Stephen Colbert reenacts nuclear holocaust for Georgetown professor
|The Colbert Report||Mon - Thurs 11:30pm / 10:30c|
|Better Know a Lobby - Ploughshares Fund|
Master of Science in Foreign Service Professor Joseph Cirincione went on the Colbert Report this past Monday to discuss the Ploughshares Fund, a group which advocates against nuclear proliferation.
Cirincione, who is president of the Fund, was probably prepared for Colbert-level provocation, but not for anything on the order of Colbert’s epic, 51-second impression of total nuclear annihilation. (It begins at the 3:30 mark).
On the program, Cirincione seemed less than amused. He came around the next day on Twitter: “Stephen Colbert does the best imitation of a nuclear explosion I have ever seen.”
Next, he and Colbert played “sanction, bomb, or marry.” And the real fun began.
