Stephen Colbert took some time out in his monologue on Tuesday to poke fun at Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene. This time it was about the fact that she was hit with a cease and desist order after singing one of rapper Dr. Dre used without permission in a video posted to Twitter.
The Late Show host went on to joke that the mastermind of The Chronic has to be not only a doctor but also a lawyer, which is honest.
For those in the know, Greene posted an extremely idiotic video of herself walking down a congressional hallway in slow motion while Dre’s 1999 classic “Still DRE” played in the background. Which, of course, hasn’t been resolved, leading to the C&D and, according to her, a temporary suspension of Twitter.
“Man, these automated iPhone slideshow videos are getting weird,” Colbert joked after playing the clip. “You may have noticed that the music to this little video is Dr. Dre’s “Still DRE” is.
Colbert continued, “Well, Dre certainly noticed because Dr. Dre sent her a cease and desist letter. So he’s a doctor and a lawyer? Why is this guy still single?”

But that brought Colbert to a rather fun digression. “This isn’t the first time there have been copyright issues between rappers and politicians. Who can forget Bernie Sander’s unsanctioned tour as “Soup Doggy Dogg,” Colbert said in influencing Sander’s particularly pronounced accent.
“One percent, two percent, three and four, Soup Doggy Dogg, Dr. Dre is at the door. We could like some chowder please, drop it like it’s hot, where’s my soup? Colbert continued — imagine Bernie Sanders rapping the lyrics to “Nuthin’ but a G Thang” before referencing Snoop Dogg’s Neptunes song “Drop It Like It’s Hot.”
“SOUP!” Colbert added for emphasis and still gave a Bernie impression.
At the beginning of the monologue, Colbert also spoke at length about the absurd non-scandal involving some secret documents in Joe Biden’s former office – which he appears to have been unaware of and which were returned to the government as soon as they were discovered.
“Come on Joe! classified? Is that what every president does now just to scatter a trail like Johnny Document Seeds? Are these secret files everywhere? My god, this is stressing me out. I’m sweating the bullets here,” Colbert joked while pulling out an index card that said “Top Secret” while wiping his forehead.
