This is one “October surprise” we can’t wait to see.
Samantha Bee will interview President Barack Obama on Halloween night, TBS announced Wednesday. She is the first female late-night host to interview a U.S. president. Bee, a former Daily Show correspondent, has already made history by becoming the first woman to helm a satirical news program.
The “Full Frontal” host, who has received much praise for her criticism of Donald Trump, said that she and Obama will discuss “the challenges the new commander in chief will face when she takes office in January.” (Emphasis ours.)
Most recently, Bee has mocked the Republican nominee over his bizarre abortion comments and his insistence that the election is “rigged.” She’s also defended Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in the face of sexist criticisms.
“Just keep your eyes on the prize and take that high road straight to the White House,” she said last month of Clinton.
Bee’s interview with the president airs on Monday at 10:30 p.m.
