Colbert mocks LePage's "kiss my butt" comment on show

Late night talk show host Stephen Colbert took to task Maine Governor Paul LePage last night on his show, The Colbert Report, for his remarks on Friday regarding NAACP criticism.

“I applaud Gov. LePage. Before Dr. King came along, could anyone have imagined a white politician openly inviting a black person to kiss him? And without pants! That’s progress,” Colbert said.

Well deserved

This kind of statement is well deserved. LePage is an embarrassment and unwilling to admit his weaknesses. So long as he denies responsibility, he will continue to be disrespectful and embarrassing.

LePage a joke..

He has made us the butt of alot of ashamed he is our governor..4 years of this..and he probably thinks he's cute saying this..grow up man!!
