Colbert Shows Hillary How You Really Break a Glass Ceiling
On Day 2 of the Democratic National Convention, Hillary Clinton officially became the Democratic nominee. But the organizers didn’t seem to get the metaphor just right. “Hillary Clinton appeared at the convention by breaking the glass, uh, wall?” Stephen Colbert, host of “The Late Show” asked.
“Let’s help her out here,” Colbert offered. “Let’s break the glass ceiling.” And in New York, the ceiling on Colbert's set seemed to shatter.
Colbert also had some fun at the expense of Bill Clinton, who is set to be the "First Ladies Man," and gave a shout out to Michelle Obama's great speech Monday night, while amplifying her clever dig at Trump.
“I want someone with the proven strength to persevere, someone who knows this job and takes it seriously, someone who knows that the issues the president faces is not black and white and cannot be boiled down to 140 characters,” Michelle Obama said Monday night.
“Oh that’s really good. I’m gonna tweet that right now,” Colbert remarked.
