Obama set for 'The Colbert Report' visit
NEW YORK - Comedy Central says President Obama will be on hand next week as Stephen Colbert begins his final two weeks as the fake cable news bloviator on "The Colbert Report."
Obama is scheduled to appear on Monday, Dec. 8 during Colbert's one-day visit to Washington. Colbert is taking over for David Letterman on CBS' "Late Show" next year and his last appearance in character on Comedy Central will be on Dec. 18.
Colbert's Washington visit has the long-winded title of "Stephen Colbert Presents: Mr. Colbert Goes to Washington D.C. Ya Later, Legislator: Partisan is Such Sweet Sorrow: A Colbert Victory Lap, '014."
It will be Obama's third visit to the show, his second as president, and his first live. The first two were pre-taped contributions.
