After launching his new show with a bevy of jokes on Donald Trump, Stephen Colbert decided it would be a nice idea to invite the GOP front running candidate for the presidency on The Late Show.
So, Sept. 22, it happened.
It certainly wasn't the best interview Colbert has had on his show so far, that honor goes to the the emotional chat with Vice President Joe Biden. But still it was a civilized conversation in which Trump still would not say whether President Obama was born in America.
Then they played a little game:
All in all, a solid night at The Late Show.
The best Halloween costume ever is calling, and all you need to do is pick up the phone.
Yandy.com is selling a sexy Donald Trump Halloween costume that goes by the name of Donna T. Rumpshaker. The costume comes complete with a white sleeveless shirt, red tie, royal blue blazer and royal blue booty shorts.
Obviously no sexy Donald Trump outfit is complete without some booty shorts.
The hat and iconic wig are sold separately because that's how American capitalism works, you socialist Muslim LOSER.
We only hope the costume is made in Mexico or China.
With Miley Cyrus hosting the VMAs yesterday, there was no question that this would be one crazy show. But the most shocking moment last night came from Yeezus himself.
After accepting the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, and in classic mic drop fashion, Kanye West informed the world that he plans to run for President in 2020.
"It's about ideas, bro. New ideas. People with ideas. People who believe in truth," he said. "And yes, as you probably could have guessed by this moment, I have decided in 2020 to run for president."
Obviously the Internet freaked out.
I hear Kanye was incoherent, random, and high on his own ego in announcing his run for President. Don't knock it. It works for Trump.— Ramez Naam (@ramez) August 31, 2015
Could it be? Kanye/Swift 2020?
We'd also have to deal with this...so maybe not.

Well, it seems like Donald Trump has not let go of his grudge towards FOX News' Megyn Kelly, even though its been over a month since the GOP debate that sparked the whole thing off.
After Kelly asked him a series of questions regarding Trump's views of women, he took it personally, saying the questions were unfair.
He continued responded, days after the debate, with Twitter baiting and possible interview slander, but that was a few weeks ago and you'd think the candidate for United States President would find other ways to fill his time.
Megyn Kelly returned to her regular FOX show, The Kelly File and Trump returned to troll.
I liked The Kelly File much better without @megynkelly. Perhaps she could take another eleven day unscheduled vacation!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 25, 2015
.@megynkelly must have had a terrible vacation, she is really off her game. Was afraid to confront Dr. Cornel West. No clue on immigration!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 25, 2015
Then he just started retweeting people.
And then there's this one.
Save us, Deez Nuts.
You never know what you're going to get when you open up a container of butter. We received this interesting photo on Facebook from viewer Jan Castellano of Wildwood. This morning she opened up her new package of Earth Origins Organic Spread to find this 'image' in her butter.
Look like anyone familiar?
Here's a hint:
Yes, yes. Trump's visage is just as recognizable as Jesus Christ in a fish stick.
As for Trump's campaign, we can't believe its not over.
(Get it? Like 'can't believe it's not butter'. Jokes are always way funnier when they are explained.)
Jon Stewart retired from The Daily Show only two weeks ago and now a petition has been set up to bring him back into the world of politics.
A Change.org petition has been launched hoping to convince the Commission on Presidential Debates to consider inviting Jon Stewart moderate one of the three national televised debates that will air sometime next year.
Over the last 16 years, Jon Stewart has played an influential and iconic role in covering US politics and media. We believe he should continue that tradition as a moderator at one of the 2016 Presidential Debates.
Jon Stewart is more than qualified to tackle the moderating job. Mr. Stewart has interviewed 15 heads of state, 22 members of the United States Cabinet, 32 members of the United States Senate, 7 members of the United States House of Representatives, and scores of other political leaders from this country and around the world while establishing himself as the most trusted person in (satirical) news.
The petition asks for 200,000 signatures and a public response from the government on the state of this petition should it reach its goal. So far, it has gathered 163,773.
If you'd like to sign the petition, or leave a comment on why you think it's dumb, you can do that right here
Deez Nuts, the 15-year-old Iowan really named Brady Olson, has shaken things up this week with his Independent run for the White House.
The campaign has done many things in the short time that its been around. It has inspired hope.
It has also forced many, many news anchors to actually say the name of the fictional candidate. This is perhaps Deez Nuts' greatest achievement.
Without further ado, feast your ears on the compilation:
Well, it looks like Donald Trump has a new rival for the votes of North Carolinians.
Public Policy Polling has discovered some rising approval numbers for a new Independent candidate — Deez Nuts of Wallingford, Iowa.
Finally another declared independent candidate, Deez Nuts, polls at 9% in North Carolina to go along with his 8% in Minnesota and 7% in Iowa in our recent polling. Trump leads Clinton 40/38 when he's in the mix.
This caught the eye of the campaign media and the high numbers, which are above Carly Fiorina, Mike Huckabee and Scott Walker for the state, have only grown the attention towards his campaign.
No, we were not hacked. 'Deez Nuts' is the legal name of the candidate and he is polling at 9 percent in NC: http://t.co/HnGP0y6oOO— ABC11 EyewitnessNews (@ABC11_WTVD) August 19, 2015
But it doesn't end there.
Deez Nuts, who is apparently a 15-year-old sophomore in high school named Brady Olson has actually set up a campaign website for himself, which includes a detailed platform.
Surprisingly, the platform's stances seem sincere and well-considered. Deez Nuts has a more conservative view of immigration reform although he believe in choice as far as abortion rights.
He also lays out a surprisingly detailed stance on territorial voting rights:
I support giving citizens in our American territories voting rights. I also support giving American Samoan citizens automatic US citizenship. I would give Puerto Rico 3 electoral votes since Puerto Rico is bigger than many states. Guam, the US Virgin Islands, and the Northern Marianas all get 2 since they are smaller, but still incorporated territories. Finally, American Samoa would only get 1 since it is still considered an "unincorporated" territory. This would bring the total of electoral votes from 538 to 548.
We all know who should be the newcomer's campaign manager.
Would you vote for him?
GOP Presidential candidate (and serial water sipper) Marco Rubio took a break from campaigning in Iowa today to totally annihilate a kid in the head with a football.
You can watch the short clip above, but it is even better in GIF form.

And even better in Pokémon GIF form.
