The “Late Night” host dressed as “The Hunger Games” character and mocked Donald Trump before being escorted offstage by security.
The magical moment was captured by an onlooker in this YouTube video, which has been viewed more than 475,000 times since it was posted Sunday.
“[Trump] has formed an alliance with Indiana governor Mike Pence,” Colbert said in character as Flickerman, before pausing and feigning sleep. “Sorry, I blacked out there for a moment.”
He then banged a gavel and said, “It is my honor to hereby launch and begin the 2016 Republican National Hungry For Power Games”
When a security guard appeared to escort Colbert off the stage, he said, “Look, I know I’m not supposed to be up here, but let’s be honest, neither is Donald Trump.”
