"By eunuchs I mean Paul Ryan and Reince Priebus who clearly checked their balls at the door this election."

Stephen Colbert released his full "Hungry for Power Games" sketch Monday night, after a video previewing his experience crashing the Republican National Convention surfaced several hours ahead of time.

In character as The Hunger Games' Caesar Flickerman, complete with blue wig and eyebrows and his sidekick Caligula, Colbert hit the convention, pointing out the controversially labeled "white elevators" as he strolled in to the Quicken Loans Arena.

As he walked into the main arena, he said the space was so grand it can "almost hold Donald Trump's entire head." Colbert said that soon, Trump would come to the RNC flanked by his "two eunuchs." He added, "By eunuchs I mean Paul Ryan and Reince Priebus, who clearly checked their balls at the door this election."

The Late Show host pointed to a chair Chris Christie would sit in to watch the end of his political career, and then asked a Telemundo reporter if she had to "burrow in" under Trump's wall to get into the convention. He said North Carolina delegates were seated near the bathrooms so they could "check genitalia," referring to the state's controversial "bathroom bill."

As he took the stage, Colbert said that in the next few days the Republicans will prove that they are truly passionate about one candidate — Hillary Clinton. Then, as was seen in the YouTube footage that went viral Monday, he was led off stage after banging his gavel and launching the "Hungry for Power Games." "I know I'm not supposed to be up here, but let's be honest, neither is Donald Trump," he shouted.
