Since taking over the CBS late night spot with Late Show, Stephen Colbert has continued his reputation for snagging interviews with the most important people in politics. While the "Stephen Colbert" character appears to have been retired, Colbert himself doesn't shy away from asking tough questions, calling out boilerplate answers, letting candidates speak when they've got something to say, and cutting off interviews that aren't going anywhere.
As the 2016 campaign rolls on (and on and on and on), Colbert continues to give candidates on both sides of the aisle a forum to get their message out, persuade voters as to their worthiness, and take a few pointed barbs from the host. Expect dozens of interviews, and with them, quotable lines, exchanges, and maybe even a few Colbert burns. Some will be funny, some will be poignant, and some will probably be pretty hostile.Here are the best quotes from Stephen Colbert's 2016 presidential candidate interviews. Vote up the best, most memorable quotes and moments!
