Wednesday night on “The Colbert Report,” host Stephen Colbert turned to the topic that’s currently on everyone’s lips, Anthony Weiner’s penis. A mere 50 days out from the New York City mayoral primary, former U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) has come forward with new revelations of a “sexting” relationship with a woman who is not his wife, complete with a fresh batch of incriminating photos.

“Yes, even after the sexting scandal that ended his congressional career,” said Colbert, “It turns out he learned nothing. Has this man never heard of SnapChat? Your dong shots disappear seconds after you send them…I have been told.”

Photos of the candidate’s penis were published on TheDirty.com, “the New York Times of celebrity dick pics,” said Colbert. He then showed the image to the audience with pixels blurring out the X-rated bits.

“It looks a little bit like he got it caught in a waffle iron,” Colbert quipped.

Weiner sent out the messages under the pseudonym Carlos Danger, said Colbert, “I assume it was to avoid a ridiculous name like ‘Anthony Weiner.’”
