Stephen Colbert Announces His Possible 2020 Presidential Run on Russian TV

If any celebrity should go up against Kanye West and Joe Biden in 2020, we could do a lot worse than Stephen Colbert. If we’re down to elect network-TV hosts, hey, we’ve certainly got plenty to pick from. While a guest on Russia’s late-night show Evening Urgant (part of his plan to film a Late Show internationally), Colbert did shots with host Ivan Urgant, toasted to both a strong U.S. and a strong Russia, and, most important, asked the Russian people to help him get elected POTUS. “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 explained. The Late Show host joked, “If anyone would like to work on my campaign in an unofficial capacity, please just let me know.” This way, there will be no question about collusion in the Colbert administration. He’s already admitted to it on TV. Now that’s 4D interdimensional chess if we’ve ever seen it.
