Could America have another TV star-turned-President?
Stephen Colbert revealed his possibly serious plans for the White House during a recent appearance on Russian late night show Evening Urgent.
“OK. I am here to announce that I am considering a run for president in 2020, and I thought it would be better to cut out the middle man and just tell the Russians myself," The Late Show host reportedly said.
“It’s a pleasure to drink with the future U.S. President. To you, Stephen. I wish you luck. We will do everything we can so you become president,” Evening Urgent host Ivan Urgent joked.
Colbert recently came under fire for a controversial monologue insulting President Donald Trump on The Late Show. See more in the video below.
