Stephen Colbert is not slowing down as he approaches the end of The Colbert Report and the beginning of his tenure as David Letterman’s successor on Late Show. Colbert Report‘s passionate host goes after President Barack Obama’s administration’s alleged attack on Halloween. The federal government’s Department of Energy wants people to carve green energy symbols into their pumpkins this year. Fox News shares his sentiment, mocking the Obama administration for wanting to promote environmental awareness (trees, who needs ’em?). Colbert wants to keep the tradition of carving pumpkins to “prove our dominance over nature” by “stab[bing] a pumpkin in the face!” Check out the clip below to see Colbert attack Obama’s Department of Energy and defend the tradition of Halloween!
