CBS doesn’t appear to have an issue with hate-filled comments made on its network.
Returning to his job of Trump-bashing on The Late Show, after a two-week vacation, Stephen Colbert jumped right back in by slamming President Trump’s response to Hurricane Harvey.
The host claimed the president “hawked a new line of USA hats, marveled at the size of the crowd he received, and failed to meet with a single victim of the devastating natural disaster during his first go-around,” before going on a disgusting rant about Ivanka because she calls her father, “Daddy.”
But after he threw the president three “Nazi salutes,” the outrage was palpable on social media, inspiring the hashtag #FireColbert.
“There is no room for satirical Nazi salutes that celebrate hate,” said one Twitter user.

On Thursday, Colbert started talking about Steve Bannon’s “conscious uncoupling” with the Trump administration.
“As so many things happened, I really missed the chance to talk about some big stuff—especially the exit of White House strategist – and Proactiv ‘before’ model – Steve Bannon,” quipped Colbert.
“Technically, I guess, Bannon wasn’t fired, because, on the day he left, the administration issued a statement that said, ‘White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and Steve Bannon have mutually agreed today would be Steve’s last day,’” said Colbert, adding, “Yes, it was a ‘mutual agreement,’ the same way my college girlfriend and I ‘mutually agreed’ that she’d be happier having sex with Gary.”
