Stephen Colbert Mocks Marco Rubio in "Hungry for Power Games" Farewell
Marco Rubio's campaign was bid farewell on Stephen Colbert's latest "Hungry for Power Games" segment.
Colbert and his blue wig roasted Rubio, whom he described as the "last tribute fighting on behalf of the Establishment."
"Florida senator and boy whose birthday party your parents made you attend, Marco Rubio, has joined the ranks of the fallen," said Colbert. Rubio suspended his campaign after losing in his home state of Florida this week.
"For the record, Florida votes yes on Jimmy Buffet, yes on releasing pythons into toilets. On Marco Rubio? No thanks," said Colbert. He joked that Rubio was supposed to become the "Jeb Bush people liked" but instead "became the Jeb Bush."
Colbert referenced Trump throughout the farewell, saying that people shouldn't be alarmed that Tribute Trump is marching on to victory, although he himself is priming "the escape pod to the Forbidden Zone" just in case. He also half-joked that Rubio might end up getting the nomination anyway because "anything's possible at this point."
The real zinger came after Colbert showed a clip of Rubio's small hands insult to Trump. "You know what they say about men with small hands," said Rubio to the crowd. Colbert responded with a pouty face and a biting, "They win Florida?"
