Another day of the Democratic National Convention, another host of cringey moments for Stephen Colbert to sink his teeth into.
During a live monologue on Tuesday, the Late Show host picked apart everything from AOC’s speech getting cut off by loud music (“she didn’t have a chance to thank her agent and her publicist!”) to Bill Clinton’s thoughts on what’s currently going on in the Oval Office (“I don’t think Bill Clinton gets to lecture anyone on what should happen in the Oval Office — those in glass houses should not be allowed near the interns.”).
Later, he turned his attention to Jill Biden, including the slightly unnerving story from her grandkids about how Jill likes to bring dead snakes home to scare people, followed by Joe Biden’s remark about the kind of “First Lady, Lady, Lady, Lady” she’ll be.
“No, Joe!” yells Colbert. “If you say ‘lady’ four times in a mirror, Jill Biden shows up behind you with a dead snake!”
