True or False: YouTube is on the brink of demonetizing “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” channel due to repeated homophobic “jokes” about world leaders Trump and Putin.
Answer: False. Although it is true that Colbert has on multiple occasions made Trump and Putin the butt of homophobic wisecracks on his show, no one expects YouTube or any other social media platform to demonetize, suspend, or ban Colbert.
Until media outlets start referring to him as “conservative Stephen Colbert,” he is safe from the big tech arbiters of news facts and cultural decency.
Tuesday’s “The Late Show” contained the latest offensive buffoonery from the show’s leftist host during his opening monologue.
Colbert’s shtick included a clip of President Trump in Iowa saying, “I’d rather run against, I think, Biden than anybody. I think he’s the weakest mentally.”
“Do you really wanna open that can of worms?” Colbert asked.
From there, Colbert referred to a comment by Trump when the President said, “Biden thought China was not a competitor of ours … Biden is a dummy.”
“Biden’s the dummy?” said Colbert. “May I point out: Only one of you is sitting on Putin’s lap with his hand up your butt.”
None other than the Daily Beast attacked Colbert, as well as others who continue to make gay jokes, particularly when there is no basis in fact for such a joke. Their commentary included this …
Late last year, in a column titled “SNL’s Homophobic Trump-Putin Jokes Need to Stop,” our writer Kevin Fallon took on Saturday Night Live’s tired (and offensive) bits insinuating that President Trump is quite literally in bed with Russia’s Vladimir Putin.
“Basically, I think, the joke isn’t a joke at all—at least not one particularly tailored to these two political leaders or with any sort of perspective on the situation,” Fallon wrote. “The baseline idea here is that guys in love is inherently funny. No other observation or ‘take’ needs to exist to elicit a laugh; it’s simply funny because they’re dudes. Dudes in love. Dudes who have sex together. Ha! (?)”
He’s right: There’s nothing funny about the Trump-Putin gay jokes. They’re lazy at best and homophobic at worst.
In May of 2017, Colbert capped off a lengthy, multi-faceted insult for the nation’s President saying, “In fact, the only thing your mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s cock holster.”
In a subsequent response, according to the Daily Beast, Colbert said, “I don’t regret that. I believe he can take care of himself. I have jokes, he has the launch codes, so… it’s a fair fight.”
