Jul 26, 2010  •  Post A Comment

For the first time ever on daytime television, a sitting U.S. president will visit a talk show this week. President Barack Obama will appear as a guest on ABC’s "The View" on Thursday, July 29, at 11 a.m. ET.

In a statement, Barbara Walters, co-producer and one of the hosts of the show, said, “We are so pleased and honored that President Obama will be a guest on ‘The View.’ The president last appeared on the program in March 2008 while he was still a senator, and First Lady Michelle Obama was a featured guest co-host in June 2008. This shows that both the president and first lady feel that our show is an influential and important source of information and news. I’m also going to appear on ‘The View’ Thursday for the first time since my open heart surgery in May. I will return full time in September.”



  1. I don’t care who’s on there, I won’t be watching. I can’t stand that Elisabeth, or Sherri for that matter, but Elisabeth is the worst!

  2. Also, Why Is Barbara Walters Coming Back Just For This Interview? If She Is Fully Recovered From Her Heart Surgery, Then She Come Back Full-Time!!!!!!!! If “American Idol” Is Going To Clean House, Then It’s Time To Clean House On “The View”.

  3. Who cares? Is it going to improve anything our government is doing?

  4. I didn’t elect this president, don’t ask me… What he does with his presidency doesn’t shock me a bit (being a show off going on ‘The View’). I wouldn’t have voted for McCain either. But don’t chop me for being a Republican or Dem… I voted for the underdog in the primaries!

  5. Who cares? YOU should care what your President has to say about YOUR country. He is doing the best he can with what he was left with! Let’s not forget that!

  6. dont be haters whats wrong with the president being on the view hes doing all he can for us so if u think u can do a better job then y dont you run for president or just shut up dont be jealous stop making a big del and quit putting down our president
