Colbert Hijacks GOP Convention Stage to Mock Trump

Stephen Colbert stormed the stage at the RNC on Sunday, poking fun at Donald Trump and Mike Pence before being escorted off the stage.

The Hill reports:

Donning a blue wig as the dystopian young adult novel’s own talk show star, Colbert took to the stage to announce that Donald Trump “has formed an alliance with Indiana Gov. Mike Pence.”

Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee for president, announced last week that he had chosen Pence as his running mate.

The bit with Colbert as Flickerman will be familiar to viewers of “The Late Show,” where it had become the preferred means of informing audience members that a primary contender had been eliminated.

Colbert’s antics were cut short by a convention official who rushed to escort him off the stage.

But the comedian got off one last jab, telling the official, “Look, I know I’m not supposed to be up here, but to be honest, neither is Donald Trump.”
