Today on "The Chris Salcedo Show," Chris Salcedo offered analysis of late night host Stephen Colbert's crude monologue about President Donald Trump.

It started when Trump walked out on CBS's "Face the Nation" host John Dickerson during an interview in which he was asked to explain claims that former president Barack Obama had Trump Tower under surveillance during the 2016 campaign.

Chris agreed that the President might have been better served by explaining instead of inviting Dickerson to "figure that out yourself." Trump later renamed Dickerson's show "Deface the Nation."

The Colbert described Dickerson as "a fair minded journalist and one of the most competent people who will ever walk into your office" and has too much dignity to trade insults. Colbert then said "But I, sir, am no John Dickerson," following with "When you insult one member of the CBS family, you insult us all."

What followed is a series of insults not normally heard even on late night television.

Chris wondered that if Colbert is speaking for the entire CBS family and if they all have such vitriol for the President?
