President Obama is headed back to late night. Next Tuesday (April 24), the president will make his first appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, when the comedian takes his show to the University North Carolina.
Obama will kick-off a three-state college tour next week visiting North Carolina, Colorado, and Iowa, in hopes of snagging the pivotal college vote. The commander in chief will also call on Congress to hinder student loan interest rates from doubling, which will likely appeal to student voters.
Details behind his appearance are scarce, but there are plenty of topics of discussion that the president may want to entertain. This week has been full off ill-received attacks from the right-wing, including musician Ted Nugent calling him a criminal, Mitt Romney’s campaign aides calling him out for eating dog meat as a child, and Michele Bachmann using the terms “tar baby” in regards to his energy policy.
Fallon is becoming known for having high-profile political figures on his show. In February, First Lady Michelle Obama stopped by, and last fall, The Roots welcomed Bachmann with the Fishbone song “Lyin’ A– B–ch.”
