Every once in a while, Stephen Colbert likes to give a shout-outside to the human beings who alter our earth for the bigger in a segment called “Difference Makers.” This week, however, Colbert got sidetracked by his “difference maker” being an apparent vampire — and CNN anchor Don Lemon’s refusal to blow the lid off the tale.
On Wednesday night’s “Report,” Colbert started to give props to Patrick Rodgers, the Philadelphia male who sued his bank and won, until Colbert noticed what gaze like fangs in Rodgers’ mouth during his interview with Lemon. Startled and riled up, Colbert watched the footage with hopes that Lemon would expose Rodgers for being a vampire, however alas. Lemon finished the interview, and Colbert “left the studio” to crash Lemon’s broadcast and call him outside on it.
After berating Lemon on a fake CNN locate and accusing him of turning Rodgers into “the Jackie Robinson of vampires,” Colbert got some insight from ancient-college reporter Dan Rather on how to handle tales about the undead. Not surprisingly, Rather knows quite a bit.
With Rather’s aid, Colbert attempts to “blow the coffin lid” off the tale once and for all and interview Rodgers for himself. Watch the entire hilarious body unfold in the video below.
