Stephen Colbert was “enraged” when the “liberal hacks” at Fox News attacked Paul Ryan on Sunday. “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace grilled Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan about his tax plan math. Ryan told Wallace it would simply take too long to explain the math.
“Great answer,” Colbert said Monday. “For some reason, Wallace wouldn’t take no answer for an answer.”
Furthermore, Americans don’t want to hear about math, Colbert added: “Obviously the math behind how Romney can give everyone a 20 percent tax cut without bankrupting the government is just way too advanced for us regular folks to understand.”
