Stephen Colbert took on “bathroom bills” like the sweeping anti-LGBT law in North Carolina during “The Late Show” on Tuesday, calling out the “weirdos” who insist on regulating bathroom use.
“I don’t care if you’re male or female, what sex or gender identity someone is,” Colbert said. “I — and I mean this sincerely — do not want to share a bathroom with anyone. Okay? For two reasons: number one and number two,” Colbert said.
“When I am forced to use a public bathroom — which is infrequently, thank god — I go in there with blinders on. I don’t know who’s next to me. It could be a centaur next to me for all I know,” he continued. “I don’t even like to look at myself in the mirror afterwards. I know what I did. I’m there for a surgical strike, get in, get out, minimal casualties.”
He proposed some different rules for public bathrooms instead, such as a ban on chit chat.
He concluded by bashing the Republican lawmakers pushing bills that prevent transgender people from using the bathroom that corresponds to their gender identity.
“And to all those lawmakers out there who are so obsessed with who’s using what bathroom and what plumbing they got downtown: Newsflash — you’re the weirdos!” Colbert said.
