Biden, who has not ruled out a possible run for President in 2020, has not minced words when it comes to Trump in the past. He does the same thing here as he refers to Trump as the “exception” rather than the rule when it comes to Presidential behavior. Many of his talking points in the interview were familiar, as he discussed Trump’s handling of key situations and how different the country would look right now were Hillary Clinton the President instead. There were many moments of big applause within the interview and understandably so, given that Biden has the charisma to carry a room no matter what he’s talking about.
Now, is this going to get anywhere near the top of the list of the greatest Joe Biden interviews we’ve ever seen? Probably not, given that his previous one with Colbert talking about the death of his son was one of the most emotional ones we’ve ever seen. It showed Biden’s heart, his pain, but also his resolve and his desire to keep pushing forward. Ever since that interview we’ve felt as though Biden and Colbert had a different connection than any other late-night host — there’s mutual respect there, and not in the way that a politician would have for a late-night host who makes some silly jokes week in and week out. Personally, we’ll be happy to see Biden appear on the Late Show however often he wants to.
If Biden does ever decide that he wants to run for President, we hope that this is the venue he chooses to make the announcement. With the way that Colbert’s ratings are performing right now in the wake of Trump’s election, we’re pretty confident that he will still be on the air.
