Watch The President Turn 'The Word' Into 'The Decree' On The Colbert Report

Not bad, buddy.

Can it really be possible that The Colbert Report has never broadcast from Washington, DC before? Apparently it's true, so the show's producers decided to rectify that by scheduling its eighth-last episode in the nation's capital. And which of our elected representatives did he line up to "better know"? Well, it's just President Obama, nbd.

The President was Stephen's guest for the full half-hour, but before the two sat down for their double-length interview, Obama decided to do a little comedy (as he is wont to do), taking over the anchor seat to deliver The Word in Stephen's place.

Real talk? Obama's timing could use a little work. But that's okay: we can't all be Amy Sedaris.
