Stephen Colbert thinks Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill (D) has a lot to answer for after launching an “attack ad against attack ad launchers.”
So he had the senator do just that, inviting her on The Report to talk about all the “secret money” pouring into politics.
“You know, I have a Super PAC,” Colbert reminded her. “I don’t know if you read the paper, I’ve got so much cash. Would you like some of it?”
“I can’t ask you for Super PAC money because that would be coordination, which, as you well know, Stephen, is illegal,” McCaskill responded.
“I was trying to entrap you in a federal crime. Good lady!” Colbert said.
