Stephen Colbert Mocks Bill O'Reilly Claim That There's A 'Downside' To Having A Female President

Hillary Clinton's potential run in the 2016 presidential election has raised questions about her ability to lead. Fox News' Bill O'Reilly said in an interview that "there's got to be a downside" to having a female president because they have to deal with aggressive powers like Russia and Iran.

Colbert mocked O'Reilly's claim Wednesday night and wondered how a woman could ever do the job of president of the United States.

"There's gotta be a downside to a woman president. I mean, how is she going to press the nuclear launch button?" Colbert asked. "Everything in the Oval Office is penis-activated!"

Colbert said that there are just too many reasons why having a female president would be too complicated, and possibly jeopardize the safety of the country.

"Plus -- I don't want to get too technical or scientific -- but women sit down to pee," he pointed out. "If there's a terror attack, a man could just zip and go!"
