Colbert: Finally, French 'Truffle Huffing Surrender Monkeys' Step Up in War on Terrorism

January 25, 2013

After mulling over Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton's testimony for a day, the late-night show hosts all weighed in. 

Jon Stewart mocked the Republicans for grandstanding and the Democrats for "ass kissery." He suggested that when Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-S.C., asked Clinton, "What does the word responsibility mean to you?" she should have just responded.

"Webster's defines responsibility as 'Go f@#$ yourself.' "

Stephen Colbert had to address the confrontation between Clinton and Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., or as he called it, "Hillary stomping on Ron's johnson."

But for today's must-see moment, fast-forward to 5:07 to see Colbert give props to the French for invading Northern Mali. Until now, Colbert said he had "always seen the French as truffle huffing surrender monkeys." But now they're using their most advanced weaponry on Islamist extremists. Fast-forward to find out what it is. Hint: It has to do with Dadaism.

Check out the best of the late-night show's political humor from last night...
