Given that these are the final weeks of Obama’s presidency that will transition into a Trump presidency (barring something crazy happening by way of faithless electors), this interview on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah will be more historic than it should be. If any other presidential candidate on either side had won the election, it would have the potential to be more of a footnote. Since a reality TV star is now set to be POTUS, appearances on satirical comedy programs and late night are given as more weight than they ever have.
Honestly, we’d be surprised if the conversation was very funny as there are more important matters than getting to bits. Still, Obama will go down as one of the funniest President and it would be hard to imagine him not taking to opportunity to deliver another zinger on The Daily Show.
We don’t know exactly what will happen during this appearance, but it should be a good reminder that Obama will be sticking around fighting to maintain his legacy and prevent the unraveling of democracy.
Tune in Monday, December 12th at 11PM for this inevitably historic moment.
