“The Late Show” host Steven Colbert sparked national outrage from conservatives over his lewd and obscene comments about President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin Monday night.
Thursday, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai promised to conduct a full investigation of his remarks.
Saturday morning, Colbert received support from an unlikely ally – former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, who tweeted that Colbert’s statements should be protected by the First Amendment.
“Calls for FCC to punish Colbert are misguided – don’t let gov’t decide when speech is ok – let YOU decide by not viewing/buying,” Huckabee tweeted.
Calls for FCC to punish Colbert are misguided-don’t let gov’t decide when speech is ok-let YOU decide by not viewing/buying. #1stAmendment
