After reporting that House Republicans were threatening to effectively shut down the government if Obamacare is not defunded, Colbert pronounced Obamacare dead.
He then celebrated with an homage to Miley Cyrus‘s VMA performance, with the Grim Reaper as Robin Thicke. It might not've been as spectacular as Colbert's tribute to the other Song of the Summer, Daft Punk's “Get Lucky,” but it was pretty close.
After twerking on the Reaper, Colbert put his foam finger away and issued a “maybe.” It'll depend on if Democrats are willing to give House Republicans what they're demanding — and that's pretty unlikely, to say the least.
