Stephen Colbert worries about RNC Chair Reince Priebus’ ‘very specific’ Baileys and cereal denial

On Thursday’s Late Show, Stephen Colbert sat down with a bowl of Lucky Charms and some Baileys Irish Cream to digest the latest in the presidential race. “If you’re following the news, you know that the 2016 Republican primary toboggan ride is rapidly approaching the oak tree of their summer convention.” But the man most worried about the upcoming convention must be Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus (whose name is an anagram for “Crisp Bee Urine”).

When asked about the crazy election season, Priebus told CNN he was fine with it, saying, “I’m not pouring Baileys in my cereal, I’m not sitting here trying to find a Johnnie Walker.” Stephen has to point out that “‘I’m not pouring Baileys on my cereal’ is a very specific reference for something you’re not doing.”

Just to make sure Priebus is okay, Colbert asks him to confirm that he’s not “using Jägermeister as a salad dressing” or “huffing ether out of a Scooby Doo gym sock.” Then in honor of Priebus, Colbert treats himself to a little Baileys and Lucky Charms, “or, as I like to call it, an Irish continental breakfast.”

Watch below to see Tom Hanks enjoy the apparently tasty concoction, too.
