With only a week left of his final “Colbert Goes To Washington” victory lap episodes, President Obama showed up for “The Colbert Report” last night. He took over as host first doing “The Decree,” in place of “The Word,” and then sat down as a guest.
Obama does well at poking fun at himself, but this was a whole new level of pretty darn good. By all anecdotal accounts, he “killed it.” People were even watching live for the first time.

Obama clearly does not like being president anymore, but he is totally having a ton of fun on Colbert right now.

Colbert evidently doing such an effective job that Obama accidentally called him “Bill.” https://t.co/AjdZuxC3QJ

That might have been the first Daily Show&Colbert episodes I’ve watched live rather than the following afternoon.
