Everyone and their mother is getting in on Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert’s political rally, even the president. Seriously, President Barack Obama has been scheduled to appear on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” to shoot the breeze right before the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear on October 30th on the Mall in Washington. Oprah Winfrey recently gave them her support and it looks like the prez will have a few things to say as well.
Starting next week, Stewart will be in Washington DC filming episodes of “The Daily Show,” which means he’ll be a hop, skip, and a jump away from the White House. If the president’s that close he might as well stop by, so mark you calendars because Obama will appear on the October 27th episode of the show.
“At a roundtable discussion last month, Obama told residents of Richmond, Va., he was “amused” by the idea of Stewart’s Rally to Restore Sanity.” He went on to say that “it was “really important” for people who expect common sense and courtesy in their daily interactions to have a rally where their voices can be heard.” That’s kind of an endorsement right?
Are you surprised that Obama is in support of the rallies?
