‘Are You Intoxicated Right Now?’: Colbert Slaughters Lochte in Late Show ‘Interview’

Screen Shot 2016-08-23 at 2.00.57 PMStephen Colbert wasted no time going after Ryan Lochte.

In the open of Monday’s Late Show, Colbert parodied Matt Lauer‘s sitdown with the swimmer by cutting footage of the interview together with Colbert asking new questions — all of which poked fun at Lochte for either being drunk, stupid, or both.

“Let me ask you this, Ryan,” Colbert said. “Do you know what a gun is?”

Then Colbert pointed a banana at Lochte and said “Is this a gun?”

Colbert asked how Lochte could be so inaccurate in his account of the incident.

Without a gun cocked at your forehead, it’s really just a story about some guys urinating on a gas station. How could you get that so wrong?

I was intoxicated.

Okay. But on Sunday, when you told that story to Billy Bush, it was hours after the incident.

I was still intoxicated.

Okay. But on Wednesday, you told Matt Lauer again that you were robbed. That was another three days later.

I was very intoxicated.

Ryan…Are you intoxicated right now?

Lochte didn’t “respond” but for a guilty look, and Colbert proceeded to shine a flashlight in his eyes.
