Stephen Colbert has recently amped up his criticism of Donald Trump and it hasn't gone over too well with conservatives. After his most recent remarks led to calls of a boycott, the popular late night talk show host decided to speak out.

Colbert on Trump

Ever since the election of Donald Trump, it's been clear that the president isn't the most popular person in Hollywood and among most celebrities. During the 2016 presidential election, the former host of "The Apprentice" would routinely be the butt of the joke, regularly getting highlighted on "Saturday Night Live," as well as being the main target for comedians like Bill Maher.

With the exception of Fox News, Trump was also hit with serious backlash from most of the anchors and hosts on CNN and MSNBC, leading to a heated war of words between the president and the mainstream media. Over the last three and a half months, Trump has made several policy decisions that have led to criticism, which has on escalated following the growing Russian scandal, questionable executive orders, and other drama surrounding the White House. One man who has made sure to hit back at Trump has been Stephen Colbert. Earlier this week, Colbert ripped into the commander in chief with a brutal rant that resulted in right-wing push back and calls for the host to be fired. During the May 3 edition of the "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" on CBS, Colbert didn't hold back.

During his opening monologue of Wednesday night's "The Late Show," host Stephen Colbert addressed the recent backlash against him. "While I would do it again, I would change a few words that were cruder than they needed to be," Colbert admitted.

"I had a few choice insults for the president," Stephen Colbert said before noting, "I don't regret that." "He (Trump) I believe, can take care of himself," Colbert went on to say, before adding, "I have jokes.

He has the launch codes. So, it's a fair fight." Colbert continued on with his show, not pulling any punches when it came to discussing the president, further resulting in outrage from those who support the commander in chief.

Moving forward

While Stephen Colbert and other big name stars continue to rip into Donald Trump and the administration, the president has shown no signs of changing his ways. However, if Trump doesn't make a change in the near future, he is expected to watch his poll numbers drop even further, which are currently hovering around just 40 percent approval.
