Obama: Tyrant or 'King Gun Snatcher the Magnificent'?

King, tyrant, Constitution destroyer — President Obama was repeatedly called all of these names this week after announcing his proposed reforms on gun control. 

"Tyrants don't have to fight that f*&$ing hard for Ohio," Jon Stewart said on The Daily Show. "The real debate for tyrants is, how big do you want to go with the sunglasses and epaulets?"

Jimmy Kimmel also did a special inauguration edition of "Lie Witness News," where he asks random people about events yet to take place. Check out the the guy who claimed to have loved the "tap-dance routine" at Obama's swearing-in.

But for today's must-see moment, fast-forward to 2:36 to watch Stephen Colbert "support" Fox News Channel personality Steve Doocy, who wondered on Wednesday why children are only writing letters to the White House about gun control, not, say, the national debt.

Check out the best of the political humor from last-night's late-night shows...
