Colbert Addresses Homophobic Trump Joke

Liberal TV host Stephen Colbert had the hashtag #FireColbert trending earlier this week after he told a vulgar joke about President Trump in the middle of his opening monologue Tuesday.

“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,” said the host during his tirade.

Now, during Wednesday night’s monologue, Colbert addressed the backlash he faced for his comments — and Trump fans are not happy.

Watch the non-apology above.
