Stephen Colbert took on Mitt Romney and his inability to connect or relate with regular working class Americans. Speaking of Romney’s speech at a fundraiser on July 16th, Colbert said, Romney once and for all dispelled his image of a “detached, tone-deaf, body-snatching pond creature.”
At the Mississippi fundraiser, Romney told wealthy donors that: “I know that people in this room are probably doing relatively well … but not everyone in America is doing so well right now … the waiters and waitresses that come in and out of this room and offer us refreshments, they’re not having a good year.”
“I’m guessing their year felt worse and worse as the night went on,” Colbert noted. “That’s how a candidate connects with the average people. There’s nothing blue collar Joes like more than having their struggles pointed out in a room full of rich people they are serving.”
