Watch: Why Stephen Colbert Is Baffled by Hillary's Outreach to Millennials

Election '16
All presidents celebrated yesterday were "equally good," according to Stephen Colbert, who also reminds us that we will soon be celebrating one of the candidates running for president today "with a half-off mattress sale."
This time last year, everyone was positive the next president would be Hillary Clinton (just like they thought Jeb Bush would be the GOP frontrunner). Now, she's still reeling from being trounced by Bernie Sanders in New Hampshire last week. Sanders won 83% of young voters. The only group Hillary Clinton won was voters over 65. 
"She may not have won NEW Hampshire, but she definitely won OLD Hampshire," concludes Colbert. Hillary's team responded by putting a new ad on AOL, which may have worked as a strategy two decades ago, but really, who uses AOL anymore?
