OMG we’re dying! Stephen Colbert delivered a post vice-presidential debate recap that absolutely slayed! He did a live show right after it all went down so he had a pretty quick turnaround. His hilarious monologue was right on point about how dull our two veep candidates are!
Way to kill it! Stephen Colbert, 52, has been so totally on top of Election 2016 that he made sure to watch the Oct. 4 Vice Presidential debate between Hillary Clinton’s running mate Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine, 58, and Donald Trump’s pick, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, 57, before going live with his opening monologue. Of course his jokes were so fresh and timely, and he was able to make fun of how boring their debate turned out to be.
When using a clip of moderator Elaine Quijano telling the audience to refrain from applause, Stephen chimed in with, “Muffle your yawns and silence your blinks.” But that wasn’t is only dig at how dull both candidates were. He gave it up for Mike appearing to be the victor, but in the most backhanded of ways. “They say these debates don’t matter and Hillary better hope so because it was like watching a loaf of white bread get pistol whipped by a jar of mayonnaise. Not a lot of flavor but there was a clear winner.”

Stephen referred to the debate as the “Battle of the Second Bananas” and immediately launched into hilarious jokes about Mike and the Religious Freedom law he signed as governor, which allows businesses to deny service to same-sex couples. He noted what a cultural conservative Mike is and how, “To be fair, as Jesus himself said, get out of my pizza parlor you queers.” Yikes!
He also made a hilarious and crude joke about Mike’s debate line about praying where he said, “I try and spend a little time on my knees every day.” Stephen responded, “Apparently Mike Pence is also very close with Vladimir Putin.” Badum-bum. He added for good measure, “Fair warning, Indiana businesses can now refuse to serve you,” referring back to Mike’s controversial law.
Stephen mocked Tim’s debate comparison of Donald Trump’s personal Mt. Rushmore consisting of various world dictators, saying that, “Oh come on, I have seem Trump’s personal Mount Rushmore and it is three Trump heads and one grimace.” He also noted how the candidates spend a ton of time writing throughout the debate and did a disclosure of what they were jotting down. He cut to Tim’s notepad reading “I Hate You” over and over while Mike’s said “Remember to have emotions.” Too funny!
HollywoodLifers, did YOU watch the vice-presidential debate? What did you think of Stephen’s monologue? Was he right on the money?
