Bernie Sanders stopped by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert Monday night and helped the host retrieve a candy bar that was stuck in a vending machine. In the opening segment of the show, the senator from Vermont assured Colbert that there was no reason to give up on his delicious treat. Unfortunately, Colbert didn’t share the same feelings about the candidate’s chances of becoming the Democratic nominee for president.
Sanders was hopeful about his ability to win the West Virginia primary on Tuesday, but Colbert pointed out it might not matter because of the “delegate math” being against him. That didn’t seem to bother Sanders, who made the connection to Colbert’s candy conundrum, saying that he had to “rock the system” just like Colbert needed to rock the vending machine to get his candy bar loose.
In the end, Colbert finally got his 100 Grand bar — and then the senator hilariously asked if they could share it.
The Late Show With Stephen Colbert airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. on CBS.
