Think good thoughts, people!
That's the message Stephen Colbert is sending about Donald Trump, at least according to Colbert himself at a Television Critics Association panel discussion Monday!

Well, Colbert is starting up this little thing called the Late Show (maybe you've heard of it?!) on CBS on September 8, and he'd like The Donald to be healthy and combative and still in the presidential race by then… for show material!
Colbert, dying to take on Trump for TV funny, said:
"I just hope that he's taking his vitamins. Please stay healthy until I get on the air. Don't do anything dangerous; don't ride any motorcycles … 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."
LOLz!! Colbert on Trump would make for some AH-mazing laughs, so yes, let's all pray The Donald sticks it out in his presidential ambitions, at least for a few months!!
Colbert's first guest on September 8 will be George Clooney alongside musical guest Kendrick Lamar, by the way… but the host is a little concerned that no one has told the famous actor about it:
"I wish I could have done better than George Clooney as the first guest. I hope somebody has let him know. It's gonna be very awkward if he doesn't show up on Sept. 8. I like George Clooney because, I mean, he's a brilliant actor, a great director, and he cares about the world. How many celebrities have their own spy satellite? I'm gonna ask him if I can have the keys."
Oh man — September 8 can't get here soon enough, can it?!
Let's just hope in some alternate universe there's a way Trump would actually appear on the Late Show with Colbert!! We can dream…
