Stephen Colbert, Chris Christie Tag-Team Takedown of ‘Bridgegate’ Critic David Wildstein (Video)

Stephen Colbert briefly recognized Black History Month — and February’s lesser-known Children’s Dental Health Month — before circling back to his usual political talking point: defending N.J. Governor Chris Christie over his involvement in the state’s “Bridgegate” scandal.

“Lots to get to, but first I have to send a ‘Colbert Report’ Shout-Out to my African-American viewer or viewers,” the Comedy Central host opened. He then drew a (somewhat) straight line between the two aforementioned causes that lay claim to the calendar month: ”The point is kids, great African-American leaders like Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King want you to floss. It’s what they fought for.”
