House Speaker Paul Ryan recently took a DNA test for the PBS show Finding Your Roots with Henry Louis Gates Jr. and now talk show host Stephen Colbert is using Ryan’s ancestral roots to make him an offer.
On his popular talk show, Colbert said he “assumed the most shocking they’d find is that Ryan’s great-grandparents were Eddie Munster and Grover. But, it turns out, they found something way more unexpected: Surprise! Paul Ryan’s slightly Jewish.”
Colbert then joked, “Haven’t the Jewish people suffered enough?” before adding, “The Anti-Defamation League has already responded, saying: ‘What?! Run the tests again!'”
He then tells Paul Ryan there is “one burning question” left to answer. Colbert says “the price of admission” to the Jewish faith is a circumcision.
“Think of it this way, Paul: The foreskin is only 1 percent of the penis — and we know how much you love cuts for the 1 percent,” Colbert half-joked.
Colbert made his offer after Ryan shared this not-well-received Tweet on Wednesday morning.

Here’s the full segment from The Late Show With Stephen Colbert:
Colbert has made no qualms about his hatred of Paul Ryan so we’re willing to bet the House Speaker isn’t letting the talk show how anywhere near his private area with surgical tools.
