Stephen Colbert Is Running For President In 2020; Calls Out Russia In A Big Way

On Friday night, comedian Stephen Colbert  went on a Russian talk show and announced that he is planning on running for president in 2020 and hilariously welcomed Russian help “in an unofficial capacity.”

‘The Late Show’ host says:

“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 on Evening Urgant, a popular late-night show hosted by Ivan Urgant that airs on state-run TV. “
He added:
If anyone would like to work on my campaign, in an unofficial capacity, please just let me know.”
 Naturally, the joke was brilliantly formulated to poke fun at the Trump administration and the Russia for allegedly interfering with U.S. elections.
If that wasn’t funny enough, Colbert took it to a whole other level when he tweeted Trump about being in Russia and searching for the Russian tapes:
