Stephen Colbert turned his focus on the “Three Amigos” North American summit last night, mocking the awkward three-way handshake between President Obama, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who he called a “Disney Princess” because “he’s very pretty. He’s very, very pretty.”

Colbert also played video of the Canadian parliaments heartfelt farewell to Obama — a standing ovation, and cheers of “four more years!”

“They really like him,” Colbert said. “Maybe he can get them to confirm a supreme court nominee.” If only.
