President Barack Obama made a special appearance in Stephen Colbert’s Super Bowl post-game show on Sunday night. The segment began with Colbert throwing a football around to people around the globe. First, he threw it to Lt. Col. Christopher Landers and a team of soldiers that are serving in Afghanistan who revealed their 7-Layer dip was made up of salsa and six layers of sand. Next was astronaut Scott Kelly on the International Space Station who tried to throw a spiral in zero gravity. Third was Chewbacca who, Colbert said, would make an amazing lineman. Finally, it was time for President Obama to appear.
The two exchanged a few pleasantries and talked about the game before Obama admitted that the whole thing was pre-taped ahead of time. Colbert said that he was obviously working hard to do a live television show and found it hard to believe that the show was pre-taped. That was until of course Stephen Colbert walked out next to Obama.
Somehow, however, Obama managed to congratulate the correct team for their win. “What?!” Colbert exclaimed. “This was a pre-tape! How could you possibly know that?!”
The answer is simple for fans of the “National Treasure” movies. “Stephen, I’m the President!” Obama explained “It turns out, all of the Super Bowl winners for the next 50 years are written on the back of the Constitution. That’s the plot of ‘National Treasure 3.'” Colbert couldn’t believe it, decrying that there is no “National Treasure 3.” But, of course, Obama has all of the answers tonight. “Ha! That’s what you think. There will be. The script is on the back of the Declaration of Independence.”
Obama attempted to throw the ball back but it made a hard left into another room in the White House where it hit the First Lady. She was not pleased asking who was throwing the ball in the White House. Obama pointed to Colbert and slowly backed away. The deadpan was fantastic.

Meghan McCain explodes after declaring herself a ‘sacrificial Republican’ — and shocks audience with slur against Joy Behar
Whoopi Goldberg had to cool off a heated argument on "The View" between Joy Behar and Meghan McCain, who complained about being the show's "sacrificial Republican."
McCain mocked Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) for appearing at President Donald Trump's campaign rally in Orlando, where the president belittled him from the stage.
"The transformation is complete," McCain said. "That's what I thought last night, the transformation is complete."
She then warned the other panelists not to overlook the crowd enthusiasm for Trump, and she recalled a conversation with a producer who couldn't understand why the president's supporters loved him so much.
Reparations hearing erupts in applause after Ta-Nehisi Coates gives McConnell an epic lesson on racism
Author Ta-Nehisi Coates on Wednesday delivered an epic smack down of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) during a House Judiciary Committee hearing on reparations for slavery.
In Coates's opening remarks, he responded directly to McConnell's claim that the government should not pay out reparations to black Americans because slavery ended more than 150 years ago.
Coates pointed out that the United States was still paying out pensions to the families of Civil War soldiers "well into this century" and he said that the government still honors treaties it signed even though no one who signed them is still alive today.
