Stephen Colbert grills Ryan Lochte in hilarious fake interview

Ryan Lochte admitted in an embarrassing interview with NBC's Matt Lauer that he fabricated his story that he was robbed at gunpoint while in Rio de Janeiro, a claim that caused a minor international incident and caused Lochte to lose a number of sponsorships.

Stephen Colbert took some of Lochte's responses from that interview to create this brilliant fake interview with the 12-time medalist.

"Colbert: You claimed that while you were at a gas station in Rio, a gun was put to your forehead and cocked, and you were robbed. Now you're saying that didn't happen?

Lochte: That didn't happen, and that's why I over-exaggerated that part.

Colbert: That part? OK, here's the thing ... that part is really the whole part. Without a gun cocked at your forehead, it's really just a story about some guys urinating on a gas station. How could you get that so wrong?"
