Hungry For Power Games: Carson Eversleep

With each passing week, the number of candidates in the once-bloated Republican presidential race shrinks. "So little remain, you could count them on one of Trump's teensy little doll hands," Stephen Colbert said on Tuesday's Late Show. The latest GOP hopeful to drop out was the perpetually drowsy Ben Carson, so Colbert gave the candidate his Hunger Games-inspired send-off.
"When the brave doctor announced his campaign, he immediately set the tone with a rousing battle cry," Colbert said before cutting to a clip of Carson telling supporters, "I'm not a politician, I don't want to be a politician." "Wish granted," the host said before finally saying goodbye to Carson's campaign. "Goodnight, sweet prince. That is assuming you were ever awake in the first place."
