The One Funny Story the U.N.’s Leader Could Tell Colbert

1 minute read

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon paid a visit to The Late Show With Stephen Colbet and opened up about one of the world’s most notorious leaders: Muammar Qaddafi.

Though most speakers at the U.N. get only 15 minutes for their presentation, the now-deceased Libyan leader spoke for more than an hour and a half. He apparently brought his own Arabic interpreter, who finally said he could not take it any longer and passed out.

Even being plied with a pink drink could not induce Ban Ki-moon to share more condemning stories with Colbert, but he did say he might open up more after he retires.
