CBS, who on April 27 tweeted: “If Jesse Watters’ lewd comments about Ivanka Trump got him a ‘vacation,’ then Trump must have enough points racked up to retire.”

Less than a week later, Colbert has his own social media firestorm. Twitter has been lit up with demands to #FireColbert.

It’s all thanks to his profanity-laced monologue on Monday night, when Colbert ripped into our president with such vile terms they had to be bleeped out during the telecast — and can’t be printed here.

A sample:

“Sir, you attract more skinheads than free Rogaine. You have more people marching against you than cancer. You talk like a sign language gorilla that got hit in the head. In fact, the only thing your mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s (expletive) holster.”

I tweeted back at Colbert last night asking him: “How many points do YOU have racked up after Monday night’s extremely lewd, offensive monologue?” #hypocrite #FireColbert

Funny, I never heard back from him. Nor have we heard any outrage from the left, beyond a mild tut, tut from Vox.

Can you imagine if Hillary Clinton were president and someone made a remark like Colbert did?

There would be a total media meltdown.

Liberals support “safe spaces” on campus for snowflake college students who need “trigger warnings” before hearing any theoretically offensive speech. They support political correctness in all its censorship-loving manifestations. And they lose their minds over conservative websites like exercising their free speech rights.

But when it comes to attacking a sitting Republican president — Donald Trump — they dive head-first into the gutter.

It’s no wonder America — particularly the flyover states — ignored the continuous loop of attacks and negative Trump coverage from Hollywood and the mainstream media during the campaign.

Voters aren’t stupid, and they’re tired of being treated as such by elitist liberals living in glass houses.

Colbert shouldn’t be fired for his repulsive speech. The First Amendment is there to protect not just speech we like, but speech we don’t like.

What Colbert should be fired for is being a Class A hypocrite.

That’s far more offensive.
