Hillary Clinton could be the first female president and America will finally catch up with 1960 Sri Lanka, said “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert.
Stephen Colbert, on Tuesday’s post-DNC Convention show, celebrated Hillary Clinton’s breaking the penultimate glass ceiling to become the first woman to receive the nomination of a major political party.
Colbert noted that Clinton’s historic achievement marks the end of the line for runner-up Bernie Sanders.
“If you’re a supporter of Bernie, you should be proud,” he said. “So many of the things that you fought for are now in the Democratic Party platform — fifteen-dollar minimum wage, overturning Citizens United, claiming your Hacky Sack as a dependent. It’s all in there.”
“This means Hillary Clinton could be the first female president,” said Colbert. “And America will finally catch up with 1960 Sri Lanka.”
What about Chandrika. Americans like Sri Lankans live in their world.

Folks,He is referring to first female Prime Minister in the World that is Srimavo and it was 1960. I hope Sri Lankans would appreciate the humor and try to understand other cultures. I live this country and I realized that how democracy works in America and it is not even imaginable in Sri Lanka. Sri Lankans should get out from 'Island' mindset and respect other cultures even though those cultures do not appeal to them.

Typical Sri Lankan attitude... boast about surface level achievements and ignore the deep rooted failures and mistakes.At least America made great achievements. What does Sri Lanka have to show ? A ancient rock fortress and dams and a railway network developed by the British.SL hasn't achieved anything significant since independence. Not to mention the what happened in the 1960s.This is a bila country with bila people
