President Obama Will Finally Sit Down with Bill Maher Next Week

obama-maherPresident Obama has done almost all the late night shows over the course of his 8 years in office, but he’s only now finally getting around to a sit-down with Bill Maher.

Back in January, Maher––who clearly got tired of attempting to make this happen behind the scenes––set up a petition on the White House website calling for the president to finally appear on his show.

The White House responded by saying they would think about it, which pretty much everyone took to mean “thanks but no thanks.”

But Maher announced last night that finally, after all that time, he will finally get that sit-down next week.

That’s right. Obama’s going to be doing an interview with Bill Maher less than a week before the election.

Watch the announcement above, via HBO.
