Watch Stephen Colbert Explain Why We Have To Help Kanye West

Of the many, many puzzling things that Kanye West has said and done in the past few weeks, perhaps the most puzzling has been the announcement that he has $53 million in personal debut, followed by the campaign to get Mark Zuckerberg to give him a billion dollars. This sort of thing should be a godsend to every late-night host, but as far as I know, the only one who’s really bitten is Stephen Colbert. Colbert had fun going in on West on last night’s episode of the Late Show. Best line: “He shall overcome. After all, I believe it was Martin Luther King who said, ‘Please give me $53 million.'” Watch the bit below.

Many of us have already made some of those exact same jokes, but somehow it’s still funny to hear Colbert tell them.
