A funny thing happened to Stephen Colbert during his extended run at the top of the late-night ratings: After one of his many segments attacking President Trump went viral, people on social media started asking that CBS #FireColbert over something he said on Monday's show.
Colbert did not respond to the campaign Tuesday, but on Wednesday the issue led his show. "I'm your host, Stephen Colbert," he said. "Still? Am I still the host? I'm still the host!
"Now, folks, if you saw my monologue on Monday, you know that I was a little upset with Donald Trump for insulting a friend of mine," Colbert began. "So, at the end of that monologue I had a few choice insults for the president in return."
