NO REGRETS: Stephen Colbert responds to #FireColbert controversy over ‘homophobic’ Trump joke

Stephen Colbert addressed the controversy over his Donald Trump–Vladimir Putin joke from his show on Monday, saying he has no regrets and that he’d do it again:

“Now, folks, if you saw my monologue on Monday, you know that I was a little upset with 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.

Although he did address his critics who suggested his line — “The only thing [Trump’s] mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putins c**k holster”– was “homophobic“:

So while I would do it again, I would change a few words that were cruder than they needed to be. Im 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. And Ithink we can all agree on that. I hope even the president and I can agree on that. Nothing else, but, that.”
