Mindy Kaling Roasted Stephen Colbert’s Baby Gift (Because Oprah’s Was Better)
Sorry, Stephen Colbert, but no one can outdo the one and only Oprah Winfrey.
On yesterday’s episode of The Late Show, Colbert congratulated Mindy Kaling on the birth of her daughter, Katherine Swati Kaling. This prompted the Champions producer to talk about the slew of gifts she received after her baby girl’s arrival.
As for the gift Colbert sent little Katherine, Kaling wasn’t impressed.
At the 2:20 mark, Colbert shows a photo of the outfit he and his wife, Evelyn McGee-Colbert, gifted Katherine. But Kaling points out the ensemble’s “old-fashioned” style before making a hilarious Titanic reference even Colbert can’t deny.
When the late-night host demands to know what Oprah gave the 2-month-old, Kaling politely says his present “straight-up sucks” in comparison to the media mogul’s gift, which was a hand-carved castle-shaped bookcase that required a U-Haul truck and two men for delivery.
Can’t win ’em all.
