14. That's one thing about Stephen Colbert, he absolutely keeps up with the latest news

You could tell from the pointed questions he put to Rachel - and he even mentioned that senator challenging the labor leader to a fight and how Bernie Sanders shut him down, which had just happened!

I remember one time that there was breaking news while Colbert was taping his monologue - think it was the announcement of TFG's first meeting with Kim Jong-Un, the dictator he "loves" - so Colbert scrapped his scripted monologue and ad libbed the rest. He takes great pride in keeping up and it certainly showed last night in his interview with Rachel, which was basically the entire show.
