Most late night talk show interviews include celebs telling funny anecdotes or playing silly games, but Stephen Colbert isn't afraid to have a poignant moment on The Late Show!

Joe Biden appeared on Thursday's show in his first television interview since his son's tragic death from brain cancer in May.

The Vice President elaborated on his previous statement that he wasn't sure he had the emotional strength to run for presidency in 2016 — saying that he didn't think anyone should run unless they could give "110 percent" of their heart, soul, energy, and passion to the job!

The 76-year-old then opened up about how he visited a military base and "just lost it" after talking to a soldier who served in Iraq with his son Beau.

We're sure most other late night hosts would get anxious from the lack of audience laughter, but Colbert is proving that it's okay to conduct a raw interview without pre-set jokes.

Check out the entire clip (below) — and skip to the 3:15 mark to hear Biden's emotional story:

However, unlike certain public figures who have copped to being tied to paid accounts, Hunter is adamant that the profile in question is absolutely NOT his.

He released a statement where he expresses that he's been framed in this situation:

"I am certain that the account in question is not mine. This account was clearly set up by someone else without my knowledge and I first learned about the account in question from the media."

The businessman-slash-lawyer says that he's been impersonated in the past:

Does President Barack Obama have a career in stand-up comedy?!

Maybe, not — but he certainly knows how to take on a heckler.

On Wednesday, the President took on one vocal attendee while celebrating LGBT Pride Month at the White House. Apparently, while POTUS was mid-speech, a protester began shouting his name.

However, instead of just letting the secret service handle the incident, the Commander-in-Chief quickly shut down the opinionated guest.

He stated:

It's a very sad day for Beau Biden's friends and loved ones.

On Saturday, President Barack Obama and MANY more paid their respects to the late son of Vice President Joe Biden, who tragically passed away from brain cancer a week ago.

In Barack's eulogy, he made mention of Beau's stellar public service record(Biden served as Delaware's attorney general) and how he cared so much for those in need.

Watch the moving speech in full (below):

So touching and heartbreaking. It sounds like the father of two was an amazing man AND politician.

The Son Of Vice President Joe Biden Passes Away From Brain Cancer At Age 46

| Filed under: Sad SadJoe Biden

What tragic and devastating news.

On Saturday, Beau Biden, the son of Vice President Joe Biden, passed away from brain cancer at the young age of 46.

Beau, an Iraq war veteran and who served as the attorney general for Maryland, leaves behind a wife and two young children.

Joe released the following statement regarding his son's untimely passing:

"It is with broken hearts that Hallie, Hunter, Ashley, Jill and I announce the passing of our husband, brother and son, Beau, after he battled brain cancer with the same integrity, courage and strength he demonstrated every day of his life. The entire Biden family is saddened beyond words. We know that Beau's spirit will live on in all of us—especially through his brave wife, Hallie, and two remarkable children, Natalie and Hunter. Beau's life was defined by service to others. As a young lawyer, he worked to establish the rule of law in war-torn Kosovo. A major in the Delaware National Guard, he was an Iraq War veteran and was awarded the Bronze Star. As Delaware's Attorney General, he fought for the powerless and made it his mission to protect children from abuse. More than his professional accomplishments, Beau measured himself as a husband, father, son and brother. His absolute honor made him a role model for our family. Beau embodied my father's saying that a parent knows success when his child turns out better than he did. In the words of the Biden family: Beau Biden was, quite simply, the finest man any of us have ever known."

How heartbreaking. It's clear Beau's family loved him beyond words.

President Barack Obama also added his condolences, saying:

"Beau Biden believed the best of us all. For him, and for his family, we swing our lanterns higher. Michelle and I humbly pray for the good Lord to watch over Beau Biden, and to protect & comfort his family."

Considering Joe already lost his first wife and only daughter in a tragic car accident in 1972, we can't imagine how feels right now.

Our hearts go out to Beau's family and friends during this difficult time.
