Stephen Colbert Disses Republican Convention, George Will

Colbert's opening last night went right for George Will's newfound "availability"

Last night's opening Colbert monologue focussed on the Republican National Convention, where they are having a hard time getting speakers.

He then pivoted to George Will's abandonment of the Republican Party -- and let all the other parties know that "He's available!"

But more about this speaker thing. We understand that Trump wants to have convicted rapist Mike Tyson on the stage (special!) but he's really having a hard time finding actual Republican office holders who want to ATTEND the convention, let alone speak there.

Any suggestions for Donald Trump and the RNC? Who would you suggest as a convention speaker for the Republicans?

Here's my nomination. Take note, Reince:
