Crashing “Colbert”

Hillary Clinton was the scheduled guest on “The Colbert Report,” but the faux commentator threw his audience for a loop.

After Clinton appeared in a segment that riffed on her status as a know-it-all, John Edwards was brought on, as a representative of the most important voting bloc this year” “white men.”

“You know, Stephen, you’re right about white males playing an important role in this election,” Edwards said, per the New York Times.

“No white male vote is being courted more vigorously than this one,” he said, pointing to himself. “There is no secret that both of these campaigns have sought my support.”

But that was not all.

Appearing via satellite from North Carolina was Barack Obama. Colbert took issue with Obama’s criticism of the recent debate’s “manufactured political distractions.”

They sparred a bit, and Obama eventually said, “Manufactured, manufactured political distractions, you are officially on notice!”
