*President Obama is headed into fake enemy territory.
“I am so honored to be sitting down with the man who sat down with Bill O’Reilly,” Stephen Colbert said on his show Thursday, announcing that POTUS would be joining him on Dec. 8.
The satirically-conservative host will be broadcasting from George Washington University in Washington D.C., under the subtitle: “Stephen Colbert Presents: Mr. Colbert Goes to Washington D.C. Ya Later, Legislator: Partisan is Such Sweet Sorrow: A Colbert Victory Lap, ‘014.”
Obama has previously appeared on “The Colbert Report” twice. In 2008, then-Sen. Obama appeared via satellite in an episode also featuring Democratic competitors Hillary Clinton and John Edwards. In 2009 he had a traditional sit-down with Colbert.
Obama has spent a far greater time over at The Daily Show, where he appeared four times as a senator and twice as president, most recently in 2012.
Colbert ends his “Colbert Report” run on Dec. 18 and will take over CBS’ The Late Show next year.
