Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert appeared before the House Judiciary Committee's immigration subcommittee last week to testify on the predicament of the House Judiciary Committee. Colbert was invited by Democratic Representative Zoe Lofgren (CA-16).
While Nancy Pelosi loved it, not all Democrats were amused. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer told Fox News that he thought Colbert's testimony was not appropriate. Democrat John Conyers of Michigan asked Colbert to leave before he even started the testimony.
Republican Steve King of Iowa commented: "I think that he mocked the hearing process." Watch the testimony below:
