WATCH: Colbert gets political during Emmys, mocks California Recall election

Getting political during the Emmy Awards on Sunday evening, Stephen Colbert mocked  the California recall election.

Colbert said he had “the results of the special recall election for the 2018 Emmy for outstanding comedy.”

“As you remember, that year, ‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ was duly elected with an overwhelming majority,” said Colbert. “But! California law does allow for the recall of any Emmy award if enough signatures are first obtained,” he added, “meaning, the 2018 Emmy winner for best comedy could soon be ‘The Marvelous Mrs. Larry Elder.’”
