Watch President Obama Take Over ‘The Colbert Report’ and Liken Disney’s ‘Frozen’ to Healthcare
Obama definitely has a sense of humor that’s both charming and very much “dad joke”-ish (in other words, a pretty good one), but at least he was able to poke fun at his own initiatives (like healthcare reform) and his ratings as a second-term president, in addition to taking some shots at Congress and Fox news.
“Nation,” Obama said, “as you know, I, Stephen Colbert, have never cared for our president. That guy is so arrogant. I bet he talks about himself in the third person.”
He delivered some carefully executed jokes, like “Young people don’t watch real news shows like this one,” Obama said, as the words on the screen read, “Or fake ones like Fox.”
And, “Remember the healthcare.gov website? I think that’s where Disney got the idea for ‘Frozen.’” And then “Let It Loooad!” appeared on the screen behind him.
As far as getting “the kids” to apply for quality healthcare under $100 (now that the website actually works)? “Tattoo it on Taylor Swift”, Obama suggested.
The words on the screen next to the handsome Obama were a funny reprieve, featuring “POTUS Interrupts”, Everything But the Obama (in terms of what both parties liked about Obamacare), and Commander-In-Understatement.
Obama was one of Stephen Colbert’s last guests on the show, as the latter will be moving on to hosting the ‘Late Show’ when David Letterman retires.
