WATCH: Stephen Colbert Hilariously Mocks Idiotic Jeb! Fundraising Ploy

Only 5 days until the debut of "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" and already, one of Colbert's first guests, a guy named Jeb!, is shadily trying to raise money off of it.


Colbert made a little video calling Bush out on announcing a contest for a "VIP" ticket to the first show on his campaign website. To bring you up to speed, the show's first guests will be George Cloonery and Jeb Bush, or as the media likes to call it, "Jeborge Cloosh!" Colbert jokes.

After pointing out various idiocies in the announcement, Colbert points out that no one from the campaign actually asked him (the new host!) for permission.

Funny stuff. Watch:
