After all of the hubbub in the media over the White House state dinner and the fact that President Francois Hollande would not be bringing a first lady along, following the news of his recent infidelity, the pundits in our American media had their questions answered on just who was going to end up sitting next to First Lady Michelle Obama.

It turns out it was none other than Stephen Colbert, who announced to his audience this Wednesday that he is now the new First Lady of France, since that is who traditionally sits next to FLOTUS during that state dinner.

The show may never be the same... but Stephen was thrilled.

Can you help us out?
