A woman photographed in Manchester, New Hampshire — who chose breakfast over Carly Fiorina — quickly became a meme on Tuesday.

Now Stephen Colbert is in on the joke. “I don’t know how this woman is able to ignore the political circus around her,’’ Colbert said on The Late Show Monday night. “It might be because she knows that that pepper shaker right down there in front has a better chance of being president than Carly Fiorina.’’ Ouch.
