<p>Following Vice President Joe Biden&rsquo;s very publicized appearance, <em>Late Show</em> host Stephen Colbert also welcomed Uber CEO Travis Kalanick to the program Thursday night, but it was anything but friendly as Colbert hammered Kalanick on the effect his company has had on the taxi industry, surge pricing, the Uber Eats initiative, and driverless cars.</p>

<p>Colbert first explained how to Kalanick how he first found out about Uber before suddenly hitting him from the left on the battle the ride-sharing company has been waging with the unionized taxi cab industry: <strong>&ldquo;What is your response to Uber kills professional, good-paying jobs and it&#39;s unfair to the drivers and it&#39;s destroying the cab industry.&rdquo;</strong></p>
