It’s not everyday you get the chance to see a politician looking ridiculous doing the wave for minutes on end.
It’s almost never (save for this time) that you get to see a politician doing the wave with one Stephen Colbert.
The wavy politician here is none other than Barbara “Don’t-call-me-Babs” Lee (D-Calif.), who represents District 13, which includes Oakland, Berkeley, and other portions of the East Bay.
The conversation, which was heralded as part of “The Colbert Report” segment called “Get To Know Your District”, was as uncomfortable as expected.
Colbert recruited Lee to join in on an absurdly long stadium wave (as it was apparently invented in Oakland), and questioned her about her “urban” involvement.
Check out the hilarious interview below.
