Back off, Donald Trump: Stephen Colbert is here to restore dignity to the Republican presidential race.
Responding to The Donald's plans to moderate a Dec. 27 Republican debate in Iowa, the "Colbert Report" host says he will hold his own "South Carolina Serious, Classy Republican Debate" in January.
The debate will trump Trump's by being much classier, Colbert says. Everyone will arrive in limos that will be taken away by helicopter. Men will wear tuxes and Michele Bachmann a fur hat — "sable, only the best."
Colbert says the debate will air next month on Animal Planet, and — oh no. Is he possibly not serious about this? Watch the video. (We'd embed, but it isn't working.)
