Stephen Colbert Pokes Fun at Andrew Breitbart's Role in 'Weinergate' (VIDEO)

'Weinergate'Andrew Breitbart was a guest of radio shock jocks Opie and Anthony earlier this week to talk about his reporting of disgraced Rep. Anthony Weiner's recent scandal.

However, as we saw on 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central) it all went horribly wrong for Breitbart.

In what's now known as "Weinergate," Breitbart showed the hosts an explicit picture of Rep. Weiner's genitalia on his phone and, much to his dismay, the hosts managed to get a photo of it, which they then Tweeted.

Breitbart's explanation that he didn't know there were cameras in the studio prompted an incredulous Stephen Colbert to show a video clip of Breitbart appearing on the radio show.

In mock outrage Colbert said "He was assured there would be no cameras. And look at this footage of him with Opie and Anthony. I don't see any cameras there. ... If there was a camera there I think we'd see it."

Colbert then went on to show one of his own photos several times but used Breitbart's style to justify it: "I did not intend for anyone to see it." Gesturing to the studio cameras, he said "I was assured by my network that these are not cameras."

You know, it would help pull up Andrew Breitbart's credibility from Perez Hilton levels if he didn't look like a homeless man put into an expensive suit all the time on Fox News. I mean, you don't see Ann Coulter showing up looking like she just finished an Atlantic City bender.

Just sayin'.
