Stephen Colbert: ‘Let the Rich Start Their Own Country’

Wherever organized government has existed, so has political satire. On Monday, Stephen Colbert took on the “startling disparity in America’s wealth.” Rather than using a pie chart to illustrate the issue, Colbert portrayed a disgusting pie eating contest where the obscene rich gobble up the best and spit out the rest.

“Sometimes income brackets just drift apart,” said Colbert. He recommended — in a way that only excruciatingly honest political satire can do — that the rich start their own county, called “America Plus.” The newly formed America Plus will still maintain normal diplomatic relations with poor America and hire us as “cheap foreign labor.” Watch the video below and enjoy Colbert at his best!
