Colbert's Guide to Watching Tonight's GOP Debate

Colbert's Guide to Watching Tonight's GOP Debate

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.

Back in March, when the pandemic had just planted its roots in the U.S., President Donald Trump directed the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to do something devastating: The agency was to indefinitely and cruelly suspend environmental rule enforcement. The EPA complied, and for just under half a year, it provided over 3,000 waivers that granted facilities clemency from state-level environmental rule compliance.

Hanako, a female Asian elephant, lived in a tiny concrete enclosure at Japan's Inokashira Park Zoo for more than 60 years, often in chains, with no stimulation. In the wild, elephants live in herds, with close family ties. Hanako was solitary for the last decade of her life.
