In a twist from the usual “boxers or briefs” they’ll ask if he likes silk panties or whether he goes commando. Tonight he hangs out with Jay Leno, then Friday with MTV. What, no more tough interviews with the Pimp With a Limp?
President Obama will go on the record with MTV’s Sway Calloway and Andrew Jenks this Friday, joining the network’s presidential coverage with 30-minutes of questions with a live audience.
But the president insisted that a 30-minute phone call with members of the editorial board of the Des Moines Register remain off-the-record, as he sought their endorsement.
It’s a common theme during this election cycle as Obama avoids the press, choosing to appear on late night comedy shows, The View, and the Daily Show with John Stewart. The president has also gone on the record with radio DJ’s throughout the country.
Des Moines Register Editor Rick Green explained in a blog post he and one other member took the call, but criticized the president’s insistance [sic] that the conversation remain off the record.
“Our expectation is that the answer to one of the most important questions the Register ever can ask a politician –- “Why should you be our president?” –- deserves to be shared with voters,” wrote Green.
How dare anyone ask the president whether he should be the president? Really, such a demeaning question. Meanwhile,, at MTV he’ll be grilled by college students. Somehow we suspect the students haven’t heard much about Benghazi.
