Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert took some comedic shots at Russian President Vladimir Putin Thursday.
At the beginning of his show, Colbert unfriended Putin from Facebook because of a picture of the Russian President posted at the Drudge Report.
STEPHEN COLBERT: Folks, you know me, I don't anger easily. You have to do something really unforgivable like disagree with me. Well, tonight I got a bee in my babushka about President Vladimir Putin. He has written an anti-American editorial in today's the New York Times.
Folks, it's not just in the Times, it's been reprinted everywhere. It even made the front page of the Drudge Report, and I was shocked to see the picture they ran with it. Here he is with his dirty vodka-stained hands all over old glory.
Hmm, hmm. Where have I seen that picture before? Oh yeah, it's my promo shot from when I started this show. Yeah. They just put Putin’s head on my body, and cut off my arm. My arm. I kid, oh, okay. I couldn't even figure out how they got that photo. Clearly Putin’s been stealing pictures from my Facebook page. Excuse me. Unfriend, all right.
