Stephen Colbert highlighted possibly the most outlandish state legislator elected in the midterms on Wednesday’s “The Colbert Report.”
Gordon Klingenschmitt, the host of a YouTube program called “Pray in Jesus Name” and a newly minted Republican Colorado state representative, expresses extreme anti-LGBT beliefs on his show and often performs on-air “exorcisms” to force “demonic spirits” out of the people he criticizes.
As Colbert put it, “everyone could use a little Klingenschmitt exorcism” — from atheists to a former FCC chairman to the President himself.
“Yes, Obama is possessed by a demon. And he won’t even show us the demon’s birth certificate,” Colbert quipped.
