Stephen Colbert as Caesar Flickerman, Roasting Presidential Candidates Hunger Games Style
Ladies and gentlemen and everyone in between, welcome to the 58th annual Hungry for Power Games.
I’m having a real hard time telling the difference between The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and The Colbert Report these days. This bit where he roasts the “fallen” presidential candidates who have dropped out of the race is perhaps quintessentially, patently Colbert Report. The best part is how Colbert does it in theme with The Hunger Games, and even dresses up like Caesar Flickerman to absolutely put these former
tributes candidates on blast.
When I say roast, I really mean roast. Colbert just leaves no artfully painted fake stone unturned (sorry Peeta) when destroying former governor George Pataki and Senator Lindsay Graham. This segment is still worth watching even if you haven’t really kept up with the election. It’s pure fun, and Colbert really knows how to ham it up as Flickerman.
