Stephen Colbert was “more than fired up” during Wednesday night’s episode of “The Colbert Report” about President Obama’s so-called “latte salute” to a pair of Marines.

The President was mocked by conservatives earlier this week for holding a coffee cup in his hand during the salute, which many on the right said showed disrespect for the military.

“Before the ugly accusations start flying from the liberals,” Colbert said, “this has nothing to do with the fact that the coffee was black.”

He added: “I am sick and tired of the race hustlers out there playing the Starbucks gift card because Obama wasn’t even drinking coffee.”

Colbert revealed Obama was more likely drinking chai tea.

“I bet that tea had a sprig of arugula in there and was certified halal by an undocumented gay Muslim barista,” he said.
