Stephen Colbert, who will replace David Letterman as the host of the popular Late Show on Sept. 8 opened up the show’s takeover for the first time Monday. He said that he couldn’t wait to get back to work and hear audiences laugh, but also stressed he had a personal message for real estate magnate and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
While speaking about his future plans at a Television Critics Association press event, Colbert, who seemed very interested in Donald Trump, begged the 69-year-old Republican to stay healthy until he gets back on the air.
Here’s what he said:
Every night before I go to bed, I light a candle and pray that he stays in the race and I also pray that no one puts that candle anywhere near his hair.
Although his plea gives us a few hints about Colbert’s intentions, we can’t wait to hear the host discuss Trump’s candidacy. His first guest is actor George Clooney, but we assume they will at least touch upon the subject.
