Colbert sings about the greatest gift of the season: the Republican National Convention

Stephen Colbert began his live Late Show coverage of the Republican National Convention with a pre-taped song-and-dance number about the RNC’s gift to us all.

The segment featured Colbert in a sparkly American vest and straw hat singing about ‘Christmas in July’ as the RNC gives him the greatest gift of the season—joke material.

“This week, you and me, we will win this history / As the RNC crowns their orange manatee!”

“We’ll see wacky hats, crazy ties, worn by thousands of white guys / An entire airplane hangar filled with Donald Trump’s ex-wives.”

“We’ll see Newt, Ron, and Rand, maybe members of the Klan / But no Muslims or Latinos, cause I think they’ve all been banned!”
