Audience Cheers Stephen Colbert for Suggesting Fox News Journalist Should Be Assaulted

(AbsoluteNews.com) – Fox News journalist Peter Doocy and members of President Joe Biden’s administration often clash. The no-nonsense reporter isn’t afraid to ask officials the tough questions, which is exactly what he did when speaking to Biden recently. His questions angered one late-night host so much he’s advocating for violence against the journalist.

On Tuesday, March 29, CBS’ “The Late Show” host Stephen Colbert brought up a recent press conference where Doocy asked Biden what he meant when he said he would respond in kind if Russian President Vladimir Putin uses chemical weapons. The president responded to the journalist by saying he wasn’t going to tell him his plans.

The back and forth prompted Colbert to tell his audience that the POTUS should slap Doocy like actor Will Smith slapped comedian Chris Rock. His audience laughed loudly, condoning the host’s violent suggestion.

Colbert’s joke comes a night after he said he didn’t think comedians ever deserved to be slapped by people who don’t like their jokes. Apparently, he doesn’t extend the rule to journalists who are holding the American president to account.

Do you think Colbert should face consequences for advocating violence on his show?
