Colbert Won’t Look Directly At MSNBC When Watching GOP Presidential Debate (VIDEO)


Stephen Colbert admitted on Thursday that all the political coverage leading up to this week has been “bullshit.” But now that Labor Day has passed — when, Colbert said, we trade our white pants for white candidates — every bit of coverage is “crucial, life-or-death stuff.”So, begrudgingly, Colbert did what he said most Americans would find shameful: he watched the Republican presidential debate on MSNBC.

“Of course, I didn’t look directly at the screen,” he said. “Like the solar eclipse, I watched through a pin hole in a piece of cardboard.”

What did Colbert think? Well, suffice it to say, Colbert’s a big fan of Herman Cain’s idea for a “Chilean model.”
