Colbert Crowns Himself the First Lady of France After Attending WH Dinner

Stephen Colbert could not contain his excitement Wednesday night over being invited to the White House state dinner last night, finding himself accidentally complimenting President Obama instead of bashing him like normal because he was just that honored and blown away by the event. He showed off his swag bag and even apparently stole the official White House gravy boat.

But more importantly, you’ll recall that there was quite a bit of hubbub over who French President Francois Hollande would be bringing to the dinner, because the foreign First Lady at the state dinner normally sits next to Michelle Obama. Well, who sat next to her last night?

Yep, Stephen Colbert.

And so, with a heavy heart, Colbert humbly declared himself to be the next First Lady of France. First order of business: no more bread for Jean Valjean.
