Fox News Anchors Who Questioned Gabby Douglas’ Patriotism Get The Colbert Lampooning They Were Begging For

A few days ago there was a video clip making the rounds of some blonde Fox News garden knome calling the patriotism of gold medal gymnast Gabby Douglas into question because she didn’t wear red, white and blue while performing. The same dipshit was joined by an equally dipshitty guest and, as they see it, a 16 year-old girl wearing pink while tumbling is evidence of “soft anti-Americanism.”

If that weren’t enough, these two sh*t stains also questioned why more of the crowds at the Olympics aren’t chanting “U-S-A, U-S-A, U-S-A” incessantly at the London games. Perhaps it has something to do with, I don’t know, the fact that the games are being held in London and not in, say, Amurka?

Anyway, it took every ounce of restraint I could muster not to go off on these two clowns in a post. Thankfully, Colbert gave them the public shaming they so obviously deserved last night. Enjoy.
