Stephen Colbert is trending on Twitter today:
What hilarious thing did he say or do now to make him such a hot topic? Gotta be his quality joke about the Fox News Christmas tree getting set on fire:
Flaming Christmas Tree just got its own show on FoxNews!

Get it? Because … no, you know what? We aren’t even going to try to explain this one. Usually when Colbert makes a stupid joke, we can at least understand what he was going for when he faceplanted. But this time, he just faceplanted.
Writers on strike?

Not funny, but par for the course.

It’s not just dumb; it’s offensively dumb. It’s offensive to anyone with a functional sense of humor.
Yes, arson is a wonderful subject to make "funny".

Would you find arson funny if it happened at your place of work
— Kyle Smith (@rkylesmith) December 9, 2021
Funny as arson

Stephen Colbert has committed a crime against comedy.
See? Even that’s a better joke than his Fox News one.
Most likely will have higher ratings than you, asshat

Now that’s funny.
You’re a sicko. This man needs help, not to be the source of your (bad) jokes. pic.twitter.com/LKSLTiSk62

Maybe Stephen Colbert should get some help, too. He could clearly benefit from some.
