Stephen Colbert Rushes The Stage At The DNC

Not quite as triumphantly as at the RNC, but still very funny.

Colbert, aka Caesar Flickerman, did make finally make it to the podium with a diving effort. The 360 degree video is very funny too.

Stephen Colbert brought his “Hungry For Power Games” character to the floor of the Republican National Convention and seemingly had no trouble making his way around the Trump universe while in full costume, even making his way to the podium. The same cannot be said for his visit to the Democratic convention in Philadelphia, where a wall of security and stiff rules kept Colbert from ascending the stage with his weasel in order to stand at the podium.

It was quite the sight, especially given the ease at the Republican event. Colbert showed off his podium pass, sang a harmonious rendition of the national anthem, and even called in the help of former House speaker Nancy Pelosi. None of it worked and the security would not budge. You’d think this was less a Democratic convention and more a rally in Soviet Russia.

Luckily, Colbert has nerves of steel, a wide angle camera on a stick, and the support of CBS. He manages a gutsy charge for the stage rolling onto the podium area before being swallowed by security and led away, victorious.

The show uploaded the mad dash 360 video to its Facebook page, which is worth the watch just to see the security run after him and his blue wig as he rolls onto the stage.
