They’re all jokes.
The “Late Show” host was reacting to Biden’s bristling at a CNN reporter who questioned the president after the session with Putin in Geneva.
Then, doing a Biden impression, Colbert ripped off his suit jacket and shouted at an imaginary reporter to “Watch it, Mister!” and “Knock it off with the grab-a– and the horseplay. This isn’t a dog-and-pony show. Were you born in a barn? If you were, grab a pail and start milking the cows because they’re coming home to roost, Little Boy Blue! I fought in Korea!”
The liberal late-night host was referring to Biden snapping at CNN reporter Kaitlan Collins, who asked the president why he was “confident” Putin would change his behavior following their meeting in Switzerland.
Colbert called the meeting between Biden, 78, and Putin, 68, the “Boniva in Geneva.” Boniva is used to treat osteoporosis.
Biden, who was walking away after saying he was committed to freeing Americans imprisoned in Russia, whirled around at Collins and said, “I’m not confident he’ll change his behavior. What in the hell, what do you do all the time?”
