Barack Obama to Jon Stewart: I Love Your Show ... But!

Barack Obama to Jon Stewart: I Love Your Show ... But!

President Barack Obama stops by The Daily Show on Wednesday (October 27) in Washington, D.C., to chat with Jon Stewart.

The sit-down interview was serious most of the time, with the economy and jobs the topics of discussion, but Jon tried his best to get a few laughs out of the Prez!

After Barack stated his administration has done things that “some folks don’t even know about,” Jon asked, “What have you done that we don’t know about? Are you planning a surprise party for us, filled with jobs and health care?”

When Jon called some of his legislation “timid,” Barack testily replied, “Jon, I love your show, but this is something where I have a profound disagreement with you.”

    This discussion was supposed to be about an article about AJ’s cocain and harion addiction. Some how it turned into AJ breaking JA and BP’s marriage.

    Anyway, will or did people really buy this mag to read this drug addiction story? I don’t buy any mag or tab. I’m not even a fan of AJ and I know that she allegedly:
    - likes women;
    - likes anal sex;
    - likes SM sex;
    - use to use drugs (cocaine, not heroin, though);
    - wanted to have sex with as many men as possible;
    - use to cut herself;
    - wanted to become an undertaker;
    - had an obsession with dead;
    - tried to commit suicide.

    I do not regret my decision to vote for Obama, but this is a sorry reminder that he is just another politician. We may not be the brightest bunch as a whole, but we are not naive enough to actually believe there’s been something done that we just don’t know about. Give us a break, Mr. President.

  • haha

    nowhere in U.S. law does it state that every decision made by government MUST BE made known to the public. that would be impossible, so i believe him. what’s put in the press are to sell papers

    Barack Obama and Jon Stewart are amazing. We’re going through tough times right now, obviously it’s a huge ordeal to pick up Bush’s demented work. Barack Obama might not be “the best” but I’d rather have him doing absolutely nothing in the White House than George Bush doing everything in the White House.




  • JohnDoe

    Hmm… Is this guy looking for a new job… in show business?

  • Offgrid

    Barack Obama is awesome. And so is Jon Stewart. America and the world are lucky to have these 2 guys. Honest.

  • lisali

    Ugh.. I hate when presidents and other country leaders go on foolish talk shows………….it just makes me feel like they are promoting their own interests. It should be beneath them.

  • Ari

    @Offgrid: Yes, I’m sure the millions who are unemployed right now would agree. Obama is a joke.

  • norman the dog

    So, what is wrong with all that? These are the things that most young people try in their youth. The point is to understand what is right and what is wrong. Angie understood that and that was it. She grew up but you obviously not.

  • J

    Obama hasn’t done a damn this that is worthwhile. He’s good at talking and talking and talking, but that’s about it.

  • missy

    Only the truly stupid still support obama, he is a total fraud

  • sillyme

    So, where will Obama show up next? Dancing With the Stars? This guy is SO desparate to be loved!

    And, you’re right, #12 about Obama being a fraud. Do you know this guy even has to bring his teleprompter to staff meetings at the White House?! And, do you remember when he brought the prompter to a rodeo? Hilarious. Smartest president evah has to be told what to say at all times.

  • michaboa

    i’m still mazed that people think jobs are just supposed to turn up in an instant. ‘im sure those who are out of a job are incredibly frustrated and it must be hard. But having a stable economic recovery takes time and though it’s not great to hear, it’s the truth. Barack Obama is not Jesus, he can’t make things magically appear, but im sure he’s doing his hardest, to resurrect america’s economy. Jeez i understand keeping your president to account as it is necessary so he does not abuse his power, but cut him some slack.

  • Anonymous

    Does he have nothing more important to do than lowering himself by going on a stupid comedy show that most of the American People dont even watch?? Really Mr President?? This is why his approval ratings have gone over a cliff. America has grown tired of this arrogant , marxist, man-child.

  • Bree

    Sure, Obama may be good at making speeches and promises, but did he do anything significant yet?! He needs to take a stand, instead of blabbering and blah-blah-blahing. Even Democrats are becoming disappointed.

    @Ari: …the millions of unemployed need to get off their ass and find a job. bunch of lazy muthafcukas just sitting there complaining. they were jobless before obama took office. fcuking morons expect our president to go door to door and give jobs away. ahahahahahahaha
    …and why are people complaining about actually seeing their president?! …would those idiots rather never see or hear from their him, like past presidents?!?

  • Halli

    There really isn’t a reason to be “jobless”. Its that people don’t want to work for jobs that are beneath them. Which is fine, but if you are going months without work and losing income because you don’t want to work at Burger King that’s also your own fault.

    Also Obama hasn’t turned this sliding down economy in only two years because political parties on BOTH sides were actively deconstructing the entire fabric of the American economy when they signed free-treaty agreements and the repealing the Glass Steigall Act that led to Wall Street’s melt-down.

  • deedith

    This is sad, most of the comments here are really ignorant. Barack Obama has actually done a lot in the last 2 years, Healthcare anyone, saving GM from bankrupcy and so on . honestly, people shouldn’t really on their facts on Fox news or even msnbc there’s this thing called google, hello?
    Also like the republicans are any better. if u ask any candidate on what they could’vedone to better the economy, they dont have an answer.
    and that’s why I’m thankful everyday that McCain’s not president.

  • Gail

    People who say Obama hasn’t done anything are so stupid. He has done a lot in two years. Its just that you are underwhelmed or disappointed becuase the Acts and Laws he has passed have mostly long-term effects. Not short term effects. Health Care Reform alone is one of the most massive legislative accomplishments. It will never be repealed and forever more future Presidents and congress will have to work with and build upon what Barack Obama passed as the first and only President to pass any major health care reform law. That’s a huge deal.

  • Dan

    People who talk crap about the current present always act as if they could do better, but in all honesty, you’re on a gossip website… I wouldn’t even let you take care of my fish.

    If you hate Obama so much, why didn’t you vote against him? 1) you did and he still won because he’s better than McCain or 2) you didn’t vote at all thus making your opinion even more useless.

    If you don’t want to deal with Obama, go ahead and protest, but what I highly recommend is moving out of the US, it’ll be doing us all a favor.

    Republican Party = Fascism

    Democratic Party = The voices of the little people

  • rhonda

    Hillary has already fled the US and the Obamas leave a couple days after the election. Moochie Obama will meet with sex workers (no kidding) there is a hooker union in India.

  • riptide

    @boston61: Democrat=Started the Ku Klux Klan, enacted Jim Crow laws, filibustered the civil rights act of 1964, longest term U.S. senator for GRAND KLEAGLE in the Ku Klux Klan. Read a BOOK once in a while instead of getting your “facts” from a comedian.
