POTUS Takes Over ‘Colbert Report’


[dropcap size=small]P[/dropcap]resident Obama was set to appear on The Colbert Report when the show was filming in DC to talk about The Affordable Care Act, but he made his appearance a little sooner than anticipated and gave Colbert a taste of his own medicine, claiming: “Stephen, you’ve been taking a lot of shots at my job lately, so I decided to take a shot at yours…”.

President Obama proceeds with the Report’s ‘The Word’ but renames it ‘The Decree’ to make it more becoming of the Commander in Chief. He then sheds his own persona, takes on that of Stephen Colbert, and begins poking fun at himself through the entire segment. From an acting standpoint, does a fantastic job with it. He picks up the nuances of Colbert’s character with great detail, mainly the movements of the pencil while speaking. When watching the clip, it may not seem very impressive because he does it just like Colbert, but that is where the genius in the performance lies. Not to be blinded by the show business in the equation, this appearance was ultimately a reaching-out to young voters and was a press stop for the roll out of The Affordable Care act.
