Tony Hale, aka Veep’s sycophantic Washington body man Gary Walsh, hovered behind Democratic VP candidate Tim Kaine tonight as the candidate met Late Show host Stephen Colbert in the green room, whispering helpful information.

After two segments with Kaine, Colbert brought out Hale to ask him if Clinton and Kaine should watch HBO’s Veep for pointers.

“Don’t watch it,” Hale advised. “There’s not good models of politics on my show….I think it’s more about office politics. These people are positioning themselves to get ahead…they’re atrocious people.”
