Newswire: Stephen Colbert announces his second opening night Late Show Guest

The pieces are falling into place for Stephen Colbert’s Late Show kickoff. First George Clooney was announced as the inaugural guest, then Kendrick Lamar agreed to musically bridge the gap between The Colbert Report and back-to-reality Colbert, and now the third-most-famous Bush is joining the fun. Clearly unable to resist the pull of politics, Colbert revealed the news in a tweet poking fun at the GOP’s vast stable of 2016 candidates:

.@JebBush will be on #LSSC Sept. 8! My first GOP candidate! Luckily I do 200 shows a year, so I think I can fit them all.

— Stephen Colbert (@StephenAtHome) August 11, 2015

Only if you have at least two of us on each show. Looking forward to joining your first #LSSC next month!

— Jeb Bush …
