The “Late Late Show” comedian asked Olbermann what kind of dog the former MSNBC host had just purchased: “Is it a little dog that fits in your purse as you go around to your outspoken liberal meetings?”

“What happened to you, man?” Ferguson asked. “Why’d you get a tiny little dog? Why didn’t you get like a regular American dog? You got the tiny little Maltese dog? What the hell?”

“I live in an apartment in New York,” Olbermann defended, “and this is just the right size for the dog.”
