Sometimes, politics is just plain entertaining. Yesterday, Stephen Colbert managed to charm President Bill Clinton in to joining Twitter under an alias that only the night-night comedian could do.
“Well, sir, I took the liberty of opening you a Twitter account. Now @presidentclinton was taken, @williamjeffersonclinton was taken, but @prezbillyjeff was available,” he said, in an interview with the president at Clinton Global Initiative University.
It should be noted that the account is not verified, and as of this morning, the bio still reads “I am President William Jefferson Billy Jeff Rodham Clinton. Stephen Colbert is my BFF.”
