In 2012, Bill Maher donated $1m to President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign and, ever since, the HBO host has been trying to land an interview with the President on his Friday night show. Last night, Maher announced the good news: the President will appear on the November 4 edition of the show in a pre-taped interview at the White House!
Maher launched a petition in January to get Obama to do an interview, which scored over 100,000 signatures. The interview comes as Maher’s 2016 season, and the Election campaign, come to a close, and Obama will presumably use the interview to promote Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
Real Time airs Fridays on HBO. Next Friday’s gonna be a good one.
