Stephen Colbert on Wednesday donned his Caesar Flickerman attire, portraying Stanley Tucci's poofy-haired character in "The Hunger Games" to toast the final Republicans ending their White House bids.
"In the past few months, friends, we've lost so many brave tributes," Colbert said, dropping into the character he's used in recent months. "Today, we lost what many are calling more of them."
Listing the successes of John Kasich, who suspended his campaign Wednesday, Colbert showed images of confetti pouring on the governor after he won his home state. "There was Ohio ... and he's gone."
Colbert also saluted Ted CruzRafael (Ted) Edward CruzGOP senators introduce Trump's plan to claw back billion in spending Pro-Trump super PAC raises .5 million in 6 weeks Trump has exposed Democratic hypocrisy on prison reform MORE and mocked the Texas senator for accidentally elbowing his wife while going in for a hug after his concession speech.

"Congratulations, Capitol city salutes you," Colbert said.
"Farewell, tributes. I'm sure there's a place for you in Trump's Cabinet, or at least his trophy room."
President Obama last year likened the crowded GOP race to a real-life "Hunger Games" competition just weeks after Trump entered the race, before he became the front-runner.
