Stephen Colbert Mocks North Carolina Anti-LGBT Law With Gay Abraham Lincoln, Robert E Lee (Video)

“Late Show” host preaches togetherness in a way that only he can

Stephen Colbert won’t let North Carolina’s controversial “bathroom law” stop him from bringing “The Late Show” to his fans in that state.

Colbert appeared in a brief segment on his show Tuesday commenting on how musical acts like Bruce Springsteen and Pearl Jam have canceled concerts in the state over House Bill 2 (HB2) over provisions they find hostile to LGBT people, but Colbert says he will never deny his show to anyone.

“Even after the Civil War, great figures like Abraham Lincoln and Robert E. Lee believed this country could come together,” Colbert said, joined onscreen by performers dressed as both historical figures. Then things took a turn when Lincoln and Lee began making out like teenagers.
