Stephen Colbert wants to “venti” his anger about President Barack Obama’s “latte salute” and it’s “NOT because the coffee was black.”
What really gets Colbert’s conservative pundit character is the president’s sheer level of disrespect, when Obama gave the marines standing at attention a distracted salute — with a cup of coffee in the same hand — while rushing to the distinctly “un-American” United Nations to give his even less “American” climate change speech.
“Warning, warning, contents are hot!”
Oh, and Colbert takes care to show Karl Rove pointing out that Obama doesn’t even have the decency to drink COFFEE like a real American, he’s drinking CHAI for chrissakes!
Colbert bets it also had:
“a sprig of arugula in there, and was certified Halal by an undocumented gay Muslim barista.”
Meanwhile, “Not Gretchen” from Fox trots out the worst puns imaginable, as she rhetorically asks whether Obama’s “latte salute” signifies a “latte disrespect,” or a “latte do about nothing.”
