Stephen Colbert is finally fed up with Donald Trump. Neither threatening to ban Muslims, flouting ethics rules, insulting journalists, nor any of the orange-hued billionaire’s many other offenses against decency enraged the Late Show host like his response to Meryl Streep’s Golden Globes speech.

Trump’s juvenile tweet deriding the legendary Streep as “overrated” went over the line — and Colbert’s wrath is something to behold.

Yeah, Colbert is furious. Watch for him in Washington on January 21 — at the Million Meryl March.
