Colbert v Hillary Clinton - What a Match!



“The Colbert Report” on Tuesday night, showcased one of the funniest moments of Hillary Rodham Clinton, as she did a surpreeze Pop-In for a name-dropping festival and some chortles.

A wry Stephen Colbert commenced the segment with an ascerbic review of the audio-book version of Clinton’s new book, “Hard Choices.” From MSNBC.

“This book is 656 pages of shameless name-dropping,” Colbert says, before listing off a handful of instances where Clinton mentions world leaders and singer Bono in the book. “I just don’t buy any of this. There is no way on Earth one woman can be in so many places at once!”


Then, Hillary Clinton, the former secretary of state,  walks on set … and the pair face off in a battle of the name-droppers.

From Carl Lafoon, commenter over at messnbc, a wise statement on political reality. Realism is not a Republican strong suit. And by goddess, they want everyone to know about it. Repeatedly.

She is not even running and she is clobbering the Republicans. We see examples of the Republican Party self destructing almost every day.

Today they refused to even address a FIX to the Border Issue.
They did agree to sue the President with details to be provided at a later date. The fact that they have no standing ie they were not injured seems to have evaded their logic.


Have a giggle, Comedy Central had the hilarious footage, via Hula and Morning Schmoe, here.


Then the conversation got even punnier, as only Colbert can execute flawlessly. They shared a few other One Uppers.

“I know Raffi. He’s such a cutup. Especially when we go camping with Oprah,” Colbert says.


“Oh, does that surprise you?” Colbert asks.

“No. ‘O’ is just what all her real friends call Oprah,” Clinton answers.


“I know Paul McCartney.”

“I will have you know, Madame, I once did an entire show with President Bill Clinton,” Colbert says.

“I hate to break this to you Stephen, but I’ve met him, too.”
