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 then toasted a cartoon image of Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpLondon terror suspect’s children told authorities he complained about Trump: inquiry The Memo: Tide turns on Kavanaugh Trump to nominate retiring lawmaker as head of trade agency MORE, a reoccurring character on the show, for becoming the presumptive GOP presidential nominee. "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.
