“The Late Show” host on Wednesday said it was hard for him not to take California Sen. Kamala Harris’ and Montana Gov. Steve Bullock’s decisions to drop out of the race “a little personally” because they’d both recently had “memorable” appearances on his show.
“I am officially the Democratic primary kiss of death,” Colbert joked before delivering a zinger to one of the low-polling candidates still in the race: “But if I’m going to be a jinx, I might as well use it to help America. John Delaney, come on this show.”
