Stephen Colbert used the opening of “The Colbert Report” Tuesday night to mock the pre-announcements of Donald Trump and Newt Gingrich regarding their decisions on whether to run for president. Gingrich announced Monday that he would announce his candidacy Wednesday, and Trump has said that he will announce a press conference announcing his decision on the finale of his reality TV show.

Colbert warns Trump, that when throwing his hat in the ring, “he’s gotta be careful when he throws his hat so his hair doesn’t go with it.”

Watch the clip below, which originally aired May 10, 2011 and is embedded courtesy of Comedy Central.
