#FireColbert Tweets Surge After Stephen Colbert’s Racy Trump Joke
They say a comedian is supposed to say the things other people won't. If that's the case, Stephen Colbert has certainly done his job.
The Late Show host found himself at the center of a storm after he made a joke about Donald Trump during his monologue during Tuesday night's show that has resulted in the #FireColbert hashtag on Twitter.
During a rapid fire series of jokes about the president, Colbert said, "The only thing your mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s (expletive) holster." The clip, which has exploded with nearly three million views at press time, has gone viral.
This whole punchline has sent the Twittersphere into a tizzy, with some people calling for his ouster and some defending him. His joke has shined a light on the great divide between Trump supporters and Trump detractors. Take a look at some of the tweets below.
