TV presenter sees nothing bad in a joke that brought him under fire a few days ago and he does not regret about it. In a stinging monologue on Monday’s episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, the comedian attacked the American President joking that his mouth was good only for, hm, satisfying the Russian President. The Internet audience branded Colbert as homophobe and he decided to comment the controversy. “Now if you saw my monologue Monday, you know that I was a little upset at 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,” Colbert says, “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.”
