Stephen Colbert Rips CNN for 'Extra Podium' for Biden at Democratic Debate

Stephen Colbert took time last night on the Late Show to mock the media hype over Joe Biden entering the presidential race. For the last several weeks, the media has been obsessing over whether Joe Biden will or won't enter the 2016 race. And now CNN is setting up a podium for the vice president just in case he decides to make a last minute appearance at the Democratic debate tonight.

Watch what Colbert has to say. It's hilarious!

Many of the sea turtles were transported by land or air to partner facilities around the Eastern Seaboard for longer-term care to make room for more incoming, cold-stunned animals.
