Stephen Colbert Vows To Hold His Own Republican Presidential Debate

On last night's The Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert reviewed the current story of the Donald Trump debate ... uh, debate, and then he announced that he would hold his own debate. It will be in January. It will be on Animal Planet. It will be called "Stephen Colbert's South Carolina Serious, Classy Republican Debate."

He's kidding ... right?

Probably at least about the part where he's going to marry the winner.
