Patrick Stewart Becomes Louisiana Worker for ‘The Colbert Report’ [VIDEO]
The infamous Patrick Stewart showed up the ‘The Colbert Report’ last night, not to promote an upcoming film project, but to step into the hilarious role of a blue collar Louisiana laborer sentenced to die by the proverbial stranglehold of Obamacare.
This stunt, of course, was to poke fun at recent reports of the Koch Brothers paying actors to shed working class tears brought on by the financially crippling effects of the Affordable Care Act.
Patrick Stewart plays the part of Louisiana worker Chuck Duprey, “an average American Joe, who prefers to crack open a domestic beer and watch the NASCARS.” In reality, he looks more like a Hoosier barfly, who is just one beer away from hanging himself dead from the roof of a VFW.
However, Duprey does not need to commit suicide since he is destined to die from a horrific case of fisherman’s foot “for which there is no cure.” The spotlight shines down and Duprey begins to enlighten the audience about how after “peering into the post box” he basically discovered that he was about to be screwed over by Obamacare.
