[WATCH] Stephen Colbert ‘rides a motorcycle’ with Rep. Gwen Moore in hilarious interview

Stephen Colbert Rep. Gwen MooreRep. Gwen Moore (D-Wisc.) has never riden a Harley, but she has dreamed about it. And thanks to comedian Stephen Colbert, she now has an even clearer picture of what it would be like to take a motorcycle for a spin.

During his “Better Know a District” segment on Wednesday’s episode of “The Colbert Report,” the host sat down with Moore to discuss her district, Wisconsin’s 4th, where the Harley-Davidson motorcycle company was founded.

“Harley-Davidson is based in your district,” Colbert said. “Do you ride?”

“I have sat on a Harley and taken pictures,” she responded. “And I have fantasized and imagined myself doing it.”

Colbert then mimicked a ride on a motorcycle and Moore pretended to sit behind him. In a prime bit of physical humor, the duo led the police on a chase while Colbert shot at them and finally jumped a ravine to escape.

“You’re a Congresswoman and you’re riding with a man who’s shooting at the police?!” Colbert exclaimed.

The Congresswoman was a good sport and played along with Colbert’s antics, resulting in a side-splitting back-and-forth.

During the interview, Colbert also asked the Congresswoman how she got elected in a majority white district and who she blamed for the state of the economy — the troops, according to Colbert. The comedian also brought up the budget of Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) and ‘trickle-down economics,’ areas on which the two disagreed.

“I do want to help poor people,” Colbert said. “I just can’t yet. I can’t yet. I do not have enough money yet.”

Colbert asked Moore about Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and whether or not she’s friends with him.

“He has thrown elderly under the bus, children under the bus, women under the bus…” Moore explained.

“That’s a metaphor, right?” Colbert interrupted.

“…teachers under the bus…” Moore continued.

“Has he literally thrown people under the bus?” Colbert pressed.
