Stephen Colbert knows his epic ‘cock holster’ rant against Donald Trump was ‘crude’ but he’s not sorry

Stephen Colbert’s epic rant earlier this week against Donald Trump included a controversial ‘cock holster’ joke about Trump and Vladimir Putin that has some conservatives claiming was homophobic.

Colbert looked into the camera on The Late Show Monday and delivered some rapid-fire insults which included: ‘The only thing your mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s cock holster.’

CBS bleeped the word ‘cock.’

Aware of the outrage and a Twitter campaign to have him fired, Colbert returned to the air Wednesday (3 May) and said: ‘Now, if you saw my monologue Monday, you know that I was a little upset at Donald Trump for insulting a friend of mine (CBS Face the Nation host John Dickerson). 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.’

The Colbert rant picks up steam at the 10:40 mark. It’s a riot.

    Stephen Colbert just made me love him even more. I say KEEP Stephen Colbert and give him a raise. CBS better stand by him. This so called president is dangerous.

    And just when did conservatives all of the sudden become concerned with homophobia? They are not concerned with the lives or LGBT. They’re just pissed because their president was insulted.

    The real horror is Trump as POTUS and the Republican administration. Keep giving it to him good, Stephen!

  2. I find it hilarious and very insulting that conservatives call this “homophobic” when they live, breathe, eat, sleep homophobia daily. I thank God for people like Stephen Colbert, Seth Meyers, SNL, Alec Baldwin for the humor that is getting me through this catastrophy, and Rachel Maddow for her intelligence and the way she exposes the truth about what is going on that we aren’t necessarily privvy to without her. If I didn’t have Stephen and Seth to end my days with laughter, I would be in a loony bin by now. I can’t take much more of these a-holes in office. Each day I find myself gasping over one thing or another. The impeachment can’t come soon enough and I hope it cleans out everyone connected to Neon Hitler.
