Video: Another Unhappy Moment For The Edelman Clan
Maybe the Edelman men should just avoid cameras for a while. Last night on the Colbert Report renowned anti-poverty advocate Peter Edleman (father of Jonah) seemed unwilling or unprepared to do battle with the host, who pestered him with questions suggesting that the poor aren't really poor and ended by asking: "Did you bring any poor people with you? I was hoping this was going to be one of those Jack Hannah segments where bring me a baby poor for me to hold." It was pretty intense stuff, though not all that unusual for Colbert. Edelman seemed miffed and walked offstage immediately upon the conclusion of the segment despite Colbert's encouragement to stay with him.
