HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Stephen Colbert for US President? It's a possibility. It's an announcement he made while on Russian TV on Evening Urgant, a popular late-night show. They played a game called Russian Roulette where you make a toast and take a shot. Colbert said after a few shots, "OK. 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. If anyone would like to work on my campaign, in an unofficial capacity, please just let me know." Urgant finally said "It's a pleasure to drink with the future U.S. President. To you, Stephen. I wish you luck. We will do everything we can so you become president."
