President Barack Obama went from sitting behind his desk in the Oval Office to sitting behind Stephen Colbert’s desk on The Colbert Report. The President was a guest on the comedy-news show on Monday, but before his interview with Colbert, Obama temporarily took over hosting duties and delivered the fan-favorite Report segment "The Word." Or as he renamed it "The Decree."

After Colbert joked that no politician could do his job, President Obama appeared right on cue to prove him wrong. "You've been taking a lot of shots at my job," Obama told Colbert. "I decided I'm going to go ahead and take a shot at yours." Now, President Obama has shown off his impressive comedy chops before (be it at the White House Correspondents Dinner or on his now-famous "Between Two Ferns" appearance), but this time around he proved he's a pretty skilled late night talk show host, too.

Watch the entire segment—in which Obama poked fun at everything from health care to Fox News to, yes, even himself—here:
