There are rumors going on Twitter saying that she had onion in her towel, and that she wasn't really maced. On one hand, the thing in her towel does kinda look like an onion, but on the other hand, I find it hard to believe someone could be that stupid.
Article: Bizarre theory about item wrapped in towel of viral Trump supporter
Here's the Vanity Fair interview mentioned in the article:
“Look At What We Love. It’s on Fire”: Stephen Colbert on Trump Trauma, Leadership, and Loss
It's a great interview and it's kind of a shame that most other sites seem to focus on his vertigo issue, like that's the only important thing to learn from the interview.
He's off next two weeks.
At the end of the episode he said that he will no longer tape the show at home, but he also won't be going back to Ed Sullivan Theater. He didn't explain where they will tape it then.
As great as that story is, my favorite is still Stephen's story about meeting his (now) wife for the first time. I love how he gets so into the story, like he's reliving it again. It's so cute. Here's the video of him telling that story (it's a Facebook video, because for some bizarre reason they never uploaded it to YouTube).
The funniest thing is, that same interview aired on Conan's show, and the lyrics weren't censored. You can watch it here (Dylan part starts at 11:15 into the video). Kinda makes me wonder if there's more to that story.
