  • Fraud ! Fraud ! Colbert won because the game was rigged. Recount ! I demand a recount ! There is a computer system called "The Attracting And Detracting System" which has the power to attract and detract things. Colbert gave the machine the order to detract yellow objects and attract blue objects.

  • I am sorry to say that I was very disappointed in S. Colbert. I used to love his night shows, and taped them in order to watch them later. But after this interview my feelings changed about him. During this interview he came across for me as a pathetic control freak. First of all he overdressed the President by wearing a strikingly expensive suit. Secondly, he put the President into a very uncomfortable situation by forcing on him a silly "basketball game" by throwing crumpled papers into waste baskets. As somebody noticed: "giving him lightweight yellow pat paper and keeping higher density blue paper for Colbert", also, Colbert obviously practiced, so no wonder he won. Even worse, he celebrated himself proudly after that. I felt so bad for President Obama; it was an ambush and he was visible embarrassed and confused. It was an unworthy thing from Colbert's part, not funny at all. I hope when Colbert sees again this part he will feel ashamed of himself. If not, he is missing empathy.

  • Stephen, I like you, and have watched many of your shows, however, you cheated by crumpling up paper and you practiced ahead of time. Come on, man. Additionally, you were a little rough on the president with some of your questions, but he handled it as I expected he would. You asked some fair questions, too. The Obamas are every day folks; that's one of the many things I like about them. I love the story about grandma telling the kids that they hadn't "done much" and they were just along for the ride. Nice job grandma. I'll be reading the book.

  • Just think about this, no one will ever be playing wastepaper basketball with the current outgoing President. Obama is just such an all around likable man and will probably always be my favorite President of my lifetime. President-elect Biden has some big shoes to fill, not counting the last 4 years of course, but I have faith in him. Excited for the next 4 years for the first time in 4 years.

  • Can you just imagine sitting around talking with the Greatest President Ever and just having a good old fashioned fun time?? Barack Obama is just so easygoing laid back Genuine person. He really truly does care about we the people and is in tune with Everything going on around him and in the world. If I could have one wish it would be to meet this Wonderful Man and shake his hand. I would say Thank you for Caring and doing Everything you Could possibly do while you were President. What a Great Honor it would be.....πŸŽ€πŸ’™πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ’—πŸ’žπŸ’•πŸ’–
