Conservative pundit Stephen Colbert's goodbye to Barack Obama was everything his liberal counterpoint, The Late Show With Stephen Colbert presenter, freely admitted he couldn't offer. On Thursday night's The Late Show, Colbert's id showed up armed with a far more conciliatory tone. Instead of Colbert talking about his departure, his conservative identical twin cousin, Stephen Colbert, made a decision to talk about it instead. Stephen's right-wing alter ego appeared live from his "cabin in the mountains of justice" where lives with former Daily Show host Jon Stewart. "At long last, our America-hating, secret Muslim, lead-from-behind, terrorist fist-bumping, hopey-changey, Apologist-in-Chief is leaving office", Colbert's other half said. With that cleared up, "Colbert" waltzed onto the stage, took a seat at the desk, and launched into a familiar, if slightly tweaked segment: The Werd. That's why I want to say, thanks, Obama.
The segment wasn't sentimental, because it suggested that, like so many presidents before him, Obama wasn't without his flaws. "At least leave Biden!" he yelled. "But after looking at the scope of his Presidency, I realized that anyone who thinks they can sum up the last eight years in a few minutes would have to be a delusional egomaniac". While "post-factual politics" is a phrase that's been thrown around a lot since Trump first started running for president, it's important to remember that Obama faced insane, groundless allegations from the get-go (a handy visual summary of which can be found here), long before Trump was on the scene, and did so with enormous calm. "This started out tonight being a small, little concert, and then we had the idea, maybe we'll do it in front of the Lincoln Memorial - I don't know if it's ever been done before, but if it has, very seldom", he said. "If you think it's amusing, laugh".
