Watch Stephen Colbert Chat With 'Cartoon Hillary' on 'Late Show'

"Bernie Sanders is a great friend and has been for days now," caricature says

Inspired by Bill Clinton's DNC speech, Stephen Colbert welcomed a cartoon version of Hillary Clinton to the 'Late Show' Tuesday night.

In Bill Clinton's DNC speech Tuesday, he referenced Republican nominee Donald Trump by saying: "You're only option is to create a cartoon." So Stephen Colbert welcomed "Cartoon Hillary" to the show.

Cartoon Hillary told Colbert that the United States presidential election is "the only [place] where a Secretary of State, senator and life-long public servant can be put on equal footing with a screaming cantaloupe."

On the leaked DNC emails scandal: "I think everyone agrees that now is the time to come together in unity, or harmony, or solidarity, or whatever synonym resonates more strongly with you" – as well as her relationship with the Vermont senator she defeated for the Democratic nomination. "Bernie Sanders is a great friend and has been for days now," she said.

Colbert then showed Cartoon Hillary some pre-recorded questions from RNC attendees, with one asking about the emails Clinton deleted from her private server before the FBI investigation. Clinton said that while she's the most qualified person to ever run for president, at the end of the day, she's still a grandmother. "Instead of focusing on my emails, let's focus on what Donald Trump will do to females," Cartoon Hillary said stiltedly. 

The caricature later explained what she has learned from her vice president pick Tim Kaine, including some Spanish as well as playing War's "Low Rider" on the harmonica.
