In the pre-taped segment that aired Wednesday on CBS’s "The Late Show," Colbert joins Warren at a restaurant to "teach her a little about South Carolina cuisine."

"It's very rich," Colbert warns Warren. "You're going to want to tax it.”

After gulping down oysters and boiled peanuts, Colbert quizzes the 70-year-old White House hopeful, who has called for a wealth tax and has been vocally critical of big money in politics, on guessing billionaires as he describes them.

When Colbert describes someone who "looks like he cut his own bangs with toenail clippers," Warren shouts out, "Bill Gates!" But after the late-night host says the unnamed billionaire "knows everything about you," Warren correctly responds, "[Facebook CEO Mark] Zuckerberg."

"Like Lex Luther, but he knows more about you and he's less trustworthy," Colbert says to describe another ultra-wealthy public figure.

"He's spending so much money on this election that right now this might actually be a commercial for him and we don't know it," Colbert hints next.


Warren replies, "Mike Bloomberg," the former New York mayor and a fellow contender for the Democratic presidential nomination. 

The two then sit at the bar and toast with Michelob Ultras before Colbert mocks Warren's preferred libation choice.

"It's the club soda of beers," Warren says in defense of the beer.

"Do you know the joke about why is Michelob Ultra like making love in a canoe?" Colbert asks with a smile.

"Because they're both f---ing close to water."
