WATCH: Colbert Mocks Rubio for Wanting to Get Beers With 18-Year-Old Muslim Malala
Newly-minted GOP Golden Boy Marco Rubio is riding high as the latest establishment front-runner (despite not actually surging at all), but a recent gaffe has him in a bit of trouble. Last week, in response to the campaign staple "Who would you have a beer with?" question, Rubio responded by suggesting he wanted to have a beer with Malala Yousafzai, the 18-year-old Muslim education and human rights activist.
"It's all part of his strategy of appealing to young voters by hanging outside a liquor store. I believe America's best days are ahead of it" Colbert said, mimicking a creepy Rubio. "Do you kids want a six pack of natty ice?"
The Late Show host also played catch up with Ben Carson's recent string of bizarre lies, trying to make sense of why the famed neurosurgeon would make up a fake checkered past. It was a crazy weekend indeed; let Colbert make some sense of it.
