After dissecting the GOP’s attempt to repeal Obamacare, Stephen Colbert showed footage of Obama speaking about the matter, and says what many are thinking.

We can’t help but feel like there’s a lot of people out there sharing this opinion!

On last night’s episode of The Late Show, Stephen Colbert spoke at length about the Senate bill to repeal Obamacare. Proponents of the bill basically say how families only want healthcare for themselves, but not for other people. It’s got a lot of people nervous because if this thing progresses it’s going to leave lots of people without coverage.

Colbert played some footage of Barack Obama speaking about the situation yesterday. In the clip, Obama stresses that he’s always up for something better. In other words, if they want to repeal Obamacare, that’s okay, as long as they have a better plan in place — which they don’t. “I’ll take better every time,” Obama calmly says behind the podium.

Cutting back to the studio, Colbert stands very close to the camera, addressing Barack Obama directly. He then says these three words:

“I miss you!”

Miss him as he might, however, Colbert can’t help but notice how gray Obama’s hair has gotten. It seems that he actually looked better nine months ago. He’s actually aging faster watching someone be president. “I’m pouring bourbon on my breakfast, and my breakfast is scotch,” jokes Colbert, who’s having just as much of a hard time dealing with the Trump presidency.
