“Late Show” emcee Stephen Colbert will, in the next week, host famous faces from both the Trump and Clinton White Houses.

Former Trump aide Omarosa Manigault-Newman, who just finished a stint on CBS’s “Celebrity Big Brother,” will be a guest on Wednesday’s show, and former first daughter Chelsea Clinton is scheduled to appear on Monday night.

Manigault-Newman has become a vocal critic of President Trump since leaving her role as director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison late last year. She said on “Big Brother” that she wouldn’t vote for Trump again “in a million years” and that leaving his administration felt “like I just got freed off a plantation.”


Himself a frequent Trump critic, Colbert’s program has become a pit stop of sorts for political guests. Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) have all appeared so far this year.

Clinton’s Monday sit-down, her first with Colbert on “The Late Show,” comes ahead of a nationwide tour to promote her children’s book, “She Persisted Around the World.”

While she made the late-night rounds as she stumped for her mother, Hillary Clinton, during the Democratic nominee’s 2016 presidential bid, the 38-year-old mom of two has largely stayed out of the TV spotlight this year.

Other guests on the Monday show include actor David Oyelowo and Martha Stewart.
