Last Friday, Stephen Colbert announced that George Clooney would be his first guest on “The Late Show” premiering on CBS September 8th. Now, two more names have been added to that list: Kendrick Lamar as the musical guest and -- oh, yes -- GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush ... as GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush.

Colbert announced that Bush would be joining him Tuesday morning in a tweet, mocking the clownishly large pool of GOP candidates. "My first GOP candidate! Luckily I do 200 shows a year, so I think I can fit them all," he quipped.

In case you've last track of what Colbert has been up to these days: Mostly eating lunch alone, reducing Jon Stewart to tears and planning for the apocalypse.
