Colbert's Guide to Watching Tonight's GOP Debate

Politics

We are now a little less than a year away from the 2016 presidential election and as Stephen Colbert said on Monday's Late Show, "It's only 11 months until voters start paying attention."

He couldn't help but take a jab at third place democratic candidate and former governor of Maryland Martin O'Malley for being identified in a Wall Street Journal photo as an "unidentified man."

Next, Colbert had fun talking about tonight's GOP debate. He started off with Sen. Marco Rubio's answer to a question at a town hall meeting asking him who's the one person you'd like to sit down with and have a beer. And then, of course, he dug deep into the bizarre Ben Carson stories that have emerged.

Authorities in Hong Kong intercepted some questionable cargo three years ago — a rather large shipment of shark fins that had originated in Panama. Shark fins are a hot commodity among some Asian communities for their use in soup, and most species are legally consumed in Hong Kong, but certain species are banned from international trade due to their extinction risk. And wouldn't you know it: this confiscated shipment contained nearly a ton of illegal hammerhead fins.
