Obama to Appear On Daytime Talk Show ‘The View’
President Barack Obama will appear on the daytime talk show “The View” Thursday, according to CNN.
The interview, scheduled to be taped on Wednesday, will touch on topics including his administration’s accomplishments, jobs, the economy, the Gulf of Mexico oil disaster and family life inside the White House.
Obama last appeared on the ABC program in March 2008, while he was a U.S. senator. He also was a featured guest in November 2004, when promoting his book, “Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance.” His wife, Michelle Obama, was a featured guest co-host in June 2008.
Obama’s appearance is part of the show’s continuing “Red, White & View” campaign, which features political guests and discussions. Barbara Walters, creator/executive producer and co-host of “The View,” will make an in-studio appearance to speak with Obama. Walters underwent heart valve replacement surgery in May.
Obama is the first sitting president to appear on a daytime talk show, according to ABC. He also became the first incumbent president to appear on a late-night comedy show, NBC has said, when he visited “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.”
Vice President Joe Biden appeared on the “The View” in April.
