Colbert: Romney Insults Working Class Americans In Front Of Wealthy Donors
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.”
