Not everyone is happy about Stephen Colbert getting “The Late Show.”

While many celebrities voiced their support of the choice, Rush Limbaugh says the move means CBS “just declared war on the heartland of America.”

On his Thursday radio show, the talk show icon blasted the selection Colbert, whose “The Colbert Report” character satirizes conservative pundits and beliefs.

“No longer is comedy going to be a covert assault on traditional American values, conservatives, now it’s just wide out in the open,” explained Limbaugh. “What this hire means is a redefinition of what is funny and a redefinition of what is comedy.”
