Colorado was a big topic of discussion on the TBS comedy show “Full Frontal With Samantha Bee” on Wednesday. If you haven’t already seen it, you need to stop whatever you are doing and watch the full six-minute bit below.
The segment features Mike Rubens exploring Colorado’s fiscal problems thanks to TABOR titled “Doug Bruce Ruined Colorado.” The video includes Governor John Hickenlooper in a plum-colored shirt, as well as the following verbatim quotes from Doug Bruce himself:
♦ “People would be very foolish to say that civil rights just has to do with benefits to black people…hispanics, blacks, orientals, whatever.”
♦ “Martin Luther King and I are both…” [pause while Bruce burps — literally] “…freedom fighters.”
♦ “‘Communal’ is a word…the derivation of which is ‘commune,’ which is…’communism.'”
♦ “I wasn’t aware that this proceeding was going to turn into a homosexual encounter.”
