For Russian ears only: Stephen Colbert is running for president of the United States in 2020. In an appearance Friday on the Russian late-night show “Evening Urgant,” “The Late Show” host sat on the other side of the desk for once, bantering with host Ivan Urgant through an interpreter and playing “Russian roulette” with a tray of vodka-filled shot glasses and pickles. Midway through their game, the American comedian interrupted Urgant to say he had something to disclose — but only if he could confirm first that the show wasn’t broadcast in the United States. “I am here to announce that I am considering a run for president in 2020,” Colbert said, delivering what was ostensibly a joke with a straight face.
