Stephen Colbert can finally bid farewell to Bernie Sanders in penultimate ‘Hungry for Power Games’

"In the end, he received over 12 million votes and won 22 states. And he stayed in the race so long after being mathematically eliminated he also won the state of denial."

Stephen Colbert bid a fond farewell to Bernie Sanders in what will be the last Hungry for Power Games before the election in November. Sanders endorsed Hillary Clinton as the Democratic candidate Tuesday after a long battle in which he rose from obscurity to popularity and “became popular with his platform of giving everyone everything they want.”

“Back in April of 2015, Bernie announced his candidacy to a tiny crowd and half of them thought he was the instructor for tai chi in the park,” Colbert joked.

“So, Bernie has fallen, and like many seniors, he cannot get up,” Colbert said, but not before acknowledging that Bernie “excited young voters with his pure sex appeal. He had bedroom eyes and bedroom head. Soon he was filling stadiums! He was like the Rolling Stones, only younger.”

“In the end, he received over 12 million votes and won 22 states. And he stayed in the race so long after being mathematically eliminated he also won the state of denial,” said Colbert.

He then raised his glass and messed up his wig to say, “Farewell, Bernie! No one else expressed the frustrations of so many Americans without blaming it on Mexicans or Muslims.”
