Honestly, Abe, you’re pretty funny.
After watching the debate with “The Late Show” host Stephen Colbert on Monday, the “ghost” of former President Abraham Lincoln noted that personal attacks were also a part of his famous debates with Stephen Douglas in 1858.
“Douglas called me a muckspout gobbermouch and I said point blank that his mother was a short-legged donkey fondler,” an animated Abe told Colbert in a clever opening bit.
Lincoln was happy to discover that we had a black president but spit out his drink when told the commander in chief is a Democrat.
Watch the video above ― and don’t blame Abe for his strong reaction when Colbert says he has to get to the theater to do the live show.
