Stephen Colbert on the Most Scandalous 2016 Presidential Election Projection Yet

Posted on Feb 27, 2014

Fox News and other conservative outlets have uncovered Hillary Clinton’s age, rehashing the age-old question with a misogynist twist: How old is too old to run for president? And even though Clinton would be the same age during the election as Reagan was before he started his first term, those were “man years,” the pundit explained on Wednesday night’s “Colbert Report.”

The incredibly sensitive and attractive Rush Limbaugh also spurs the question: “Do you want to see [Hillary Clinton’s] face age in office?” Fascinating how these digits have suddenly become so important to the American public, simply because a woman may run for office in 2016. One thing’s for sure, as Colbert points out: No one ever needs to see Limbaugh’s face ever again, lest they gag as the late night show host did.
