Donald Trump may have skipped the GOP debate on Thursday, but, that same night he was seen on CBS's Late Show with Stephen Colbert — debating himself.

The Colbert segment featured the Late Show host acting as moderator, asking questions of two different Trumps. The video, posted on Friday, has more than one million hits on YouTube. However, it appears to be somewhat similar to a "Trump versus Trump" debate that appeared on the syndicated "Ellen DeGeneres Show" in September 2015.
