President Obama with Stephen Colbert

President Obama with Stephen Colbert


(cross-talk) The President:
Hey guys. How are you? Sorry we’re running
a little late — Mr. Colbert:
Mr. President, Stephen Colbert. The President:
Good to see you,
Stephen, how are you? Nice to see you again. Mr. Colbert:
Thanks so much for
doing this with us. The President:
Now, the only thing I regret is, I’m not going to get to see you bald, man. (laughter) Mr. Colbert:
You’ll see it Monday night. The minute you go off the air,
Odierno’s gonna shear my head. It’s the last thing in the show. So we’re gonna take it from
right before you come in.>>Stephen, cut your hair off. Mr. Colbert:
With all due respect,
sir, you’re not the best advertisement for haircuts. And frankly, it’s going to take
more than a four-star General to get me to shave my head. The President:
Excuse me, General?>>Mr. President, welcome, sir. The President:
Thank you, General. First, I want to send my
greetings to the men and women of our Armed Forces in Iraq and
I and all Americans thank you for your service.>>(whispering)
Wow, this is amazing! Mr. Colbert:
You’re welcome, Mr. President! The President:
I wasn’t talking to you. Now second, General, I overheard
your conversation about Stephen’s hair — Mr. Colbert:
Wait, you overheard? Are your satellites
really that good? The President:
No, but my ears are
really that big. Now, as a man who understands
the appeal of a close crop, I say if Stephen Colbert
wants to play soldier, it’s time to cut
that man’s hair. Mr. Colbert:
Wait a second –>>Sir, I’d like to
request a confirmation. The President:
General, as Commander-in-Chief, I hereby order you to shave that man’s head.>>Yes, sir. Mr. Colbert:
Hey! The President:
Thank you, General. And once again, my thanks
to everybody there. Mr. Colbert:
That’s it. The President:
All right. Mr. Colbert:
Thank you, sir. (appalause) The President:
Thank you, thank you. I would like to
thank my family — (laughter) Mr. Colbert:
Look for this come Emmy time. (laughter) You’re a contender
at this point. The President:
It’s big, it’s big. (cross-talk)
