Colbert aired a clip of CNN’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.
“There it is! They’ve got an extra podium just in case Biden drops by! Like you do. You know. This year’s Presidential Debates are basically an open mic night. Could be Joe Biden. It could be Carrot Top.”
Imagine how exciting it would be if Biden joined at the last second. It’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 “if only” machine to rev up the anticipation and excitement of an imaginary Joe Biden entrance. This get’s pretty intense, y’all.
Jim Acosta: “Vice President Joe Biden: will he or won’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 on… I can see a situation where he pulls in in that yellow Corvette with the aviators on and says: ‘Let’s do this thing.’ Uhh, it’ll be fun to watch. Would be fascinating political television if the Vice President decides to join him.”
“Joe Biden — will he or won’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 on… You could see a situation… where he pulls in in that yellow Corvette.”
Tune in tomorrow to see if Biden shows up here. After all, there’s no way in hell he’s gonna be at that debate.”
