"Late Show" host Stephen Colbert last night took on "the reality show everyone's talking about" the presidential primaries.

"People were calling it Super Tuesday part three," Colbert explained. "And like all sequels, it's getting predictable and very expensive."

Colbert noted that Bernie Sanders lost in all five states, including Florida, on Tuesday, adding, "It is just so sad to see Bernie betrayed by the people he most resembles."

And, of course, Donald Trump won four of the five primaries, which "might have something to do with the great endorsements Donald's been getting," like that of "former-candidate and man always looking directly into the sun," Dr. Ben Carson.

Carson explained his pragmatic decision to endorse Trump in a radio interview, saying, "Is there another scenario that I would have preferred? Yes. But that scenario isn't available."

"That is a rough endorsement," Colbert said. "I'll tell you what, the bar's about to close. You're not getting younger and neither am I. Let's get married."
