Stephen Colbert checked in last night on Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, whose name is an anagram for Crisp Bee Urine, Colbert felt we needed to know. As worried as we may be about the outcome of the Republican primary, no one is more stressed out about it than Priebus – except maybe women and Mexicans and black people and any other person whose life would actually change for the worse under a Donald Trump or Ted Cruz presidency, but I guess that’s none of my business.

The analogy Priebus used to describe the current state of the race involved turning a seven-alarm fire in to a four-alarm fire. “It’s still burning, but it’s not as bad as it was,” Colbert quoted Priebus.

Colbert cut to a clip of a reporter asking Priebus if he felt any responsibility for the chaotic nature of the race and the success of the two most disliked candidates. He insisted he didn’t.

“You’re not pulling out your hair?” the reporter asked.

“No, I’m not,” Priebus replied.

“He’s not pulling out his hair; it is fleeing of its own accord,” Colbert said in reference to the Chairman’s large bald spot on his head.

Colbert focused in on one strangely specific claim Priebus made, which is that he’s not pouring Bailey’s on his cereal.

“That’s a very specific reference for something you are not doing, sir,” Colbert said. Colbert said he was concerned and wanted to make sure Priebus wasn’t using Jagermeister as a salad dressing or huffing ether out of a Scooby-Doo gym sock. In honor of Priebus, Colbert then took out a bowl and poured some Bailey’s in his Lucky Charms.
