When American politics starts to go off the rails, at least we have Stephen Colbert in our corner. Considering the fact that this election season has been nothing but off-the-rails madness, Colbert's been pretty busy. But Rudy Giuliani peddling Trump-approved conspiracy theories about Hillary Clinton's health? There's always enough time to shade those rumors.
"Rudy Giuliani says just diagnose Hillary on the internet," Colbert said on Tuesday's Late Show. "Because if it's on the internet, you know it's true. For instance, I put my symptoms into WebMD and found out I have started menopause. That's why we keep it so cold in here." Still, Colbert decided to take Giuliani at his word and Googled "Hillary Clinton illness," only to find something Giuliani probably hadn't predicted.
"The very first result is 'Giuliani fuels Clinton health rumors again and again,'" Colbert said. "So here's what's happening. Giuliani says, 'She's not healthy, look it up on the internet.' And when you look it up on the internet, it says that Giuliani says she's not healthy and to look it up on the internet! It's an endless loop. It's like a snake with its tail in its mouth, or a man with his head up his own ass."
To prove the raw power of Googling for all the olds out there, Colbert then referenced a vintage clip of Giuliani and Trump that's thankfully just a click away. "You're going to want to verify that video," Colbert told his audience. "Just go online and put down 'Donald Trump Rudy Giuliani drag queen motorboat.'" The video in question, which features Trump placing his face into Giuliani's chest, is taken from the 2000 edition of the Inner Circle Show:
Isn't politics fun?
