Grammer discussed his conservative political views Thursday night on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert."

“I honestly like Ben Carson,” Grammer said on the show highlighted by The Daily Caller.  “I like him a lot," he added.
 
Colbert joked that Grammer shouldn't hold his breath waiting for Carson to win.
 
"He’s the only guy who isn’t really part of the deal, you know?” Grammer said of Carson. He also joked that he'd "probably not" vote for Democratic presidential candidate Sen.

Carson met the actor at the National Right to Life Convention last summer:
The "Frasier" star said Thursday that he's "toyed with" getting into politics himself, and also talked about his first job as a teenager at a fast food restaurant. He joked that now as an adult, "My favorite snack is caviar."
 
“I think there’s a predilection towards dismissing someone who doesn’t think they way you do. That’s kind of common ground I guess. I guess that happens to a lot of people," Grammer said of being a conservative in Hollywood and New York.

“But no, I haven’t been shunned in any way, especially in Broadway. It’s funny, the Broadway community kind of sees past all that, I mean, tolerance actually really does exist on Broadway," said. 

Carson has received praise from other celebrities, though few have ended up actually supporting his White House bid.
