Stephen Colbert wants to know: Did your straight marriage start to feel a little weak Wednesday afternoon? If so, it was because President Barack Obama publicly endorsed same sex marriage in an interview in the Oval Office, a room previously reserved, Colbert noted, for “hummers from interns.”
Yes, he said, on Wednesday afternoon, the president pushed “the Rainbow Button and launched ‘Gay-mageddon.'” The camera cut away to a clip from the ABC interview, then back to a flower-bedecked “Colbert Report” set, where Stephen was about to slip a ring on to the finger of a perfectly nice young man in a violet ascot, then abruptly came to his senses again.
One state, said the outspoken host, has had the nerve to stand up for traditional marriage, North Carolina, which passed the controversial Amendment One to the state’s constitution, which outlaws any forms of marriage or civil union other than heterosexual marriage between a man and a woman.
In other words, said Colbert, “Suck it, gays. By which I mean, ‘Do not.'”

Unhinged Trump supporter yells about his .357 Magnum after reporter asks about impeachment
A Trump supporter was caught on camera this week yelling about the .357 Magnum he owned after a reporter asked him about the prospect of President Donald Trump being removed from office.
In an interview with CBS News, the unidentified Trump supporter insisted that the Senate would never convict the president even if the House voted to impeach him.
"He's not going to be removed," the supporter said. "He's not going to be removed! He's not going to be removed!"
"Do you feel confident in that?" the reporter asked.
"My .357 Magnum is comfortable with that!" he said. "End of story!"
Stunning shift as Amy Klobuchar ‘tones things down’ after Ted Cruz rants about ‘Beavis and Butt-Head’ at IG hearing
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) loudly and angrily bashed the Federal Bureau of Investigation during his time to speak during Wednesday's hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Cruz ended his speech with two cultural references from the last century, citing fictional spy Jason Bourne who was first introduced by novelist Robert Ludlum in 1980 and Mike Judge's characters Beavis and Butt-head from the TV show of the same name that debuted in 1993.
"This wasn't Jason Bourne, this was Beavis and Butt-head," Cruz argued.
Cruz was followed by Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), who quickly shifted away from such a style of interrogation.
Barr won’t let Trump supporters give up ‘deep state’ conspiracy theories: MSNBC anchor
MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell says the Justice Department inspector general's testimony doesn't matter, because the attorney general had already undercut his credibility.
Michael Horowitz, the department's inspector general, told the Senate Judiciary Committee about the findings in his report on the origins of the Russia probe, but Mitchell said Attorney General William Barr made that testimony unnecessary.
"At this stage, everybody is locked into their positions," Mitchell said. "You're never going to persuade the partisans who support the president's conspiracy theories. You see them at the rallies and out on the campaign trail."
