Stephen Colbert Stomps All Over Fox News' 'Boots On The Ground' Coverage

WARNING: Some shoes may have been harmed in the making of this "Colbert Report" segment.

Will there or will there not be boots on the ground in Iraq? Whatever the answer, Fox News is flat-out furious about it. But as far as Stephen Colbert is concerned, there's no question at all: "Of course there won't be American boots on the ground, our shoes are all made in China."

Apparently, Fox News thought it could bring a little clarity to the topic of war with ISIS by having an expert explain that not all boots are created equal, much to Colbert's delight. "That is the type of in-depth reporting you can only get from Fox News ... or Zappos," Colbert noted.

Colbert takes Fox News absurd "boot" report, and raises them every other kind of shoe.

"The Colbert Report" airs Monday-Thursday at 11:30 p.m. ET on Comedy Central.
