Colbert Imagines What Could Happen If Joe Biden Shows Up [VIDEO]

Colbert aired a clip of CNNโ€™s Jim Acosta who’s ready with an extra podium in case Vice President Joe Biden happens to show up in Las Vegas for the CNN Debate at the last minute.

โ€œThere it is! Theyโ€™ve got an extra podium just in case Biden drops by! Like you do. You know. This yearโ€™s Presidential Debates are basically an open mic night. Could be Joe Biden. It could be Carrot Top.โ€

Imagine how exciting it would be if Biden joined at the last second. Itโ€™s almost as exciting as Lincoln Chafee is about the metric system. But thanks to the awesome that is CNN, Jim Acosta turned on his patented โ€œif onlyโ€ machine to rev up the anticipation and excitement of an imaginary Joe Biden entrance. This getโ€™s pretty intense, yโ€™all.

Jim Acosta: โ€œVice President Joe Biden: will he or wonโ€™t he? Will the Airforce Two suddenly start flying this way, start flying westward toward Las Vegas on Tuesday night in a dramatic landing at McCarran International Airport with a speeding motorcade over to the hotel. Biden with the aviator glasses put onโ€ฆ I can see a situation where he pulls in in that yellow Corvette with the aviators on and says: โ€˜Letโ€™s do this thing.โ€™ Uhh, itโ€™ll be fun to watch. Would be fascinating political television if the Vice President decides to join him.โ€

โ€œJoe Biden โ€” will he or wonโ€™t he? Will Air Force two suddenly start flying this way, flying Westward towards Las Vegas Tuesday night in a dramatic landing at McCarren International Airport? The speeding motorcade over to the Wynn Hotel? Biden with the Aviator glasses put onโ€ฆ You could see a situationโ€ฆ where he pulls in in that yellow Corvette.โ€

Tune in tomorrow to see if Biden shows up here. After all, thereโ€™s no way in hell heโ€™s gonna be at that debate.โ€
