All You Need To Know About Stephen Colbert’s Rant With Donald Trump

Some Pretty Strong Truths Were Told, But Colbert Why Suggest The Gay Theme?

Stephen Colbert had a lot to say to Trump. The Late Show host delivered quite a rant on Monday’s episode of the show. Colbert went super graphic when talking about President’s Trump relation with Putin.

For months now, Colbert has addressed Trump and has spoken his mind. However, the rant-turned-into-insults has received a mixed reaction.

Colbert addressed the first 100 days of Trump as President

Stephen Colbert has been one of the biggest criticizers of Donald Trump since the moment he announced he was running for President, so we’ve seen many rants delivered by The Late Show host.However, we haven’t seen anything like the one he delivered on Monday. Boy, prepare for it. During the opening monolog, Colbert delivered an 11-minute speech making fun of Trump’s first 100 in office.

He began talking about different issues and mocking Trump. He said, “Trump has repeatedly said that this 100 day is totally arbitrary, OK. Totally unimportant. And to prove how unimportant it is, he took out a TV ad, he cut a cake on Air Force One and he held a rally in Pennsylvania. The theme of that rally, ‘Promises Made, Promises Kept.’ Which is better than the original slogan, ‘Promises made, never mind, never said it, fake news, watch ‘Fox & Friends.’ “

The Late Show host mocked Trump’s “misconceptions” towards his new job. The President in a Reuters interview said he thought it would be easier and how much more work it implies. Colbert said, “Turns out being the leader of the free world is harder than licensing your name to luxury meat”.

When the President was asked what he thought of North Korea’s President he said: “He was a pretty smart cookie.” This went on for 9 minutes, and then the final 2 minutes were a rant of insults which found a previous explanation.

The Late Show’s round of insults came as he reviewed the President’s week of interviews. Which included an interview with CBS’s John Dickerson, during which the President explained how big his taxes are. Dickerson saw the interview that abruptly ended when he asked about how President’s unproven claims that then-President Obama had wiretapped Trump and members of his campaign.

So, Colbert decided to do something about it and said. “Mr. President, can you talk about your tax returns as a metaphor for your penis?”


Colbert didn’t hold back on the insults towards Trump

He then continued, “Donald Trump, John Dickerson is a fair-minded journalist and one of the most competent people who will ever walk into your office. And you treat him like that?” And he went on, “Now, John Dickerson has way too much dignity to trade insults with the president of the United States to his face. But I, sir, am no John Dickerson.”

Oh no, he’s not. He then explained how he’s enacting a policy, he said “the Tiffany Way: when you insult one member of the CBS family, you insult us all. Bazinga!”

Among the insults were some words like “presidunce” and “pricktator.” He finally said, “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 c**k holster.”


Getting a mixed reaction and dreaming with an interview

Carrying on with the show, Colbert pieced together footage from Trump’s interview with CBS’s Face the Nation and inserted himself as the interviewer. The sketch showed Trump as anything but presidential.

“Now sir, you’ve been in office for 100 days,” Colbert said in the “exclusive interview.” “What do you think people are saying about you?”

“People are saying, ‘Is he sane? I have no idea,'” Trump responded in the altered footage.

The US-North Korea hot topic was not out of the picture as Colbert found the way to put it on the altered footage. “Are you afraid you might start a nuclear war with North Korea?” the host asked.

“I was all set to do it,” Trump responded in the edited footage. “As we were sitting here, I was going to have to delay you. I was going to do it as we’re sitting here.”

Colbert definitely made fun and addressed important issues on Monday’s episode and in the monolog, however, some people was not ok with the monolog’s final insult. On Tuesday and Wednesday, the hashtag “FireColbert began trending as Trump supporters reacted to Colbert’s monolog. Some others used the hashtag to make fun Trump supporters reaction. However, Trump supporters aren’t the only ones who dislike Colbert’s insults.

Some consider that Colbert’s final insult was homophobic. “The only thing your mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s c**k holster.”

The underlying implication of that insult is that gay relationships are shameful, which is demeaning gay people.

Seems like Colbert trying to find his way to insult President Trump is suggesting that Trump is engaging in sexual acts with another man, Putin. This suggestion is as if the worst thing that could happen for these men is to engage in homosexual acts together. As if that devaluates them.
