Eric André Thought the RNC Would Be the Death of Him

Last week's Republican National Convention was distinctly absurd and surreal. Donald Trump and his merry band of crackpots continued their efforts to lower the morale of their constituency with doom-and-gloom rhetoric. Their bizarre, unhinged speeches made great comedic fodder for Eric André, whose brand of anti-humor is a near-perfect foil to the RNC madness. André visited the Colbert show last night to talk about his trip to Cleveland.

"I jammed out with Alex Jones from InfoWars. He's on a war against info," André told Colbert. "That was an open carry state, Ohio, everybody had guns and knives. I was like, 'Oh, I'm gonna die! This is where my life ends.'"

By contrast, he said the Democratic National Convention was a lot more mellow: "They smoke a little more weed at the Bernie rallies than at the Hell's Angels for Trump rallies."
