In typical fashion, the Colbert Report host brilliantly feigns outrage to expose the hypocrisies of the NFL players and media outlets speaking out against Michael Sam, who was drafted as the first openly gay NFL player earlier this week. Colbert joked, "In the NFL, sexuality is supposed to take place off camera, and the fans should only find out about it when the charges are filed."
