Barack Obama appeared as one of the final guests on The Colbert Report on Monday night, and things got awkward fast.
Stephen Colbert has made a living off portraying a radical conservative, and he didn’t hold back as he stayed in character while grilling the president.
“When did you decide to burn the Constitution and become emperor?” the host asked a stunned Obama.
“Actually, Steve, everything that we have done is scrupulously within the law and has been done by previous Democratic and Republican presidents,” Obama responded, without a hint of irony.
It seems that Obama’s denial is still as strong as ever!
