Stephen Colbert traveled to Delaware to meet President-elect Joe Biden and the new First Lady Dr. Interviewing Jill Biden for Thursday’s Late Show. First he asked what President Biden “will bring into the world”. Biden noted that America is deeply divided but said, “I think the nation – and I don’t think I’m kidding myself, I was criticized from the start for saying that – I think the nation is looking after a union. ” We don’t have to have that. Politics has become like that, somehow, dirty and vicious and personal and mean and clenched fist instead of an open hand. And I think people are looking for us to get together. “Colbert asked Biden if he took it personally that so many Republicans” didn’t recognize your victory, “and Biden said no.” Look, you’re in a tough spot, “he said.” Some of them got me four before Weeks sent the following messages: ‘Give me time, Joe. Give me some time.’ It’s fine with me, it’s fine with me We won! We won Georgia three times. “Colbert pointed to Sen. Lindsey Graham (RS.C.), who he noted said some really nice things about Biden.” Do you think you can fix it and work together? “He asked.” Lindsey was one personal disappointment because I was a personal friend of his. “Biden said.” But look, I think I can work with the Republican leadership in the House and Senate. I think we can get things done. And I think when this president is out of office you will see its effects. The politics of the body will fade, and a lot of these Republicans will feel like they have a lot more room to run and work together. “” Is there anything about your predecessor, the current president, for which you could sincerely thank him? “Asked Colbert.
