I’m SAG and AFTRA
Guess what I got in my inbox this morning? A press release from Comedy Central announcing that President Obama is going to make his fifth appearance on The Daily Show. How does this man find the time??? We should stop calling them appearances, and start calling them cameos.
Here’s part of the release sent:
PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA TO APPEAR AS A GUEST ON
“THE DAILY SHOW WITH JON STEWART”
WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 27 AT 11:00 P.M.
NEW YORK, October 20, 2010 — President Barack Obama will make his fifth appearance as a guest on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” on Wednesday, October 27 at 11:00 p.m. (ET/PT), his first since taking office as President of the United States of America. President Obama’s last appearance on “The Daily Show” was on October 29, 2008, just days before he was elected President. He has also appeared on April 21, 2008, August 22, 2007 and November 7, 2005.
How about focusing on being a President rather than making so many TV appearances? I’m sorry, but it’s getting super old. Mythbusters, and now The Daily Show? I’m not mad at The Daily Show for having him on, it’s a big get for them…but at some point Obama’s camp should tell the Prez to tone it down a bit. It’s almost a joke at this point. I wonder, did Oprah have something to do with this?
