Hologram George Washington made an appearance last night during The Daily Show‘s live election coverage. He was understandably surprised that a black man was president—let alone that he had been reelected!

In the meantime, a writer actually compares President Obama to Washington:

He came into this office a figure of history, unlike anyone who’s become president since George Washington. The simple event of him remains a great gravitational force in our politics. It changes the other parts of our politics in their customary orbits. It happens so easily and so in the manner of an immutable physical law that you hardly notice that it has happened until you realize that what you thought you knew about the country and its people had been shifted by degrees until it is in a completely different place.

You’re not kidding it’s different. Just ask Hologram George, but wait until he’s swallowed first.
