Trump Fires Back at Colbert

President Donald Trump fired back at Stephen Colbert in an interview this week following the Late Show host’s profanity-filled attacks on him during a segment on his show this month.

In an interview with Time magazine published Thursday, the commander-in-chief took on Colbert, who told a series of crude jokes about Trump during last week’s Monday broadcast that culminated in the host calling Trump’s mouth a “c*ck holster” for Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“You see a no-talent guy like Colbert. There’s nothing funny about what he says,” Trump told Time. “And what he says is filthy. And you have kids watching.”

In his opening monologue last Monday, the CBS funnyman said, “The only thing [Trump’s] mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s c*ck holster.” The joke was panned as homophobic and drew outrage from fans, who quickly made the hashtag #FireColbert a trending topic on Twitter.

Colbert addressed the controversy surrounding the joke on his show two days later and said he didn’t regret attacking the president.

In his remarks to media Thursday, Trump said Colbert’s crude comments “only builds up my base.”

“It only helps me, people like him. The guy was dying. By the way they were going to take him off television, then he started attacking me and he started doing better,” Trump added. “But his show was dying. I’ve done his show. … But when I did his show, which by the way was very highly rated… The highest rating he’s ever had.”

Indeed, Colbert’s late-night show has seen a ratings resurgence since Trump took office.

The president also took aim at a number of mainstream media personalities.

    What Trump says about no talent could be said about most of the “entertainment” industry today. But if these hacks have a audience willing to watch them, that’s all they care about. Trump’s contention that kids are watching is BS, not at 11:30 p.m. Trump needs to put down the Twitter kneejerk mouse and get to the business of governing! Getting into an argument with a a$$hole like Coal Bear will only make him look more and more like one, himself.

    Stephen Colbert’s mouth should’ve gotten his cocky ass kicked off the airwaves, but CBS obviously enjoys the ratings since this big mouth is still on at late nights taking pot shots at
    President Trump, who’s done nothing to this liberal asshole, but trying to, and actually doing what he promised to do from his campaign but this character and all the other liberal progressive scum out there haven’t given our president a single break, so they attack him with humility and insults, and Colbert still runs off at the mouth, like he’s untouchable, and enough is enough! he’s no different than the other celebrities who said they’d leave the country if Trump got elected, but they’re still here, causing more trouble and getting more people pissed-off at them! for the liberal media to viciously attack and undermine our newly elected CIC like this, sends a very dangerous message, and behavior like this shouldn’t be tolerated,period! Trump is not Obama, for which i am very greatful, and the Hillary Clinton supporters still didn’t get the message, she lost! so get a life already, and move on! but subverting the current presidency through these insults and attacks is serious Treason, the kind, that offenders wind-up in prison over, and that’s where we’re headed if these liberal media people like Colbert don’t get the message, this man’s out of control, along with liberal Hollywood, and something will eventually happen here, if this continues! CBS needs to either warn Colbert, or fire him over his stupidity! if the network thinks that this is about ratings, then they should be also be reminded that they are not above the laws of this country! they goes double for the lawless protesters and liberal progressives who’ve done nothing but look for trouble ever since Trump became our president, and to every last one of these vermin, if they don’t like that, than get the hell out of this country, and try that in other countries, and see how far they’ll get before they wind-up being jailed! the American voters have clearly spoken, and they better remember that, because all their behaviors border on Treason, and it’ll turn ugly for them, if they continue to provoke people in our country to war and confrontation, because it’ll happen!
