Steny Hoyer Thinks Stephen Colbert Embarrassed Himself


Well, not everyone enjoyed Stephen Colbert’s testimony before Congress last week. “I think it was an embarrassment for Mr. Colbert more than the House,” House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, a Maryland Democrat, said on Fox News Sunday this morning. “What he had to say was not the way it should have been said.” Steve King, a Republican from Iowa, said: “I think that he mocked the hearing process,” which seems to miss the point. But leave it to Nancy Pelosi to have a sense of humor about this sort of thing. “He comes before the committee, he has a point of view, he can bring attention to an important issue like immigration,” the House Speaker said. “I think it’s great.” [NYDN]
