Stephen Colbert had some fun with Paul Ryan's photo op at an Ohio soup kitchen earlier this week where he showed up and washed a few dishes for the cameras after most of the homeless people had already gone home. And he wrapped the segment up with this PSA for Ryan.

Colbert asks viewers to ‘save’ Paul Ryan with ‘the photo ops he desperately needs’:

The GOP candidate for vice president, Colbert said, has been victimized since being accused of faking a photo op at the kitchen, so he had a message for people quick to judge him: “Save the candidates.”

“This is Paul,” Colbert said, as a photo of Ryan appeared next to him. “Some day he wants to be vice president of the United States. But he needs your help. For just a few minutes a day, you can provide Paul with the photo ops he desperately needs to look like he cares. Anything you give will help. A handful of orphans to stand near. A disabled vet to wave at. Even a homeless man to pet. Won’t you call now and help this young man live up to his dreams of cutting all your government funding?”
