Is Stephen Colbert running for president?

By Tansy Walker

Recently in Russia during his The Late Show hiatus, Stephen Colbert stopped by the Evening Urgant, a Russian talk show hosted by Ivan Urgant. Colbert dropped made quite the announcement to the shows viewers that night.

He told them he would be running for president and wanted to cut out the middle men and tell them directly.

"If anyone would like to work on my campaign in an unofficial capacity," the host added, "please just let me know."

We are pretty sure he's joking, but wouldn't it be cool if he's not!
