President Barack Obama took the stage away from Stephen Colbert on tonight’s special D.C. episode of The Colbert Report and gave his own version of ‘The Word.’
He made it a bit more presidential, of course. Renaming it ‘The Decree’ for the duration of the segment, but keeping the “original” script the same. It’s a fantastic segment, even if it doesn’t feature the showdown that I had hoped for when it was announced last week. That took place later, when Obama sat down for a full interview with Colbert.
With Colbert set to replace David Letterman in 2015, Comedy Central has scheduled the last episode of “The Colbert Report” to air on December 18, 2014.
