Stephen Colbert Tells Hillary Clinton: 'I Wish You Were Our President'


Hillary Clinton appeared on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" and received an unusually straightforward declaration of support.

Colbert told Clinton he had a gift for her, and proceeded to present a folder full of unused jokes from election night and a photo of naked men who had the "I'm With Her" slogan written across their butts.

After the jovial segment that found Clinton covering her eyes in full-on grandma fashion, Colbert got serious.

"I wish we could've told those jokes," he said. "I wish you were our president."

Clinton quietly responded, "Thank you."
