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.
