Stephen Colbert Brings 'Hunger Games' Spoof to RNC: Video

Posted By on Mon, Jul 18, 2016 at 8:24 AM

[image-1]Stephen Colbert was hanging out at the Q yesterday, shooting some Late Show bits, when he managed to hit the stage and steal a few moments with the mic. 

Dressed up like Hunger Games emcee Caesar Flickerman, Colbert brought his "Hunger for Power Games" spoof to the arena. He grabbed the mic and riffed for a bit before being escorted off the stage. "I know I’m not supposed to be up here, but let’s be honest, neither is Donald Trump," he tells security. Check out the video below.
