The unimportant Stephen Colbert makes a fact-free slam about President Trump fellating Vladimir Putin. Nothing worth mentioning, there.
He imagines that he’s being relevant or edgy or manly. Still nothing worth mentioning.
People ask what would happen if any comedian made such a slam on President Obama (who, in a most embarrassing moment in 2012, promised the Russians to be nicer than he was letting on with American voters). Example #1,234,511,998 to point out the Left’s double standards. True, but still not much to mention.
Then #FireColbert becomes a thing as people start noticing that Colbert’s slur was essentially, um, homophobic.
Taking double standards to a new low, left-wing celebrities defend Colbert’s slur. (Among them, the execrable George Takei.)
Predictably, Colbert claims the devil made him do it (Trump).
What happens next?
