I thought this was very interesting and informative.
I noticed that Maher tried to lead the President to remark on some fairly controversial issues like legalizing marijuana, single payer health care, and for profit news outlets, but he was fairly deft in avoiding too much controversy.
I also noticed how deferential Maher was and how star struck he was to be in the presence of a man who he clearly admires greatly.
I should also point out that the rest of the show Friday night was not exactly a laugh fest.
Bill Maher shared his stress over this election with the audience and his panel, and at times I began to think he might have to take a break in the middle of the show to go smoke a little pot and calm down.
However I really cannot say that I blame him as my own emotions have been all over the place and at this point I just want the whole damn thing to end so that I can start worrying about something else, ANYTHING else.
BTW this is the full 37 minute interview which is longer than the 18 minute one shown on Real Time last night, and yes it will help ease your mind.
