Colbert Grills Henry Kissinger, Puts Transgender Rumors To Rest (VIDEO)

Colbert took on the White House's appointment of transgender woman, Amanda Simpson, last night. What irked him was not the decision itself, as he firmly stated that it's none of his "business if you want to switch stuff out down there like a Mr. Potato Head."

What struck Colbert was that Democratic officials said that they're unsure if Simpson is the first transgender appointee. He asked, "Who knows what our government has been tucking and hiding from us?"

With this revelation, Colbert felt that every presidential appointee is now under suspicion, notably Henry Kissinger. Joining him from a green screen from three years ago, Colbert "grilled" the former presidential advisor, and put the transgender rumors to rest.

What a bombshell that guy just dropped. And he has dropped a lot of bombshells in his day.
