Stephen Colbert is literally foaming at the mouth over news of Donald Trump's presidential announcement.

In a Youtube video uploaded Tuesday night, Colbert sports a signature Trump comb-over and rambles at great length about what Trump's bid will mean for the future of late-night television (apparently it means great things!).

“I agree with Donald that America is dead -- buried in a coffin, in salted earth with our enemies pissing on it and laughing" Colbert said. "And Donald Trump is the only man who can -- excuse me, I’m just moved -- I’m physically moved by the knowledge that Donald Trump is the only man who can dig up the corpse of that nation and marry it.”
