After Colbert's latest outburst, it's clear what CBS News needs to do. Whether they will do it, however, is another matter whatsoeer.
Try to imagine if a similar remark had been made about a President Barack Obama or a President Hillary Clinton.
...he unleashed a string of insults, including “Mr. President, I love your presidency, I call it ‘Disgrace The Nation,’” and “You’re the ‘presi-dunce’ but you’re turning into a real ‘prick-tator.”...
But then he went about as brutal as we’ve ever really seen Colbert get, continuing, “Sir, you attract more skinheads than free Rogaine. You have more people marching against you than cancer. You talk like a sign-language gorilla that got hit in the head.”
And then Colbert finished it off with the most scathing line of them all: “In fact, the only thing your mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s cock holster,” which elicited gasps from the studio audience.
A conservative pundit would have made page one, above-the-fold headlines in every fake news periodical from The New York Times to The Washington Post. The questions raised here are good ones:

Seriously, Colbert's problem isn't vulgarity or his politics, it's that he's just not funny. It's embarrassing at this point.— Jason C. (@CounterMoonbat) May 2, 2017
Stephen Colbert is a pig. Thoughts?— Mark R. Levin (@marklevinshow) May 2, 2017
But CBS isn't real news, so don't expect any repercussions for the thoroughly unfunny and quite addled leftist Stefan Colbird.
