A former reality TV star, the Biggest Laughs cast member, the star of the Netflix comedy, and the host of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert are among those who have declared their candidacies for the 2020 presidential race.
“The Biggies” have not yet formally announced their candidacy but a source told Fox News that Colbert and fellow comedian Mike Myers will take part in a special panel at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in May.
The “The Late Show” will also host an online discussion with the candidates and their advisers.
Myers, who is known for his trademark “Woo, Woo” sound bites, has appeared on “The Celebrity Apprentice,” “The View” and “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”
The Biggie’s team said the group will include both the former reality show stars and their political advisers.
The BiggestLaughgers.com said they will hold an online Q&A, where they will answer questions about the 2016 election.
“We are proud to announce that our new panel is the biggest group of people on the planet, the most diverse group of political strategists and experts in the world, the largest group of celebrities and entertainment insiders ever to do so,” the group said in a statement.
“Our panel will include former politicians, former governors, former members of Congress, the very best in Hollywood, the best and brightest in Washington, the biggest stars in the entertainment industry and the best in business in New York.”
The group is not seeking the Republican nomination but is hoping to gain some traction among the conservative and conservative-leaning voters.
Trump, the former real estate mogul and reality TV kingpin, won the Republican presidential nomination in 2016.
“He’s a great guy,” Myers told Fox.
“I think he’s doing great.
But I think that’s the way he will help it.” “
As much as he wants, he’s going to help get the country moving again.
But I think that’s the way he will help it.”
“The real Donald Trump is just one man in the big room,” said Myers, “who is very smart and very, very tough.
We’re just going to have to be on our toes.”
The “Biggest Losers” won a string of TV awards including a Golden Globe for Best Comedy Series, a Peabody Award for Best Supporting Actor, a Critics Choice Award for Outstanding Comedy Series and a Saturn Award for Worst Comedy Series.
The show ran for seven seasons from 1998 to 2004.
In January, Myers announced that he was retiring from television.
The cast also said in the statement: “Donald Trump is a true genius, a great salesman and a brilliant businessman.
But the greatest part of this country is that the vast majority of us share in his love for our country and the joy of watching him do the things that we all love.”
“If I were to be president of the United States, I would work tirelessly to restore our country to greatness, and I would fight for all of us who share our ideals,” said Colbert, who joined the “Biggies'” in 2016 and has hosted “The Colbert Report” since 2013.
“Donald has been so incredibly gracious and gracious to all of you.
He’s an icon.
He is an inspiration.”
“You know, I’m not here to be a spoiler.
I’m here to say that if you were to win this election, it would be the greatest day of your life.
It would be a true historic moment,” said Trump, who was sworn in as president on Jan. 20.
“And we are going to make America great again, and we are the greatest country in the history of the world.
We will make it even better than it is right now.”
“I hope to have the best of both worlds,” said Stephen Colbert.
“If we get there and we win, I hope it’s because of me and Donald.”
