Stephen Colbert Compares 2016 Election to the Hunger Games

Politics

"As a voter, I am sad to lose Joe Biden," says Stephen Colbert on the Late Show. "But, I mean, being a candidate sucks. It's an ugly, nasty battle with a single bloody survivor. It's like the Hunger Games. No it's more than that. It's the Hungry for Power Games."

He then launches into a recurring segment where he impersonates the eccentric host of the Hunger Games, Caesar Flickerman.

Stanley Tucci, who plays Caesar Flickerman in the blockbuster movie series, even makes an appearance. Check it out:

Colbert also discusses how Hillary Clinton came out looking great after the 10-hour long hearing on Benghazi:

Make no mistake: Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness is about wildlife trade and other aspects of wildlife exploitation, just as surely as the appearance of Ebola, SARS, MERS, avian flu and probably COVID-19 in humans is a result of wildlife exploitation. As a conservationist, this is one of the things I've been thinking about while watching Tiger King. Here are five more:
