Stephen Colbert Hijacks Republican National Convention Stage, Opens “The National Hungry for Power Games” – Video
Stephen Colbert has repeatedly mocked the 2016 GOP Presidential race where he has likened the election to the Hunger Games. In those segments, Colbert plays the role of Caesar Flickerman (Stanley Tucci), the outlandish announcer who covers the games.
Last night in Cleveland Colbert dressed as Flickerman stormed the RNC stage during set-up and declared,”[Donald Trump] has formed an alliance with Indiana Governor Mike Pence.” Colbert then appeared to doze off at the mention of Pence. “Sorry, I blacked out there for a moment,” he quipped. He then grabbed the gavel on stage and declared, “it is my honor to hereby launch and begin the 2016 Republican National Hungry for Power Games!”
As a security guard approached him to get him off the stage Colbert said, “Look, I know I’m not supposed to be here. But let’s be honest, neither is Donald Trump.”
