Last night on the Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert paid homage to iconic South African leader Nelson Mandela with his usual fare of humor. But he also took some time to blast Rick Santorum, former Republican presidential nominee and – god help us – likely nominee in 2016. Colbert laid into Santorum for an appearance he made on Fox News, wherein he told Bill O’Reilly that the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) was pretty much the same as Apartheid—you know, government enforced racial segregation in South Africa. Check out Colbert’s reaction below.
