Ryan Seacrest interviews President Obama
WaPo TeamTV's Emily Yahr reports:
If Comedy Central can stage a rally in Washington to restore sanity, it's just a hop skip and a jump to the the host of "American Idol" sitting down to interview the President of the United States on election day.
Yes, Ryan Seacrest (Seabiscuit to The TV Column) continued on Tuesday to audition for the gig he had tried but failed to land -- taking over for Larry King on CNN's primetime -- when he interviewed President Obama on his nationally syndicated radio show "On-Air with Ryan Seacrest" on Tuesday morning.
But he totally perked up -- Seabiscuit that is -- when he got to The Fun Stuff: Such as, what did Malia and Sasha dress up as for Halloween?! (Answer: Sour Patch girl and a turkey, respectively)
Seabiscuit also grilled the president as to whether he'd turned off his BlackBerry during date night with the First Lady. He also demanded to know whether Obama had the same problems that the faux-president faced in the flick "The American President" when it came to ordering flowers.
Yes, it's exactly like "The American President" in re ordering flowers, turns out.
Seabiscuit wonders if Obama was offended when Comedy Central late-night host Jon Stewart called the president "dude" during his "Daily Show" interview last week.
Bulletin: Obama was not offended. Turns out, he's been called far worse.
