Why not? Stephen Colbert Says He’s Considering 2020 Run for President

Run on that Trump Derangement Syndrome platform Colbert!

Stephen’s got a potty mouth just like other demorat supporters/leaders. And we know how well that’s worked for them

From Hollywood Reporter: Stephen Colbert may have just announced a desire to run for president while appearing on a Russian late-night show Friday during his highly publicized trip to Russia.

The Late Show host, who is in Russia on assignment for his show, appeared on Evening Urgant, a popular Russian late-night program hosted by Ivan Urgant, on Friday.

In a clip posted on the show’s website, Colbert, after taking a few shots of vodka, asks Urgant if he can make an announcement. “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,” Colbert said as the crowd applauded. The American host added: “If anyone would like to work on my campaign, in an unofficial capacity, please just let me know.”

Taking one last shot of vodka, Colbert toasted, “A strong America, a strong Russia!”

Urgant also made a toast, saying, “I’d like to make a toast to the beautiful country of the USA, which invented the Internet. Thanks to it, we can meddle with US elections.” He went on to support Colbert’s potential presidential run: “To you, Stephen! Good luck! We’ll do everything possible to make sure you get elected.”

Colbert took a brief hiatus from The Late Show on Thursday and Friday to travel to Russia, but will return with a new episode on Monday night.

He tweeted a photo of himself in Russia Thursday in response to President Donald Trump’s tweet stating he did not in fact have any tapes on former FBI director James Comey, despite previously suggesting otherwise.

This is not the first time the late-night host has announced a run for president. In October 2007, Colbert announced his candidacy following public pressure. While many at the time thought his comments were made in jest, he insisted his candidacy was serious — though that was in line with his “Stephen Colbert” alter ego on Comedy Central’s Colbert Report.

He paid the $2,500 fee necessary to be included on the Democratic ballot in South Carolina, but his request was denied. Colbert ultimately dropped his bid on Nov. 5, 2007.

  4. Is he an actual Natural-Born US Citizen? I thought I read he was born a Canadian,but I could be wrong. Either way,does he REALLY want all the Skeletons in his closet exposed to the harshness of investigatory sunlight?

  7. Isn’t coldbert a pizzagate guy? Regardless, I can see him being more palatable to the domestic enemies and thusly getting more votes than killary did.
