1. It's good to see the admiral looking well.

He left the job as chancellor at the University of Texas in Austin when he came down with anemia. He was receiving some mention as a possible Democratic presidential candidate after he stood up to Trump.

2. Yikes! I did not know that!

And being anemic can be rough! I spent several years being severely anemic, it was tough to function since I felt like I was going to pass out - and did several times. But the admiral not only looks well, but he seems in good humor! You can tell that Colbert was quite impressed with him...
