Stephen Colbert announced Tuesday night that former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey will make his first late night television appearance on the April 17 episode of the show. "I feel humbled and honored by that, it just isn't something - I've said this before".

In an interview in the 1990's, Trump once said that Oprah would be an ideal running mate if he ever chose to run for president.

"We're gonna have to get a bigger chair and I'm gonna need a stepladder to interview the guy", Colbert joked.

Colbert asked Winfrey about the idea of running for president again, and "God" made an appearance on the roof of the Ed Sullivan Theater.

"I'm a huge fan", said the cartoon of God projected on the stained-glass dome atop the Ed Sullivan Theater in NY.

"God stops by every once in awhile, he's a fan", Colbert said.

"I hear thou seeketh a sign", he continued before holding up a sign that read, "Run". God asks, pointing to a handwritten sign reading, "Run!" Winfrey proceeded to laugh so hard she had something of a coughing fit, and when the message still didn't seem clear enough, God revealed some Oprah 2020 merchandise. "Oprah", she told him.

"Nothing makes me happier than to see other people in their purest moments of joy". To that, God merely replies, "Not really, have you seen this White House?" "I'm very much in touch with my inner GPS.I'm in touch with God", she said. "It's going to be OK".

"Gayle goes, 'Look, uh, I just want to talk to you about something".
