Stephen Colbert is making a “serious” return back into the world of politics. On his political satire news show The Colbert Report, he challenged Donald Trump’s GOP debate with a debate of his own.
“The GOP wants a serious debate, they deserve it. Bar none they’re the best party in the world — that includes space.”
In Julius Caesar fashion, Colbert delivered “Antony” speech that praised Trump and then buried him. In the segment below, Colbert jokes about Mitt Romney turning down Trump’s debate offer.
“I think these candidates are making a mistake not turning up for Trump, but I get why they’re hesitant. The guys a clown — only with more makeup.”
Colbert proceeded to call Trump “a child wearing man pants”, comparing his show to Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice. “He looks like a gin soaked raisin fell into a nuclear reactor.”
Colbert then announced “Stephen Colbert’s South Carolina Serious, Classy Republican Debate.” So apparently, he is very serious about hosting a debate.
“Everyone arrives in a limo, the limos get taken away by helicopter.”
While it’s doubtful that the candidates will appear on The Colbert Report to debate, fans would definitely get a kick out of seeing Colbert back in political action. In 2007, he made an attempt to run in the South Carolina primary as both a Republican and a Democrat.
Colbert states that this will be the biggest debate in history and suggested that he would “marry” the winner, gently mocking Kim Kardashian other celebrity weddings.
