Comedian and “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert briefly hijacked the microphone at the Republican National convention during its Sunday preparations for its opening the next day.
Dressed as Caesar Flickerman, the “Hunger Games” movie emcee, he used his moment in the Sun to take a few swipes at Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.
“He has formed an alliance with Indiana governor Mike Pence,” he said of Trump, and then apologized for blacking “out for a moment.”
“So it is my honor to hereby launch and begin the 2016 Republican Hungry for Power Games,” Colbert continued.
Before a staff member was able to drag him off the stage, Colbert slammed his gavel down as a final exclamation point.
But that wasn’t the end of his performance.
“Look, I know I’m not supposed to be up here,” he added as he was being thrown off the stage. “But let’s be honest, neither is Donald Trump.”
It’s safe to assume that Colbert won’t be voting Republican in November.
