Colbert Joins Scott Bakula In ‘Quantum Leap’ Rerun To Steer Young Donald Trump Away From Politics

Imagine an episode of “Quantum Leap” in which time-jumping Sam Beckett (Scott Bakula) went back to 1950s New York City to encourage a young Donald Trump to enter the world of real-estate development when he grows up.

Fun fact: that actually happened in an episode of the iconic series, which Stephen Colbert reminded us on last night’s edition of “The Late Show”, and proved it by showing the clip.

This gave Colbert an idea: to join Beckett (with current “NCIS: New Orleans” star Bakula reprising the role) and return to visit Trump with a new goal in mind: to make sure the pint-sized future mogul never, ever, ever considers a career in politics.

“The Late Show with Stephen Colbert”; airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET/PT on Global; you can also watch full episodes online.
