Comedian Stephen Colbert recently unleashed a tirade against President Donald Trump that included an obscene sexual joke. On Thursday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program,” Glenn Beck had a message for Colbert: “You have become me, circa 2009.”
Glenn warned Colbert to stop adding to the division in our country, something that Glenn remembers all too well from his own experiences as a conservative commentator.
“Stop it,” Glenn said. He described his own anger toward the Obama administration and how he let that outrage fuel his commentary.
“There were times that it was vitriolic; I was so angry,” he remembered. “What you’re doing, Stephen Colbert, I know. I know what you’re doing. I’ve been there. And it doesn’t work.”
Since making the crude comments on “The Late Show” Monday, Colbert has stuck by his monologue, saying, “I don’t regret that. … I have jokes, he has launch codes.” In a small concession, Colbert said he may have used a different word or two, telling his audience Wednesday, “So while I would do it again, I would change a few words that were cruder than they needed to be.”
