Stephen Colbert on Democratic debate, Bernie Sanders' Hillary Clinton comment

Posted on


Though the Democratic debate didn’t provide the same sound bite-worthy squabbles as the last Republican debate, Stephen Colbert proved on Wednesday night’s episode of The Late Show that there were still some standout moments.

One of the more memorable quotes from the debate was Bernie Sanders’ attempt to dodge party politics by saying that Americans were “sick and tired” of hearing about Clinton’s email scandal. Colbert said it was Clinton’s most quoted moment of the night, made more impressive because “it came out of Bernie Sanders’ mouth.”

“You know your debate was pretty uneventful when the banner headline the next day is: ‘Elderly man not interested in email,’ ” Colbert joked.

Watch the clip above to see the rest of Colbert’s democratic debate coverage as well as a Bill Clinton tweet which proved he was definitely not doing anything outside of his hotel room in Las Vegas.
