Gibbs: President Obama “Would Love” To Appear On Daily Show, But Not Colbert Report
[Time magazine] "Do you want to do the Daily Show?"
[White House Press Secretary] Gibbs did not hesitate:
"I think the President would love to, just maybe not Colbert." He went on to explain:"I have yet to see a politician best Stephen Colbert in an interview on his show,"
Gibbs said, laughing. "I mean, he's really, really good."
Jon Stewart, you should make a phone call. Gibbs is on the record. The President of the United States wants to do your show.
As for Stephen Colbert, tough luck. But I wonder, Stephen, are you just going to sit there and take that sort of treatment from the commander in chief?
