WATCH: Colbert Roasts Rubiobot Debate Flop

After making a very Ben Carson-like entrance, Stephen Colbert predicted a New Hampshire primary bloodbath on Monday night's show.


"The presidential race has truly become a flaming toboggan ride toward dead man's curve, otherwise known as New Hampshire primary," he said. "Following Iowa, Marco Rubio wouldn't let us forget that he won by coming in third… that is until Saturday night's GOP debate."

"It's February 8 and apparently both of these guys are still celebrating Groundhog Day," Colbert quipped.
Chris Christie's latest endorsement was from Cake Boss. Insert obvious joke here. 
And now, Colbert:
