President Obama Accepts Bill Maher's Invitation to Appear on Real Time

President Barack Obama has agreed to appear on Real Time With Bill Maher, nine months after the HBO talker’s host initiated a formal WhiteHouse.gov petition inviting the sitting POTUS to come on as a guest.

Maher announced the VIP booking during his Oct. 28 telecast (watch video above), saying, “I’m thrilled that the president has finally accepted our invitation to come on the show – just like with the country, he always comes through in the end.”

Maher sired the aforementioned petition in mid-January, after years of failing to book the 43rd president, and he even leaned on viewers to honor his own 60th birthday (on Jan. 20) by helping acquire the 100,000 signatures needed to secure an official White House review of the request.

Maher is scheduled to tape his interview with President Obama on Tuesday, to air next Friday, Nov. 4 — four days before the election that will determine the next Commander-in-Chief. Will you be tuning in?
