Rep. Gwen Moore Gets Colbert Treatment In 'Better Know A District,' Hilarity Ensues (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Stephen Colbert sat down with Rep. Gwen Moore, a congresswoman who represents Wisconsin's 4th District, for the latest installment of his 434-part series Better Know a District on "The Colbert Report."

Reportedly, members of Congress have been advised against appearing on Better Know a District, as Colbert's razor-sharp wit often gets the best of the politicians and they end up looking less than stately. But based on this interview, Rep. Moore is the kind of person we'd happily see guest on "Colbert" more often.

She totally holds her own with Colbert, playfully attacking him as a "rich white man" as he questions whether the fact that she is a black woman who sometimes gets angry makes her an "angry black woman," among other jabs.

He also asks her about fellow Wisconsinites Scott Walker ("Great governor, or greatest governor?") and Paul Ryan, two men (and political opponents) with whom Moore has extensive professional relationships.

Be sure to watch part 2 below as well, which features an improvisation between Colbert and the congresswoman in which he plays the role of her bad boy, motorcycle-riding boyfriend. (It's kind of amazing.)
