On Thursday, MSNBC host Chris Matthews, who infamously claimed that President Obama gave him a “thrill” up his leg, will be interviewing Obama at American University in Washington, D.C. Obama will also answer questions from the student audience, as well as some questions submitted online. Obama recently held an off-the-record meeting with several MSNBC hosts at the White House in the aftermath of his failing Obamacare rollout.
MSNBC’s website touted: “Obama’s interview with Matthews comes following the rocky rollout of HealthCare.gov, an interim nuclear deal with Iran, renewed calls for immigration reform, and with new budget negotiations on the horizon.” But what will Matthews ask Obama about? “Matthews will discuss a number of topics with Obama, including voter suppression, healthcare, political gridlock in D.C., growing dissatisfaction with the government and more.”
“Softball” with Chris Matthews will air at 7 p.m. ET.
