<p>After CBS<em> Late Show</em> host Stephan Colbert launched into and <a href="http://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/kristine-marsh/2017/05/02/offended-…; target="_blank">vicious and vulgar tantrum</a> against President Trump Monday night, the broadcast networks were initially silent on the controversy swirling around the left-wing comedian. However, that silence was broken Wednesday morning when NBC&rsquo;s <em>Today</em> actually provided a full report on the backlash against the &ldquo;crude&rdquo; tirade.</p>

<p>Correspondent Stephanie Gosk began the segment by declaring: <strong>&ldquo;It was the late night joke that left audiences shocked.&rdquo;</strong> A soundbite followed of Colbert&rsquo;s nasty attack on the President: &ldquo;You talk like a sign language gorilla who got hit in the head. In fact, the only thing your mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin&rsquo;s [bleep] holster.&rdquo; Gosk explained: <strong>&ldquo;Stephen Colbert used a crude phrase while attacking President Trump during a 12-minute monologue Monday night. The comments received instant backlash online. The #FireColbert trending worldwide.&rdquo;</strong></p>
