Stephen Colbert Tries to Fill All the Vacant Federal Government Positions

Last night Stephen Colbert showed more from his recent trip to D.C., wherein the Late Show host attempted to fill all the vacant positions in the federal government.

Colbert spoke with Partnership for Public Service CEO Max Stier about all these vacancies and whether he sees the government as “half-empty” or “half-full.”

After trying to find out whether there were any vacancies in “the Deep State,” Colbert offered himself up as a potential candidate and walked through some of the questions, like whether he’s smoked marijuana in the past few years.

But then he went out himself to find candidates for positions like Director of the National Drug Control Policy, Ambassador to South Korea, NASA administrator, and Director of the U.S. Marshals Service.
