He joked about not being alone while overseas, saying, "You know who did know I was in Russian Federation?" "Hardcore fans, evidently, followed me everywhere".
And Colbert gave him one-sort of. "If anyone would like to work on my campaign in an unofficial capacity, please just let me know", he said. Then: "Oh, wait, someone's already got that covered".
- "That's me in front of St. Petersburg Winter Palace".
Returning to his CBS "Late Show" on Monday night, host Stephen Colbert talked briefly about his recent trip to Russian Federation, where he filmed several segments for future broadcasts. "And I thought it would be better to cut out the middleman and just tell the Russians myself". "I would have my son-in-law ask them".
"I'm just exhausted of Trump", she said on a panel about her show on May 16. Trump, who long denied Russian Federation meddled in the election at all, immediately hopped on The Tweet Machine to declare he believed The Washington Post's new report and to urge everyone to blame Obama, whom he happened to accuse of the exact same crimes he and his team are under investigation for. "But I'm pretty sure my crew did".
But, according to Colbert, his high profile and Russian jokes may be attracting too much attention for his own comfort, specifically from Russian intelligence. "Ivan, I presume, is Russian for Jimmy". After all, Colbert's not the first late-night host to go to Russian Federation. "It works over there somehow, I'm not sure".
