Stephen Colbert, who gained popularity long before he took the place of David Letterman with his Comedy Network spoof of conservative pundits, has proven to CBS that he might not have been the best choice for their late night programming. In an epic anti-Trump rant that probably appealed to hard left commies and snowflakes, but not anybody else, Colbert has caught everyone's attention.
I suppose, sometimes, bad attention is good attention.
In response to his rant where he had choice words about President Donald J. Trump, including using profane language that included male genitalia, and a holster (that some people are calling "homophobic"), the #firecolbert effort has emerged.
You know, I really don't care if they fire him. That's up to CBS. As a conservative, I know that if they were to hire him, it would be like the death of a tyrant in the Middle East. . . the replacement will likely be something much, much worse.
As a constitutionalist, I think Colbert's rant was uncalled for, proof of his hard left leanings, and revealed the fact that he's a mindless and obedient lemming who believes the propaganda the Democrats put out so as to guide their leftist tools and pawns. Sure, he has every right to make the rant. But the rant proves he could care less about his job. His Marxist ideology is more important.
Should CBS fire him? If they think he'll hurt their ratings, such as Fox News thought when it came to O'Reilly, so be it. If we, as members of the public, don't like what he did, don't watch his show, and let the ratings fall as they may.
Personally, on rare occasion I have turned on his show, but within minutes he always confirms for me why I don't watch it. Colbert is not funny, can't keep his ideological insanity out of his program, and fails miserably as a host. Jimmy Fallon on NBC is worse. Kimmel is at least interesting, sometimes. Conan is just crazy.
I miss Johnny Carson.
