Talk about a government takeover!

"The Colbert Report" was broadcasting from Washington D.C. on Monday when President Obama appeared on stage to announce that he was stepping in for Stephen Colbert in his segment "The Word."

Since Colbert had take so many shots at his job over the years, he said, he wanted a shot at his. And because he is the president, he naturally changed it to "The Decree."

"Nation, as you know, I, Stephen Colbert, have never cared for our president," Obama says to kick off the piece called "To Health in a Handbasket."

While discussing his health care plan, he made fun of himself in the third person, Republicans and even the "fake news" channel "Fox News."

The Colbert Report is in its final stretch with the last episode to air December 18.
