"Late Show" host Stephen Colbert on Tuesday examined Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's recent health woes — particularly her pneumonia diagnosis, which he called her "lunghazi scandal."

"This whole pneumonia saga feeds right into the narrative that Clinton's hiding things and she's too unhealthy to serve," Colbert said.

Is Hillary a blood-drinking extraterrestrial lizard in disguise?"
