“Does he even read the others?” asked Karl about ones not signed with his initials. “Does he know they’re going out? Are they reviewed by senior people at the White House or is that just simply OFA doing something on his behalf?”

Jay Carney Joins ‘The Colbert Report’ Before Stepping Down as WH Press Secretary

Screen Shot 2014-06-20 at 11.59.18Today marks Jay Carney‘s final day as White House Press Secretary, and to commemorate the occasion, Carney was a guest on last night’s “The Colbert Report.”

Stephen Colbert began the interview imitating a member of the White House Press Corps asking a question of the Press Secretary following a White House press briefing.

Carney referred to himself as a “glutton for punishment” and the Press Secretary role as “such a high burn-out job” after recalling an email he received noting he was the longest serving Press Secretary since the mid-90s.

Colbert asked Carney when he and ABC’s Jonathan Karl were “just gonna get a room,” which was met with laughs. And before closing out, noted that the next Press Secretary, Josh Earnest‘s name, “literally means ‘just kidding, but seriously’.”

Click through to the Colbert Report and see Carney’s sit down with the comedian.

As part of ABC News and Yahoo News’ series “Power Players,” Jonathan Karl for ABC’s “This Week” sat down with potential 2016 presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and asked the Congressman whether he has ever smoked pot.

“If you say that you did, then suddenly there are people out there saying, ‘Well, it’s not a big deal,’” said Rubio in the below video. “On the other side of it is if you tell people that you didn’t, they won’t believe you.”
