Stephen Colbert poked a little fun on Monday evening at Vice President Joe Biden’s television-inspired decision to support marriage equality

Biden said on NBC’s Meet The Press that the sitcom Will & Grace helped him develop his current position and did “more to educate the American public than almost anything anybody has ever done so far.”

“Here’s right folks, he’s right,” Colbert said. “These kind of TV shows can change our minds. Until I saw Frazier, I refused to accept the existence of Seattle.”
