Donald Trump has already telegraphed his post-election future. It won’t be the White House, more likely it will be the green room. He’s reportedly planning to launch a television network so Stephen Colbert suggested some possible programs.

“A lot of people have been wondering what he’ll do under the likely scenario that he’ll lose the election, and the unlikely scenario that he admits it,” Colbert said.

The talk show host was referring to Trump’s refusal at the last debate to commit to accepting the results of the election. The move was widely interpreted as a death knell for his presidential campaign.

In its latest election analysis, The New York Times now gives Clinton a 93 percent chance of winning the election.

“Until now, the only place you could see 24-hours of Trump was on CNN,” Colbert said. “I can’t wait until he releases his own programming like the hour-long crime drama ‘Bad Hombres.'”

Trump henchmen, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and former New York City Mayor Rudolph Gulliani will get their own half-hour buddy sit-com, “Bridge and Tunnel.”

“They always have to use the tunnel for some reason,” Colbert said, an obvious reference to the criminal investigation into Christie’s role in the New Jersey scandal known as “Bridgegate.”

Eric and Donald Jr. will have their own children’s show, “Daniel the Tiger I Shot This Weekend,” he said.

Here are some of our favorites:

  • “It’s About Me:” A nightly talk show hosted by The Donald. Guests come on and talk about how great Donald is. First guest? You guessed it, Vladimir Putin.
  • “Groping for Dollars:” A game show where contestants roam streets in America’s small towns and cities groping as many women as they can before they are arrested. They win money for grabs above and below the belt, which can be used to pay off lawsuits.
  • “Oppression Adventures,” a travel show hosted by Donald, who travels to countries with the most oppressive regimes in the world to see how they jail political opponents, rig elections and enrich themselves at the expense of their citizens.

But, hey, we’re just brainstorming.

Colbert also dissects the latest Wikileaks email dump from the Clinton campaign, which includes such zingers as campaign advisor John Podesta “bailing” on a girls night out.

Or, the campaign’s brainstorming over 85 different slogans for Clinton’s election effort.
