Stephen Colbert Wants to Host a Republican Presidential Debate (VIDEO)

'The Colbert Report'With news breaking that Donald Trump is planning to host a Republican presidential debate, Stephen Colbert decided on 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central) that he was going to host one as well. Only his was going to be even more outrageous than Trump's, as he proved in a very long, detailed -- and only somewhat crazy -- rant.

He said it would air on Animal Planet and be some time in January, which means he really hasn't put much forethought into it, much like his 'March to Keep Fear Alive.' In that case, he wound up tagging along on Jon Stewart's 'Rally to Restore Sanity,' and the double event was a huge success.

Which got us to thinking about how great it would be to have a presidential debate hosted by Stewart and Colbert. Colbert would keep them on their toes with his persona, while Stewart and their collective teams of writers would certainly push for the candidates to address real issues, without taking any of their political doublespeak.

Of course, as great of an idea as it is, we seriously doubt most of the candidates would go anywhere near the pair of them in that capacity.

Steve can hold a debate right after Donnie Gump. Gotta get in line, Stevie.

I rather see Colbert than sit through a debt listening to that idiot Trump.

I don't Colbert seriously as I don't Trump. Both can have them, but I wouldn't watch.
