President Obama officially began his second term on Monday, a day after he took the oath of office at the White House on the date required by the Constitution and Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert appeared quite troubled with the situation on the “The Colbert Report” later that night.

"Check your Constitution!" Colbert exclaimed. "By taking the oath today, he has made himself a three-term president, serving the second two terms consecutively. Now to get rid of him, we have to impeach him twice!"

Colbert questioned the need of celebrations for Obama’s victory when he is already the president of the country. “You don’t see the rest of America throwing a party when they continue to do their jobs.”

The Comedy Central host also doesn’t care much for second inaugurals. “A second inaugural? That’s like people who renew their wedding vows. We get it, you’re married. I’m not buying you another salad bowl,” he said.
