When one of the world’s foremost experts in trollism announces he’s running for president on a Russian talk show, you question that announcement’s legitimacy. Nevertheless, it’s possible Stephen Colbert will enter the race for the 2020 presidential election.

During a guest appearance on Russian talk show Evening Urgant, the Late Show host admitted a run was a possibility… while playing vodka roulette.

Take that information as you will.

“Okay. I am here to announce that I am considering a run for president in 2020, and I thought it would be better to cut out the middle man and just tell the Russians myself,” the former Colbert Report host said. “If anyone would like to work on my campaign in an unofficial capacity, please just let me know.”

“It’s a pleasure to drink with the future U.S. President. To you, Stephen,” the Urgant host responded enthusiastically, downing his third-ish shot. “I wish you luck. We will do everything we can so you become president.”

Interestingly, the 53-year-old confirmed Urgant was not broadcast in the U.S. prior to spilling the political beans.

This is not the first time Colbert has announced his intention to run for president, but his 2007 and 2011 “runs” weren’t taken seriously, neither by Colbert himself nor his peers. In ’07, he was denied slots on both the Republican and Democratic primary ballots in his native state of South Carolina, and in ’11, he placed fifth in a state-wide poll.

If the past were any indication, he has no chance. Post-2017, though, things have changed. The world now knows anyone can become president.

Anyone.

Sky’s the limit… as long as you have Russia’s approval, of course.
