FCC Chair on Colbert’s ‘Cock Holster’ Comments: If FCC Finds the Comments Obscene There Will be Consequences

FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai went on with Steve Malzberg from Newsmax TV on Wednesday to discuss Stephen Colbert’s nasty, vulgar attacks on President Trump earlier this week.

Ajit Pai told Steve that if Colbert’s comments were found obscene there would be consequences.

Newsmax reported:

Stephen Colbert’s raunchy joke about President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin engaging in a sex act is likely protected by the First Amendment, FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai told Newsmax TV on Wednesday.

“People are willing and able to say just about anything these days,” Pai, appointed by Trump to head the FCC in January, said in an interview with Newsmax’s Steve Malzberg on “America Talks Live.”

On Tuesday, Colbert, host of CBS’ “The Late Show,” used his opening monologue to take aim at Trump, implying the commander in chief had engaged in fellatio with Putin.

“You talk like a sign language gorilla that got hit in the head,” Colbert said of Trump. “In fact, the only thing your mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s cock holster.”…

…Pai said that unless the veteran comic’s cracks — aired on FCC-regulated broadcast television — were deemed to be obscene, there would be no consequences.
