Stephen Colbert Mocks 'Human Weather Balloon Rush Limbaugh' On DNC Show (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Stephen Colbert continued his coverage of the Democratic National Convention on Thursday night, mocking conservative commentators who questioned Obama's motives for changing the venue for his speech.

Obama's speech was moved indoors to the Time Warner Cable Arena from the Bank of America stadium because of the chance of severe rainstorms.

Several conservative media personalities, however, argued that weather could not have been the reason for the move. Colbert replayed clips of Don Imus speculating that Democrats "moved it inside because they couldn't fill the stadium" and Charles Krauthammer insisting that the organizers "knew what the weather was gonna be months ago."

"Exactly," Colbert sarcastically agreed, because anybody can "check the 100-day forecast." He added that this wasn't the first fishy situation involving Obama and weather.

"Radio host and human weather balloon Rush Limbaugh blew the lid off of this last week when Hurricane Isaac threatened the GOP convention," Colbert said. He was referring to the radio host's theory that Obama was somehow responsible for the weather forecasts that canceled the first day of the Republican proceedings.
