Colbert Spars with Elizabeth Warren: ‘It’s Just More Socialism!’ (Mediaite)

It’s been more than four years since Elizabeth Warren first appeared on The Colbert Report and in the intervening time, her profile has risen remarkably. On Monday night, Warren and Stephen Colbert faced off over the ideas on inequality she puts forward in her new book, A Fighting Chance .

“You are welcome for the ‘Colbert Bump,’” the host said at the top of the interview, taking credit for Warren’s ascension to the Senate. In explaining her own story, Warren told Colbert about how she was able from humble beginnings, but that American dream became much more difficult sometime after Ronald Reagan became president.
