Stephen Colbert Addresses "Joke" Controversy; Stops Short Of Apology


That.....wasn't an apology.

Stephen Colbert came under fire for a recent "joke" he made directed towards President Trump and Putin.

Many have been calling for Colbert to be fired (a tad extreme) with #FireColbert trending following his words Monday night. Well, Stephen had a chance to apologize....

And didn't.

Monday night, Colbert ended his tirade against the President with “The only thing your mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s c–k holster.” Many viewed this as homophobic. 

He opened tonight's monologue with:

“Welcome to The Late Show,” 

“I’m your host, Stephen Colbert. Still? I am still the host? I’m still the host!!”

“Now, if you saw my monologue Monday, you know that I was a little upset at Donald Trump for insulting a friend of mine,” 

“So at the end of that monologue I had a few choice insults for the president in return. I don’t regret that. He, I believe, can take care of himself. I have jokes; he has the launch codes. So, it’s a fair fight.”

“So while I would do it again, I would change a few words that were cruder than they needed to be,” 

 “I’m not going to repeat the phrase, but I just want to say for the record, life is short, and anyone who expresses their love for another person, in their own way, is to me, an American hero. I think we can all agree on that. I hope even the president and I can agree on that. Nothing else but that.”

Thank you Madonna.

"I stand before you as a doormat. Oh, I mean, as a female entertainer," Madonna said. "Thank you for acknowledging my ability to continue my career for 34 years in the face of blatant sexism and misogyny and constant bullying and relentless abuse."
