Stephen Colbert is ready for the final contest in the Hungry for Power Games.
The late night host is in Cleveland, Ohio for the Republican National Convention and on Sunday, he stormed the RNC stage to gavel in the end to the Republican contest in a fashion befitting this unconventional election.

Colbert has repeatedly mocked the 2016 race in segments where he likens the election to the Hunger Games. In those segments, Colbert plays the role of Caesar Flickerman (Stanley Tucci), the outlandish announcer who covers the games.
Colbert was dressed as Flickerman when he stormed the RNC stage over the weekend and declared,”[Donald Trump] has formed an alliance with Indiana Governor Mike Pence.” Colbert then appeared to doze off at the mention of Pence. “Sorry, I blacked out there for a moment,” he quipped. He then grabbed the gavel on stage and declared, “it is my honor to hereby launch and begin the 2016 Republican National Hungry for Power Games!”
As a security guard approached him to get him off the stage Colbert said, “Look, I know I’m not supposed to be here. But let’s be honest, neither is Donald Trump.”
