The Late Show recently announced a string of high-profile political guests for its second full week: Vermont Senator and Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon and Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer will all sit down with Colbert for interviews.
Fellow Republican candidate Jeb Bush will appear on the first episode of Colbert’s new show.
News of Biden’s addition to The Late Show comes just hours after NBC’s Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon announced that Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump would appear on that program on September 11.
Some have already speculated that Biden could use his Late Show appearance to announce a presidential run.
Question: if you were going to run for president, would you announce it on Colbert's brand-new "Late Show?" https://t.co/wxyrxddUTJ
