Mitt Romney made headlines Thursday for saying that "Corporations are people" in response to a question about taxes at the Iowa state fair. While many people had a laugh at the gaffe, it was Stephen Colbert who came to Romney's defense on last night's "Report."
See, Colbert gets it. He's been saying for years that corporations are people, going so far as to suggest they remake "Guess Who's Coming To Dinner" with an oil rig. Who wouldn't see that?
Watch the segment below to hear Colbert explain the gravity of Romney's comment and how history will paint him as a new age civil rights activist.
