Christie says Colbert should be suspended for Trump rant

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, the most unpopular governor in America, thinks CBS should suspend "The Late Show" host Stephen Colbert for a series of jokes insulting President Donald Trump.

Christie said as much to Star-Ledger reporter Matt Arco, who reported the governor's views on Twitter.

Christie, a Trump supporter ever since his own presidential bid failed, joins a number of Conservatives who've lashed out at Colbert for his rant, which included saying Trump "has more people marching against you than cancer" and that the only thing his mouth is good for "is being Vladimir Putin’s c--- holster."

Specifically regarding the Putin comment, some have labeled the joke homophobic and called for Colbert's firing.

In his insult-ridden monologue Monday night, Colbert was responding to Trump calling CBS co-worker John Dickerson part of the "fake" news media and naming his show "de-Face the Nation" during an interview.
