Family Guy has always toed and often crossed the line between having ignorant, prejudiced characters — and crass, lazy cracks at which a straight white guy is apt to be the only one in the room laughing. Now the show has committed to changing at least one side of its pseudo-edgy humor, using protagonist Peter Griffin as a mouthpiece. At one point, Peter makes a meta, fourth-wall-breaking speech and explains to Trump that Family Guy is trying to "phase out" gay jokes.
James Faulkner's Instagram photo of "dinner with the boyfriend", with the hashtag togetherfor5years, led to global media reports that he had become the first Australian cricketer to come out and a wave of supportive comments.

Why is it so hard for women to find men that are sensitive, caring, and good-looking? Because those men already have boyfriends. How many gays does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
Trump said during the interview that he liked to call the show "Deface the Nation. Colbert said Dickerson "has way too much dignity to trade insults with a president of the United States," before adding that he, himself, did not. Colbert then went through a list of pun-y jokes that was capped off with the oral sex line about Trump and Putin. Waaaaaaay over the line.
