Watch: President Obama Takes Over for Stephen Colbert on ‘The Colbert Report’

Watch: President Obama Takes Over for Stephen Colbert on 'The Colbert Report'

President Obama isn’t afraid to show off his more humorous side: The POTUS has stopped by a number of late night venues during his two terms, visiting with Jimmy Fallon, Jon Stewart, and even the character created by Stephen Colbert (not to mention his hysterical bit on “Between Two Ferns”).

Last night, in a special live episode, Colbert came to Washington DC to record his show in front of George Washington University students, all of whom whooped and cheered with glee when President Obama appeared on stage to take over for the Comedy Central comedian. 

Little did they know that the President was about to outdo every one of his past appearances by sliding into Colbert’s chair himself. “Stephen, you’ve been taking a lot of shots at my job. I decided I’m going to take a shot at yours,” Obama said.

Without giving much more of the outstanding appearance away, I will advise you to look for Colbert’s signature eyebrow raise early on in President Obama’s “Decree.” Watch the video in its entirety below.
