The Late Show host reprised the conservative pundit persona he made famous on the Colbert Report on Thursday's show to bid farewell to President Barack Obama -- though, for legal reasons, the late-night comedian technically appeared as the "identical cousin" of his classic character.
From there, Colbert launched into a segment not unlike his popular "The Word" segment (called "The Werd," 'cause again, lawyers), to reflect on the now-former president's eight years in the White House through a brazen faux-conservative bent.
"Well, well, well... At long last, our America-hating, secret Muslim, lead-from-behind, terrorist-fist-bumping, hopey-changey, apologist-in-chief is leaving office," the 52-year-old comedian riffed. "Thanks, Obama. You reminded guys like me what we truly stand for: the opposite of whatever you said."
