Stephen Colbert ended his opening monologue with a gesture towards Trump — a Nazi salute, to be precise.
After roasting Stephen Bannon following the former Trump adviser’s intense interview with Charlie Rose, Colbert gave a guess as to where Trump’s support level is at.
“I’d say his support is about… about up there,” Colbert said, raising his right hand in a peculiar manner.
Conservative media outlets responded with outrage following Colbert’s “salute” last Thursday.
They also said it wasn’t too funny.
“The outrage should be over how utterly lame the joke was, not the actual salute,” Paul Joseph Watson, a contributor to the online conspiracy publication Infowars, wrote on Twitter.
