Evo on the Daily Show

The last time Evo Morales made it on the airwaves of the Daily Show, it was a pretty light-hearted affair. However, I got word that the Bolivian president in New York City for the UN Summit, will appear in person with Jon Stewart on Tuesday, September 25. From the Comedy Central website.

Bolivian President Evo Morales will appear as a guest on the Emmy┬« and Peabody┬« Award-winning “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” on Tuesday, September 25 at 11:00 p.m. (ET/PT).The visit by President Morales marks the second time a sitting head of state has appeared on “The Daily Show.” General Pervez Musharraf, President of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, was the first, appearing on September 26, 2006. In addition, former President Jimmy Carter appeared on the show in December 2005 and former President Bill Clinton has appeared three times, most recently last Thursday.

Luckily, the interview will be online the following day. Let’s hope he knows that it is a comedy show and doesn’t spout off some ridiculous statements like his new ally. It would have been interesting to find out who made the connection and accepted the invitation.
