Traitor, loser, deserter. Fox News can’t seem to find enough insults to describe prisoner of war Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. And to add insult to injury, in exchange for the American captive “we gave up the [Taliban] Dream Team!” exclaims “The Colbert Report” host. “Now who are we going to send to the Rio Olympics in 2016?”

Watch as Stephen Colbert joins Fox News and CNN in disparaging the tortured Bergdahl and drawing comparisons between the sergeant’s years in captivity and those of the character Nicholas Brody on Showtime’s “Homeland.” As the comedian puts it, “You cannot make this stuff up, although we will continue to try.”
