John Oliver, Stephen Colbert battle each other with wax president insults
John Oliver and Stephen Colbert apparently have a big interest in presidential wax figures—enough so that the hosts of Last Week Tonight and the Late Show, respectively, recently traveled to the Hall of Presidents and First Ladies museum in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania to bid on some presidential statues.
Oliver and HBO eventually won five of them, and he brought one along to Colbert’s show on Friday to battle the figure that the Late Show acquired. It was Oliver’s Warren G. Harding vs. Colbert’s Zachary Taylor, and the insult-fest was intense.
The insult battle featured references to syphilis of the heart, the Home Improvement children, and death by tender tummy, and it’s well worth your time.
At least the segment had a happy ending. Everything that ends with wax figures kissing and making up is just good TV.
