President Obama was just the warm-up act for Marco Rubio's GOP response to the State of the Union, Stephen Colbert said Wednesday. So how did he do?
"Don't worry, Sen. Rubio, nobody noticed that you gave a speech," Colbert said. Rubio's ill-timed water break has dominated the headlines since Tuesday evening. The Florida senator's political action committee has even capitalized on the publicity by selling water bottles.PERMALINK | COMMENTS (0) | RECOMMEND RECOMMEND (0)
Stephen Colbert on Monday took at look at information apparently obtained by a hacker who goes by "Guccifer," who revealed email correspondence and photos from the Bush family.
"You see, President Clinton has his global initiative against poverty, and Jimmy Carter may have his Habitat for Humanity. But now we've learned that George W. Bush has been hard at work painting self-portraits in the shower," Colbert said. The hacker revealed a photo of George H.W. Bush in the hospital as well as two paintings allegedly by George W. Bush.PERMALINK | COMMENTS (0) | RECOMMEND RECOMMEND (0)
Stephen Colbert on Wednesday insisted that, as an objective broadcast journalist, he won't be giving his sister any free air time during her run for Congress in South Carolina.
"It doesn't matter that my sister is intelligent, hardworking, compassionate and dedicated to the people of South Carolina. I will not be mentioning any of that on my show," he said.
Colbert's sister, Elizabeth Colbert Busch, announced in mid-January that she would run for Congress in South Carolina's 1st District. Colbert Bush is running for the seat vacated by Tim Scott, who Gov. Nikki Haley appointed to fill Sen. Jim DeMint's seat when he left for the Heritage Foundation.PERMALINK | COMMENTS (0) | RECOMMEND RECOMMEND (0)
