I don’t know how this happened, but somehow Stephen Colbert ended up testifying before the House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Immigration, Citizenship, Refugees, Border Security, and International Law. I first became aware of this breaking news while on the elliptical machine at Planet Fitness. Unfortunately, the TV was on mute, so I Googled it.
After spending a day working with migrant field workers in Upstate New York as part of a segment for his daily program, Colbert testified in character, saying his experience was “really hard” and gave him a small understanding of “why so few Americans are clamoring to begin an exciting career as Seasonal Migrant Field Workers.”
This may be a fake-news bit for his show taken a little too far, or it may be a lead up to Colbert ’s October ‘March to Keep Fear Alive,’ which I will be attending. Some protested that Colbert’s appearance made a mockery of our Legislative system as he literally mocked our legislative system. But lighten up. We all know the House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Immigration, Citizenship, Refugees, Border Security, and International Law has always been a rascally bunch.
