What does Stephen Colbert think about yesterday’s Supreme Court ruling on marriage equality? He came to us straight from his offices at the Late Show to say, “Congratulations, gays.” 

In a video titled “June Is a Lovely Time For a Wedding,” Colbert (sans Colbeard) talked about the ruling and the dissenting vote in the Supreme Court. He then zooms in on Justice Scalia’s “fiery dissent,” and uses a fortune cookie to great effect.
