Stephen Colbert Takes Jokes To Russia

"Like President Trump, I can neither confirm nor deny the existence of any other tapes of what I did in Russian Federation", he said, referencing the elusive tapes, supposedly of a fateful conversation between Trump and former FBI Director James Comey, that prompted Colbert's overseas trip in the first place. That would be Russian Federation.

"Man, it is good to be back in the United States of America", he said.

On last night's LATE SHOW, Stephen shared some highlights from his recent trip to Russian Federation and unmasked the source who leaked his whereabouts. "If anyone would like to work on my campaign in an unofficial capacity, please just let me know", he said. Followed me everywhere. Also got some attention from American intelligence. But it's important. Keep your eye on a comedian.

"Oh wait, someone's already got that covered", he added to audience guffaws.

It was the same meeting where he told the Russians our FBI Director was a "nut job".

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. "I'd have my son-in-law ask them", he said in jest to the roaring crowd.

- "Now to be clear, all I said in that little clip there was that I was considering a run". Perhaps not coincidentally, Emmy nomination-round voting closed Monday night-just days after Colbert made his trip public, first through a snarky tweet addressed to Donald Trump.

- "Like President Trump, I can neither confirm nor deny the existence of any other tapes of what I did in Russian Federation".
