"It's not going to be good for you, but I think it would be good for the country.' And I'm like, 'Get out of here!'" Winfrey recalled. Colbert summoned God to appear on the ceiling of the Ed Sullivan Theater and he made his case as best he could.

To that, God merely replies, "Not really, have you seen this White House?" "And I'm sure you're going to find someone that you are just as inspired by in 2020".
