Stephen Colbert Creates Perfect Joe Biden Fan Fiction on The Late Show

Screen Shot 2015-10-13 at 9.48.05 AMWhile the world eagerly turns its eyes to Las Vegas tonight for the CNN Democratic debate (OK, maybe only 10 million people or so), Stephen Colbert presented the perfect scenario for Vice President Joe Biden to make a surprise return visit to the show.

While the hosts at CNN may be overdramatizing the potential for a Biden surprise appearance at tonight’s debate, Colbert rolled out his own Biden podium just in case. Colbert presented a clip of CNN’s Joe Acosta, who eagerly described a scenario where the Vice President might appear:

“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.”

Colbert launched into his own fanfic version of how Biden would similarly appear back on The Late Show set instead. He finished with, “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.”

Watch the above clip from CBS.
