Late-night host Stephen Colbert has been filming his show in Cleveland this week to highlight the comings and goings of the Republican National Convention, where the Republican Party will officially nominate Donald Trump as their candidate for the 2016 Presidential Election.

He made quite a scene when he appeared as Caesar Flickerman from The Hunger Games and tried to sneak onto the stage without permission. He was mocking not only Donald Trump, but the entire Republican Party. He says that the Republican National Convention isn't a convention at all, but the "Hungry for Power Games."

"Look, I'm not supposed to be here," Colbert laughed 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 on a lectern with a large gavel. It is likely that you will see the whole stunt on The Late Show at some point this week, but for now, you can see it in a grainy YouTube video:

Colbert recently announced that Jon Stewart, friend and former Daily Show host, would join him for his coverage of the RNC this week. They will again team up to cover the Democratic National Convention next week in Philadelphia.

The RNC begins on Monday, and will be filled with a lot of controversy. There is expected to be a crowd of #NeverTrump voters that will try to block the nomination.

May the odds be ever in our favor.
