Hoyer v. Pelosi on Colbert Testimony

Comedian Stephen Colbert's testimony before a House committee Friday continues to stir controversy as Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., says the appearance was "inappropriate."

"I think his testimony was not appropriate. I think it was an embarrassment for Mr. Colbert more than the House," Hoyer said on Fox News Sunday.

His views are directly counter to what Speaker Nancy Pelosi said shortly after Colbert appeared before a House Judiciary Committee on immigration. "Of course I think it's appropriate," Pelosi told reporters Friday. "He's an American. He can bring attention to an important issue. I think it's great."
