Two more have fallen, leaving Cartoon Trump to bask in the victorious glow.

Not so long ago, it seemed like every other week brought a new presidential dropout, and with it a Stephen Colbert ‘Hungry for Power Games’ salute. That changed as the field narrowed, but Colbert brought back his Caesar Flickerman impression on The Late Show Wednesday’s to toast Ted Cruz and John Kasich. He started by mocking Kasich.

“He may be gone, but he’s not … who are we talking about again?” Colbert said. “Oh, Kasich! Let’s take a look back at all the triumphs of John Kasich’s campaign: there was Ohio, and he’s gone.”

Colbert was suddenly joined by none other than a Cartoon Donald Trump, in his own pink-colored, poofy-haired Caesar Flickerman impression. Cartoon Trump gave his own eulogy for Cruz’s finished campaign.

“Lyin’ Ted is lyin’ in the ground,” the fictional Trump said. “He ran a tough race, but he was really bad at it and his father killed JFK. Pathetic.”
