President Obama made his final visit to Jon Stewart’s The Daily Show on Tuesday, as the famed host will soon leave Comedy Central’s acclaimed show. The two exchanged a bunch of hilarious remarks, but also talked about serious matters, including the Iran talks and the media.

Talking about their “senioritis,” Obama told Stewart he’s surprised to see him go before he’s done with his second term.

“I can’t believe that you’re leaving before me!” Obama said. He added that he’s issuing “a new executive order that Jon Stewart cannot leave the show,” but that the order is being challenged in the courts.

“You don’t have that much time to take away Americans’ guns and declare martial law and put hard-working Americans in FEMA camps… if you’re going to do that, you better get started,” Jon Stewart then told President Obama.

Moving past the initial jokes, Obama addressed some of his recent actions, including the Iran deal, nuclear weapons, ISIS, and others. Stewart’s interview with President Obama follows below.
