    Given all the yang comments you’d think there are people who would actually vote for him...
    I’m glad lots of polls back that up...

    "Why are you still popular?"
    "I don't know, I guess they don't me well enough yet."
    WHY would he think that was a good idea for an answer?! That was really a bad implication that in no way campaigns in his favor...what a weird answer.

    'Look at my record...' My Administration oversaw the US imperial destruction of: Libya, Syria, Yemen...the overthrow of the democratically elected gov't of Honduras, of Ukraine (of which my son received a crony, corporate patronage appointment)....My Administration gave some 20 trillion dollars or so to Wall St. (the very people who caused the 2008/9 economic crash...and nothing to working people)...In fact, stole the 20 trillion from them to give to US oligarchs. I am lying when I say universal medicare is 'unaffordable' (In fact, the only people for whom it is unaffordable are US capitalist oligarchs). I am totally the choice of the Democratic elite oligarchs who *want no substantive change whatsoever* (and who, having screwed the American working class for 8 years, produced the political and economic conditions ripe for a Trump ascendance in 2016). Yep, just 'look at my record'.

    Joe biden is a corporate sellout. Hes basically a republic with a (d) in front of his name.

    This is beyond pathetic. Compare and contrast the treatment Colbert gives Biden, to someone like Bernie. He just can't keep himself from telling the world what a hack he is. Yes Colbert we all know you got money, and we all know sucking up to the democratic establishment is supposed to give you some kind of social status. Is this really going to be worth it though when you see that you no longer have any friends because of it?

    Why don't you interview Andrew Yang and let him speak the same amount time? He will explain you the solutions that he's proposing to the same problems Biden mentioned. Biden actually copied all the things Andrew has been saying from the beginning.

    Bernie was on the show last night. Watch and listen to both candidates in these airings. One of them is ready. The other is clearly not.
    I just decided to look and the interview with Bernie already has more than 650k viewers. This one from three weeks ago is probably going to be stuck at the 537k it's at now. CNN tells you that Joe is the winner.

    Biden has the gift of saying alot, But not saying anything of meaning at the same time. He is all over the place.

    Mr. Yang, is that you? Politics ages you and makes you white too.
    Also, kinda wrong Colbert didn't call him out, oh well.

    So instead of backing Yang, Biden steals points of his campaign. Crooked! I wouldn't vote for him he already showing you he is willing to do whatever to win. Biden if you think Yang's ideas are good enough to use for your own interest, then just do the right thing for the people and endorse Yang. You know that's what needs to be done. Do the right thing!

    Think we can tell who Stephen supports. Good luck winning the election with only the left 40% of the bell spectrum. Sad to see, left wing populism, and all these newbies come to religion.

    Stealing an idea? Oh, are they copyrighted now? They SHOULD be sharing ideas. Get off of Joe's back for Chrissake! You don't want us centrists going off on the far Left candidates. War isn't going to help our common cause.

    I don't even need to watch this because I know Colbert will be kissing Biden's behind just like he did with Hillary. Colbert dislikes Trump because he is evil and a liar, not because of his policy positions for the most part. Welcome to Corporate Democrats who think everything is just fine - we just need another good guy like Obama in the WH.

    He will understand your problem but will never solve it @11:54. He himself said it. Are you actually going to elect him as president??!!!!

    Colbert’s body language is so open and loving toward Biden. Contrast this w his closed body language during Elizabeth Warren interview.

    There was a medical school dean stole other people's "personal story" as his own in PUBLIC speech, and resigned when graduates quickly found out from RU-clip. Anyway, Biden must have listened to Yang and deeply, sub-consciously agreed with Yang's words and vision, so why not Biden, with lots of influence and power, just help Yang if all your interest is with the American people?

    I really hoped he would say “I’m the opposite of Donald trump, an asian who likes math”

    This was Joe Biden’s best interview yet ... Steven Colbert handled it with grace and style and allowed him to show who Biden really is.

  • ForCryinOutLoud O'Neill

    WTF Colbert? You didn't call him out for stealing Yang's talking points? Jaysus.
    Also, why the fuck does Biden get almost a half hour but someone like Sanders who actually has FAR more interesting things to say gets bloody 10 minutes?
