Late night comedian and anti-Trump crusader Stephen Colbert is facing a severe backlash this week for suggesting music icon Kanye West had “lost his mind” for supporting President Trump.
The comic was weighing in on West’s recent tweet-storm where he proclaimed his “love” for Donald Trump and refused to back down to the liberal “mob” calling for him to recant his statement.
“You don’t have to agree with trump but the mob can’t make me not love him. We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone. I don’t agree with everything anyone does. That’s what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought,” West tweeted.
“Yes, we have the right to independent thought and I independently think that Kanye has lost his mind,” Colbert fired-back.
“Stephen Colbert is just another ignorant, arrogant hate-monger who’s obsessed with Trump,” one viewer wrote.

LATE NIGHT LECTURE: Stephen Colbert Creating ANTI-TRUMP Animated Series
Late-night comedian Stephen Colbert is preparing to launch his anti-Trump animated series early next year; putting the finishing touches on ‘Cartoon President,’ a left-leaning comedy series aimed at taking down the President.
According to TV Line, the liberal host is ready to kick-off the 10-episode series on Showtime on February 11th, and will focus on the “misadventures” of President Trump and his inner-circle, including Donald Trump Jr. and White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
“The 10-episode animated series, executive-produced by Stephen Colbert and his Late Show EP Chris Licht, follows the Commander-in-Chief, his family and advisors over the course of their misadventures on a run-of-the-mill, ‘quintessentially Trumpian’ day in POTUS’ life. And ‘no one is safe, warns the cable network, adding that “key political figures from both parties and members of the media” are all fair game,” writes TV Line.
Colbert and fellow late-night comedians routinely attack President Trump, openly calling for his impeachment and railing against GOP-led initiatives, such as the Republican effort to repeal Obamacare or replace the nation’s outdated tax structure.

LATE NIGHT LECTURE: Stephen Colbert Staffer VICIOUSLY MOCKS Barbara Bush
A writer for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert came under fire from both liberals and conservatives Tuesday night; viciously mocking former First Lady and American icon Barbara Bush just hours after her passing.
Jen Spyra, a Colbert staffer, blasted the late wife of President George H.W. Bush on social media late Tuesday, saying “RIP Barbara Bush, the only woman who was 92 for 30 years.”

The backlash on Twitter was immediate, with Democrats and Republicans calling-out the comedian over her ill-advised words.
“Wow! That is incredibly insensitive and rude,” wrote one user.
“Why is it so difficult for a leftie to act like a human being? I think you meant to send condolences to the family&friends of Barbara Bush for the loss of their beloved wife,mother,grandmother and friend. There, now the next time an exemplary American dies, you know what to say,” added another.
