Anderson Cooper joined Stephen Colbert after Colbert awkwardly threw to him in the Green Room while Anderson was enjoying a Bud Light and a piece of bread.
Anderson later joined Stephen on the couch and Stephen tried to help Anderson overcome his discomfort with “bro-hugs”.
“I don’t do well with a bro-hug. It makes me nervous. I feel they’re awkward. You touch shoulders with someone? On what planet is that at all satisfying?”
Anderson then said he’s just an elfin version of Stephen, which led to a discussion of Anderson’s obsession with Dungeons & Dragons, an interest which has continued into adulthood, and a discussion of the political panel Anderson speaks to about the election every night.
Demands Colbert: “Admit now. You think half of them are bats**t crazy!”
Also on the agenda: Anderson’s home he built in Brazil, the Olympics, and porn on TV.
Colbert then got into Trump, the presidential debates, and campaign surrogates as well as Corey Lewandowski, Trump’s former campaign manager who is now working at CNN.
Asks Colbert: “So ya’ll are paying him, and Trump is paying him, but he’s on your show doing analysis for a man he still gets cash from?”
Responds Anderson: “Pretty much. Yeah, I guess that’s one way to look at it….I mean, yes.”
