The Late Show host dressed as the Hunger Games character and mocked Donald Trump before being escorted offstage by security.

Part 1


Stephen Colbert crashed the stage at the Republican National Convention Sunday night dressed as Caesar Flickerman from The Hunger Games.


The magical moment was captured by Cassandra Fairbanks and posted to Twitter. (Fairbanks’ video was uploaded without her permission and without credit to YouTube on Sunday night by a third party and has been viewed more than 500,000 times.)


“[Trump] has formed an alliance with Indiana governor Mike Pence,” Colbert said in character as Flickerman, before pausing and feigning sleep. “Sorry, I blacked out there for a moment.”


He then banged a gavel and said, “It is my honor to hereby launch and begin the 2016 Republican National Hungry for Power Games!”


When a security guard appeared to escort Colbert off the stage, he said, “Look, I know I’m not supposed to be up here, but let’s be honest, neither is Donald Trump.”


After being deposited back on the convention floor, he appeared to be filming a segment for his show, so maybe we’ll get to see a better version of this on The Late Show.


Colbert has dressed as the fictional character before in a recurring election-themed segment on his show called the “Hungry for Power Games.”


May the odds be ever in your favor, America!
