He only appeared for a few minutes at the start of the episode, which makes you want more. BUT this is more than 50 seconds on Samantha Bee's show.

In a skit, Stephen Colbert finds Jon Stewart in a cabin in the woods, where he seems to be out the loop with all of the political news these days.

Being out of the political news loop right now isn't necessarily a bad thing, mind.

And this is how Stewart reacts when he's told by Colbert that Donald Trump is the candidate.

So Stewart calls on his cabin buddy, who happens to be Stephen Colbert from The Colbert Report!!!!

A character who we thought we were never going to see again since The Colbert Report wrapped up on Comedy Central in 2014.

We then saw the unexpected return of the classic Colbert Report segment "The Word", which features humorous or contradictory statements to what Colbert is saying on the screen next to him.

For example... "Right now at least half of America is feeling that their voice is not being heard."

"Eleven years ago I invented a word: truthiness. Truthiness is a word that feels true, even though it is not supported by fact."

He spoke of his admiration of Trump: "We're both over-the-top TV personalities who decided to run for president."
