John Roberts' Betrayal Crushes Stephen Colbert (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

"J-Rob, how could you?"

Like many Republicans, Stephen Colbert was devastated at the news that Chief Justice John Roberts had turned his back on conservatives and voted to uphold the dreaded Obamacare. What was Colbert to make of such a drastic shift?

"Where's the man who said unlimited corporate money was speech? Where's the man who voted against equal pay for women? I don't even know who you are anymore."

The host then put an even finer point on the treachery: "This is the worst betrayal since Benedict Arnold teamed up with Judas to stab Caesar right in the croutons."

After taking in the disappointment, Colbert was left with only one thing to do: replace his Tiger Beat poster of Justice Roberts with one of Justice Scalia.

Check out the clip above, and then take a look at the follow-up segment below where Colbert warns of the terrifying precedent set by this ruling: "If Obama can force you to get health insurance just by calling it a tax, then there's nothing to stop him from making you gay marry an illegal immigrant wearing a condom in a hydroponic pot farm powered by solar energy."
