Steve Harvey Interviews Obama, Avoids Politics, Defends Presidential Selfie
Steve Harvey got the chance for a one-on-one interview the President of the United States this week, a rare opportunity for a journalist let alone a comedian.
Harvey made one item clear up front about his exclusive chat--he didn't ask President Barack Obama any political questions.
With that messy business out of the way, Harvey threw Obama a series of holiday-themed softballs according to the comedian's recap of their Q&A. Later, Harvey described the interview to the press and even defended Obama from taking a "selfie" at a great leader's memorial service, an action so tacky even Jon Stewart said it was "kinda fucked up."
Harvey said he asked the president about gifts he plans to give this holiday season, family and how he feels about his daughters dating.
"He has developed some theories about dating," Harvey told Muse. "I was pretty proud of my president on that one."
