Too funny. I like his Caeser Flickerman/hunger games character he did all primary long.

Stephen Colbert steals stage at Republican convention to mock Donald Trump

Stephen Colbert is filming The Late Show in Cleveland this week for the Republican National Convention, and he just gave Donald Trump a good reason to put him on his long list of banned journalists. Colbert, in costume as Caesar Flickerman from The Hunger Games, appears to have sneaked onto the stage without permission to mock the Republican convention and Trump himself. "Look, I'm not supposed to be here," Colbert said, as a security guard pushed him off the stage, "but let's be honest, neither is Donald Trump."

"[Donald Trump] has formed an alliance with Indiana Governor Mike Pence," Colbert said. "It is my honor to hereby launch and begin the 2016 Republican hungry for power games." He then banged a novelty-sized gavel at the lectern. We might get a full clip of the stunt when The Late Show airs, but for now, you can watch a video grabbed from the floor of the convention above.​

You think someone should be shot dead for saying stuff you think was rude?

What country do you think this is?

Colbert's 15 seconds of relevance this go round is likely how the history webpages will record this.

Hmmm... I think you might be right. A song by Wild Cherry perhaps?

"And they were hatin' and shootin' and snipin' to the groovin'. And just when it hit me. Somebody turned around and shouted, "Shoot that funny late-night white boy."

Trump should have come out spinning while wearing his fire dress.

Wow, looks like it was recorded with a flip phone. You can hardly see him, and I don't think anyone heard him. I'm guessing he was hoping for a bigger splash. I don't think there was even a ripple. Good idea, but a big fail on the implementation.

Colbert sneaks past Secret Service, without credentials? Big ass security breech, right there. That falls into the felony category.
