Colbert Mocks 'Fox & Friends' Over Dzhokar Tsarnaev Miranda Rights Controversy (VIDEO)

Kudos to Stephen Colbert for recognizing that "Fox & Friends" used a pretty limited vocabulary with regards to Dzhokar Tsarnaev receiving Miranda rights, a move they contested because, despite the Constitution requiring Miranda rights to be read to anyone put under arrest, the Boston Marathon bombing suspect was evidently "singing like a canary," according to the "Fox & Friends" hosts.

In fact, "signing like a canary" was the only phrase they could come up to explain why it was a travesty of justice to read Tsarnaev his rights, as they used it about half a dozen times. After showing the repeated use of the phrase in a montage on Thursday night's "Colbert Report," Colbert launched into an old-timey, James Cagney-esque monologue: "He was singin' like a canary, see? He was squealin like a pig, droppin' a time like a dirty rat, a stoolie," he began.

Check out the clip above to see Colbert call out "Fox & Friends."
