President Barack Obama Gets Resume Help From Stephen Colbert With Hilarious Mock Job Interview

President Barack Obama will soon be out of a job, but luckily Stephen Colbert was on hand to help him with his interview skills for a hilarious skit on The Late Show on Monday, October 17.

The pretaped segment saw the TV host surprise Obama in the White House, where he put on his persona of “Randy, the Office Manager” to grill the commander in chief about what he wants to do once his eight years of service are up.

Randy scanned POTUS’ resume and vowed to give him some tips to help him get employed.

He kicked off the amusing exchange by pointing out that 55 years old is “a tough time to be starting over for a man,” before asking him why he didn’t have any promotions in his previous job.

“Honestly there wasn’t a lot of room for advancement in my last job,” Obama replied. “The only one with a more powerful position was my wife.”

Randy wanted Obama to explain why he was leaving his role, and struggled with the fact he wasn’t being terminated but “he can’t stay.”

“I’m leaving because it's required by the 22nd amendment of the United States Constitution," explained Obama.

But Randy didn’t like his response: "OK, little tip, when you say staying at your job would be unconstitutional, what employers hear is that you stole office supplies.”

Obama pushed all the things he’d achieved as president of the United States, from getting health care for millions of people to reopening political relations with Cuba.

He then told Randy about his awards: “I have almost 30 honor degrees and I did get the Nobel Peace Prize,” he said.

When asked what that was for, he joked: “To be honest, I still don’t know.”

Obama also seized the opportunity to urge the youth of America to vote on November 8.

Being on a network television program meant Randy had to remind Obama that they couldn’t openly endorse either nominee, Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump.

So instead Randy wrapped up the interview by asking Obama about his “choice of snacks.”

“Would you care for an Extra-Fiber Nutrient Bar, which has traveled to more than 100 countries,” he asked. “Or this shriveled tangerine, covered in golden retriever hair, filled with bile, that I wouldn’t leave alone with the woman I love?”

”I think I’ll go with the fiber nutrient bar,” said Obama.
