Stephen Colbert Goes Full ‘Hunger Games’ To Mock Donald Trump On RNC Stage

The comedian hijacked the microphone while dressed as Caesar Flickerman.

Stephen Colbert crashed the stage during preparations for the Republican National Convention in Cleveland on Sunday to poke fun at presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.

But “The Late Show” host’s stunt lasted less than a minute before a security guard quickly escorted him away.

The video showing the comedian seizing the microphone while dressed as Caesar Flickerman, the host from “The Hunger Games” movie franchise, was posted online and is now going viral.

The footage begins with Colbert announcing at the lectern that the presumptive GOP presidential candidate “has formed an alliance with Indiana Governor Mike Pence.”

It’s reminiscent of how the blue-haired Flickerman, portrayed by Stanley Tucci in the “Hunger Games” movies, reveals the alliances between the contestants battling it out to survive the games.

Colbert then drops his head, pretending to fall unconscious. “Sorry, I blacked out there for a moment,” he says a few seconds later, before revealing it was his “honor” to launch “the 2016 Republican National Hungry for Power Games.”

When a security guard begins to usher him away, Colbert admits that he’s “not supposed to be up here.”

“But to be honest, neither is Donald Trump,” he quips as the clip cuts out.
