Jim Parsons Weighs In On Stephen Colbert’s Trump Monologue Scandal


Last week Stephen Colbert presented a monologue on his show insulting Donald Trump. That may not sound like news, but this particular monologue caused a huge scandal due to its graphic content. Jim Parsons soon after appeared on Colbert’s show and gave his take on the whole ordeal.

Stephen Colbert’s Monologue

Stephen Colbert performed a monologue earlier this week that included a slew of insults towards President Trump, after the POTUS insulted Colbert’s friend, John Dickerson.

Colbert said, “John Dickerson has way too much dignity to trade insults with the President of the United States to his face…But I sir, am no John Dickerson.” Colbert then went on to make a slew of jokes, some being incredibly distasteful and graphic.

Outcry came immediately as the hashtag #firecolbert began to trend. Things escalated so far that the Federal Communications Commission stated it will take “appropriate action” after investigating the numerous complaints it received. Some viewers even thought the insults were homophobic, after Colbert referred to POTUS and Putin in a compromising situation. His mouth was blurred during part of the speech.

Colbert responded by saying, “So while I would do it again, I would change a few words that were cruder than they needed to be…I’m not going to repeat the phrase, but I just want to say for the record, life is short, and anyone who expresses their love for another person, in their own way, is to me, an American hero. I think we can all agree on that. I hope even the president and I can agree on that. Nothing else. But, that.”

Jim Parsons Responds

Jim Parsons was schedule to appear on Colbert’s show later in the week. He immediately addressed Colbert by saying, “So you weren’t fired?” Colbert admitted to Parsons that he “had to cut his phone chords,” and Jim responded coyly “Are you feeling homophobic?”  

Colbert responded saying, “No, actually I’m feeling homophillic.” Jim continued, “I thought that was a very strange tag to put on the whole monologue…I thought, ‘that’s not homophobic!’ You taught me new terms…As a gay man I didn’t know certain things that you taught.” 

Looks like Jim wasn’t offended by Colbert’s word choices at all.

How did you feel about the Stephen Colbert Monologue addressing President Trump?

    I think Colbert should be fired. he was so disrespectful. If this had been done to Obama there would be hell to pay….in some countries you do this, they shoot you ….or torture you and then kill you…lucky for him we have free speech, but he went WAY too far

      colbie is truly trailer trash. he is just another liberal a$$ hole trying to see how low in the stinking gutter he can go. Won’t be to long they will have to tunnel light down to him. He is so corrosive and vile and repulsive that only the perverts would want to watch his ugly conceited show!!

    He is a disgusting man… no class! Remember Karma is a bitch!!!!

    • You’ re referring to Trump? Couldn’t agree more. The man is a racist, lying moron.

      • Bill

        He was never accused of racism before he ran politically against a democrat – so that is a lie.
        Trump is a liar? Prove it.

        Truth is, you’re just another liberal hypocrite parroting their anti-American rhetoric of defaming the character of our President, because poor little Hillary did not win. Grow up and get a clue.
        We’re sick of this BS coming from the left – you remember them, the ones that demand tolerance, yet damn anyone that disagrees with them.

    What a disgrace. No one should be allowed to be that bad mouth ugly words and hateful and disrespectful. Espically on national tv.the commissioner should kill the show. Where do they draw the line… I pray for these host to realize the hate they are displaying and the effect on America and the world. Come together peace on earth.

  • Eugenia

    I don’t watch the man. If the only thing he is capable of doing as a host is bash Trump then he should be replaced. This country is full of people who voted for Trump and actually still feel like we should show some respect to our leaders. It is sad that this is all Colbert can think to say and do for so called entertainment.

    The dude was out the door before Trump became president. Trump saved his job. This won’t last much longer though. His Trump jokes will get old and he won’t have anything left. Then he’ll go back to being last in his time slot.

    In my opinion there is no bigger Ass on TV than Colbert , he is the Worse .

  • Andtea

    I support Stephen Colbert. My large group of lGBTQ friends and family were not offended. Freedom of Speech. Tired of the hatred. Tired of name calling. I praise him for his need to defend a friend and fellow joyrnalust after the despicable behavior by someone who should show more class and decorum. If you don’t like Stephen Colbert, then change the channel. That’s all.
