    Comedian Stephen Colbert decided to hijack the Republic National Convention in Cleveland on Monday (July 18).

    It's the final countdown to the "Make America Great Again" 2016 Republican National Convention (RNC), which is set to kick off in Cleveland on Monday.

    It appears the excitement of it all has really taken many by storm and some are even attempting to stake their claim and gain notoriety. The first, being comedian and TV host Stephen Colbert, who took to the podium to carry out his own RNC campaign launch.

    Shouting from the main stage and lifting his fist to the ceiling, Colbert said he was ready to start the proceedings for a new type of Republican convention.

    "It is my honor to hereby launch and begin the 2016 RNC power games," Stephen Colbert said.

    At that moment, the security arrived to remove him from the stage, at which point he said he knew he was not meant to be there, but he didn't think he was the only intruder:

    "Look, I know I am not supposed to be up here but let's be honest, neither is Donald Trump."

    As he tumbled down the stairs the crowd could be heard clapping and laughing at his antics.
