Colbert Mocks Sanders: ‘Doesn’t Seem Likely’ Is His Campaign Slogan
COLBERT: "It's a very exciting day, because today, in our nation's capital, Washington, D.C., they held the final presidential primary. We made it! We made it! Through the beginning! There are five more months. This was probably the last chance to see Bernie Sanders' name on a presidential ballot, and he's going out standing on principle and refusing to pander."
SANDERS [video]: "The major point that I will be making to the citizens of the District of Columbia is that I am strongly in favor of D.C. statehood."
COLBERT: "Yes. Of course, D.C. statehood doesn't seem likely, but 'doesn't seem likely' is Sanders' campaign slogan."
