AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): We expect to see a lot of candidates getting in this race in the next, what, six months I would say. Will they all make their platforms known, or announce that they're running on Stephen's show, or do you think that that's going to soon become a thing of the past?

MICHAEL LOFTUS (COMEDIAN): No. They'll announce on Colbert, then they'll do Kimmel, then they'll do Fallon. The entire late night arena in network, and streaming, and cable it's all just the advertising arm of the Democratic Party. It's a big giant safe space for them. It's really -- it's worse than propaganda. If you think about, like, Russia spent a few thousand dollars on Facebook ads and, oh, the world's supposed to stop. Look at late night television. It is a straight up ad for the Democratic Party and they demonize the right. Stephen Colbert and the late night shows are worse than Russia. There, I said it, come get me.
