Stephen Colbert attacked Trump with a Putin joke that some think is homophobic. Hannah Cranston, Hasan Piker, and Brett Erlich, the hosts of The Young Turks, discuss if Colbert’s joke was homophobic. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
“A crude joke about U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin has sparked a social media storm with calls for late-night TV show host Stephen Colbert to be fired competing with praise for his outspoken remarks.
Colbert, host of the "The Late Show" on CBS, made an oral sex joke on Monday night about Trump and Putin during a scathing diatribe against the U.S. president.
It triggered a #FireColbert trending Twitter hashtag, with Trump supporters on Wednesday calling for a boycott of CBS Corp advertisers, some people accusing Colbert of being homophobic, others accusing left-wingers of hypocrisy, and still more defending the comedian.”
