WATCH: Colbert Hilariously Mocks Rand Paul's Ridiculous Flight from Immigrant Woman

Stephen Colbert took aim at Rand Paul's absurdly cowardly behavior upon meeting an immigrant woman at a fundraiser this week. He ran away. He fled the second she mentioned that she was a "Dreamer," or undocumented immigrant, and she had a question. The mainstream media has it wrong, Colbert protested. "He wasn't side-stepping. He was away-running."


Colbert loves the Paul family political dynasty, Papa Ron, Son Rand, and cousin Ru. (Haha, get it?)

More proof that Rand is committed to reaching out to Hispanics. "He dressed like a pinata," Colbert said, referring to Paul's brightly striped shirt.

Colbert finishes hilariously by introducing the Rand Paul-eo Diet. "You can eat what you want," the comedian says. "Then we send a Mexican to your meal." 

It's a surefire way to keep the pounds off, since it is hard to eat while you are fleeing. Watch:
