Stephen Colbert Clarifies That Russian "Running for President" Interview

Stephen Colbert Just Hinted At A White House Run In 2020

With an abbreviated average, on account of CBS excluding Thursday and Friday repeats, NBC's Tonight averaged a slim 34,000 viewers more than CBS' Late Show for the week.

"Man, it is good to be back in the USA", Colbert told his "Late Show" audience Monday night.

Caveat: Colbert's ratings for the week excluded Thursday and Friday, when his show ran repeats while he traveled to Russian Federation.

March 2009 Time cover of Trump is phony
White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders declined to say whether Trump had known the cover wasn't real. Former President Richard Nixon actually holds that title, appearing on the cover 55 times .

CBS also expects that Colbert will win when people who watch on a time-delayed basis are tallied. "I'd have my son-in-law ask them", he said in jest to the roaring crowd. After The Intercept obtained documents that showed the Russians may have tampered with the election, for example, Colbert said: "I'm a little rusty on my Constitution, but I guess that means new election?" He joked about not being alone while overseas, saying, "You know who did know I was in Russian Federation?" During the show, he revealed that he was under surveillance by Russian and American intelligence agents the entire time he was visiting.

- "For those of you not familiar with late-night TV in Russian Federation, it might seem a little foreign. Russian intelligence - hard-core fans, evidently, followed me everywhere".

Colbert mockingly agreed how "important" it was to keep comedians under surveillance. "Oh wait, somebody's already got that covered". If I decide to run, obviously, I'm not gonna ask the Russians to help my campaign. OK? His nightly monologues have included pointed barbs directed at President Donald Trump.
