Stephen Colbert Catches Heat After Making Vile 'Homophobic' Comment About Trump and Putin

| MAY 3, 2017 | 3:57 PM

On Monday night's episode of “The Late Show," host Stephen Colbert went into a rhyming rant criticizing President Trump.

The late night host was upset that Trump had insulted Colbert's CBS colleague, John Dickerson, during a recent interview on “Face The Nation.”

In response to this, Colbert said to the POTUS, “You are the presi-dunce but you're turning into a real prick-tator.”

Colbert quickly escalated his anti-Trump tirade: “Sir, you attract more skinheads than free Rogaine. You have more people marching against you than cancer.”

Then, Colbert's head-turning moment came when he dropped this line:

“The only thing your mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin's c**kholster.”

In the wake of Colbert's rather shocking statement, there was a mixed bag of responses.

While some praised the late night host for his daringness, many were appalled that he would say that about the president, no matter how strongly one might feel about him.

In fact, people were so upset that the hashtag #FireColbert is now trending:

This is by no means Colbert's first go at insulting Trump. It has become a regular theme on Colbert's recent episodes.

On the same day Colbert made the controversial statement about Trump, he posted this video to his Twitter account:
