Stephen Colbert to Fight ENDA Bill By Firing LGBT Employees – and Mermaids (Video)

The Comedy Central character demands his right to automatically toss the employment applications of hermaphro-trouts

Stephen Colbert needs to hurry up and fire all “Report” employees that don't share his highly specific personal sexual preference: tall women carrying heavy things.

The conservative character reacted Thursday to the Senate passing the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, which prohibits employers to discriminate against members of the LGBT community. While Colbert is still trying to work out the acronym, the American Family Association warns of a slippery slope.

“Luckily, this ENDA bill only applies to companies with 15 or more employees,” Colbert explained. “So you're safe for now, 14 Bigots Moving and Storage.”

The Comedy Central host does not like the government meddling in his affairs. Plus, ENDA is just the beginning.

“Today it's transgendered people, tomorrow the government will tell me I can't fire a mermaid; oh I'm sorry, excuse me — a hermaphro-trout,” Colbert self-corrected.
