Stephen Colbert is an absolute treasure. He always has been, he always will be, and we are so lucky to have him.
He’s great on the Late Show, of course, but most of us remember him most fondly as the ignorant but lovable conservative jackass from The Colbert Report.
It’s been a little over two years now the last episode of The Colbert Report aired, and the show has definitely been missed — can you imagine how incredible it would have been to have during Trump’s campaign?
But don’t worry, friends: Stephen’s still got us.
Last night, on the very last day of Barack Obama’s presidency, the very last peaceful day before the four-year reign of terror began, we got to see a little bit of the old Colbert.
In a delightful little segment of “The Word,” Stephen broke down some key moments of Obama’s presidency as only he could.
He touched on Obama’s work to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” he brought up marriage equality and the death of Osama Bin Laden and the Affordable Care Act.
The skit was titled “Thanks, Obama,” that classic, ridiculous slogan of Obama critics everywhere — and boy, did Stephen thank him.
