Gardner Gets Mercilessly Mocked on “Tonight Show”

Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Yuma) was introduced to a national late-night audience when he was lampooned in a caricature on “The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon” on Monday.

An actor portraying Gardner appeared during host Jimmy Fallon’s monologue to “answer” a few questions about the Republican tax plan approved by the Senate in the early hours on Saturday. Fallon asks the mock Gardner several questions about who benefits from the GOP tax plan; in response, Gardner’s character mutters a bunch of nonsensical phrases, such as “tax breaks” for “dolphinfluffin” and “gastrointestinal strudel noodle.” The joke is that Gardner cannot actually articulate concrete reasons for supporting the Senate tax plan — which, of course, is not that far removed from reality.

    Now that is some high-class glibberish:

    "Choreographed dolphin fluffin'".

     "Our bill cuts the tax rate for anyone who nerd twertle covfefe Kardashians".

    He may not look much like Cowardly Lyin', but his glibberish is spot-on.
