Stephen Colbert: Winners of Iowa Caucuses 'Probably Did It By Sucking Up to Big Corn'

Politics

Stephen Colbert discussed the Iowa caucuses on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night. Although the show was filmed before the caucuses took place, the Late Show host had some predictions on who the winners would be.

"We know one thing, whoever wins tonight probably did it by sucking up to big corn, okay, nature's gold," Colbert said. "Because the big issue in Iowa is always corn subsidies. That's why in the last 20 years Iowa has received nearly $25 billion in farm subsidies ... and while I may not know who has won, I am celebrating the Iowa spirit tonight by eating foods only made by high fructose corn syrup."
