The "Colbert Report" host smoked cigarettes while giving a satirical look back at the presidential scandal.

Stephen Colbert donned muttonchops and a '70s suit to celebrate the 40th anniversary of President Richard Nixon's resignation.

Colbert's "A Fond Look Back, '74" segment featured a few gems, including actual audio of Nixon talking about panda mating habits, and a bit on the historical fact that members of The Committee to Reelect the President, (C.R.E.E.P.) were the ones to break into the Watergate Hotel.

Colbert called it "a name that somehow that escaped the scrutiny of Nixon's Undercommitte for Terminating Self-Indicting Acronym Choices, or N.U.T.S.A.C."
