Stephen Colbert has been a “lifelong” fan of dressage, or “horse ballet,” since about a month ago when he learned that Ann Romney has a horse competing in the London Olympics.
And Mitt Romney couldn’t be more excited or supportive as a husband, Colbert said Monday.
“I have to be honest with you, this is Ann’s sport,” Romney said in a recent interview. “I’m not even sure which day the sport goes on. She will get a chance to see it. I will not.”
What Mitt Romney is trying to say is that he is “jazzed,” Colbert said. “He just doesn’t know that much about the sport. When’s it on? What’s it called? What’s a horse? Who’s that woman who’s always hanging out with me at the breakfast table?”
