Surprisingly — at least, to us — Stephen Colbert was quite critical of President Joe Biden’s meeting with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman last week in an effort to lower gas prices.

From his monologue:

But it didn’t end there. Colbert mocked Biden’s age multiple times, first saying the fist bump was as hard as the 79-year-old president could punch and he followed that up by comparing Biden’s bones to peanut brittle:


Switching over to the guy who actually won the election. President Biden was on a trip to the Middle East last week, where he had a bit of a controversial meeting with Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammed bin Salman, seen here saying, “no, you drink York tea first.”

This was always going to be a touchy trip because the Crown Prince is infamously and I’m putting it delicately here, a murderer. But on the other hand, gas is $5 a gallon. So nah. So it was important that Biden put a lot of thought into how he would greet MBS. This was the decision.

OK, he got out of the car, approaching Mr. Bonesaw, and boom go the ethics. Can we see that from another angle, Jim? Okay.

Bang. There it is. Maybe that’s not a fist bump, maybe at 79 that’s as hard as Joe can punch. Throw them dukes out, Mohammed Bin Jack band. Okay, here we go. Here comes […]. Here we go. Watch this one.

Here it comes. Where’s it coming from? Where’s it going? You blocked me. The guy’s fast.

Okay? I hope they have some air conditioning over there because his bones are made of peanut brittle. Okay, I know I’ve made a lot of jokes about Joe being old, but in my defense, since I made those jokes, he has gotten even older. That’s on him. That’s not me.

There is something older than Joe Biden. It’s the universe. Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Lamply. We have been getting the first images from NASA’s groundbreaking.

Oh, and we would also like to point out that just a few months ago, Colbert didn’t care at all about gas prices because he drives a Tesla. How’d that work out for Biden?

But now? Now gas prices are important. Duh.
