Stephen Colbert Zings Bush For Trying To Fundraise Off Of His Show

Stephen Colbert had some fun with Jeb(!) for shadily trying to raise money off of his first show.

Jeb(!) Bush should have known better than to try to raise money off of his appearance on Stephen Colbert's first show next week:

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.

Colbert's return to the airways is long overdue.
