Watch Stephen Colbert Explain How #CancelColbert Makes Him Just Like Jesus (Video)
Stephen Colbert jumped on the cooling ashes of the #CancelColbert nontroversy Monday, explaining that the out-of-context tweet was sent (and removed) by a Comedy Central account, not by him, but that he will nonetheless not bow to the "dark forces trying to silence my message of core conservative principles mixed with youth-friendly product placement." It's pretty funny, and we have it for you right here, because we are Good Americans.
Best moment (yeah, yeah, spoiler schmoiler): Colbert points out that in all the fuss over the out-of-context tweet, there wasn't much said about the actual target of the joke on his teevee show, the genuinely tone-deaf, unironic "Washington Redskins' Original Americans Foundation," which Colbert says “Twitter seems to be fine with, because I haven’t seen shit about that.”
Doktor Zoom's real name is Marty Kelley, and he lives in the wilds of Boise, Idaho. He is not a medical doctor, but does have a real PhD in Rhetoric. You should definitely donate some money to this little mommyblog where he has finally found acceptance and cat pictures. He is on maternity leave until 2033. Here is his Twitter, also. His quest to avoid prolixity is not going so great.
