Rep. Jim McDermott appeared Thursday night on Comedy Central for the latest installment of comedian Stephen Colbert’s 435-part series, “Better Know a District.”
In typical fashion, Colbert asked a series of wacky questions while the Seattle Democrat played the straight man. McDermott fended off Colbert’s suggestion they make out, and appeared confused by the comedian’s reference to Sir Mix-A-Lot’s “Baby Got Back.”
Colbert: “Congressman, do you like big butts?”
McDermott: “I’m sorry…?”
Colbert: “You cannot lie, sir.”
No, a perplexed McDermott finally said, he does not like big butts.
The segment ended with an homage to the Pike Place Market, as McDermott flung a salmon to Colbert in the hallway outside his congressional office.
