Stephen Colbert’s wish is granted. After begging for a place to tell Donald Trump jokes before his “Late Show” debuted, the former reality show host and current frontrunner for Republican presidential nominee has agreed to appear on the show.
Colbert will welcome Trump on Sept. 22, along with U.S. Secretary of Energy Dr. Ernest Moniz. The night before, on Sept. 21, Ted Cruz — another republican presidential nominee hopeful — will appear on the show. Both men follow in the footsteps of Jeb Bush, who appeared on the “Late Show’s” premiere episode on Tuesday (Sept. 8).
The show has lined up quite a roster of guests for the remainder of that week, including activist Maria Shriver, Senator Elizabeth Warren and Nobel Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai, who stars in the documentary “He Named me Malala.”
Meanwhile, Trump won’t just be visiting Colbert’s late night desk. On Sept. 11, he will appear on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”
