Colbert listed a slew of things he would do rather than attending a Trump rally after the POTUS held his MAGA event in Lousiana to throw his support behind gubernatorial candidate Eddie Rispone.

The famed comedian claimed that he would rather attend the dentist or have a conversation with someone who knows a lot of Bitcoin among many other things that would be better than spending time with a bunch of cheering Trump supporters

"The DMV, the dentist, someone else’s child’s clarinet recital, a Soviet gulag, covered in honey and staked to an anthill, sliding down a 50-foot razor blade into a bathtub full of gin, and in conversation with someone who knows a lot about Bitcoin."

Colbert also mentioned Blockchain, the very technology that powers Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.   

"Go on, go on about Blockchain."

It seems apparent that Colbert still fails to understand Bitcoin. Back in December 2017, he confessed about knowing nothing about Bitcoin while the crypto craze was swiftly taking over the world.

Even after the initial bubble phase, Bitcoin still remains just a buzzword for the general public.
