New York City - Chuck Todd, the new host of NBC's Meet the Press, recently interviewed President Obama and we imagined how the interview would have gone if Todd had conducted the conversation as one part himself, one part James Lipton, host of Inside the Actor's Studio. Our imaginings are thus presented to you here:
Todd: Thank you, Mr. President, for joining us today for what I'm sure will be an instructive and insightful, yet whimsical interview.
Obama: No one on my staff said anything about whimsical. Uh, hey!
(turning to staff member) Did you know anything about this?
Todd: Fantastic! Let's get started. Mr. President, with the high tension around the globe and the threat ISIS presents to both the Middle East and America and her allies, what kind of animal would you least like to be?
Obama: I have no idea, uh, I'll say a lemur.
Todd: Very well. There will be another open enrollment period soon for Obamacare. What turns you on the most?
Obama: A freshly cut golf course.
Todd: As the midterm elections approach, your party seems to be in big trouble. As you deal with fellow Democrats and help them promote you agenda in a positive light to help them in their own political races, what sound or noise do you hate the most?
Obama: The screeching of car brakes. You just know something bad is about to happen after that sound.
Todd: Did you hear that sound just before your second term started?
Obama: What? No! That's not what I meant.
Todd: Moving on. You recently said you had no strategy for dealing with ISIS. Now you say a plan is being put together. What profession would you least like to attempt?
Obama: What the hell does that have to.....? I don't know, I guess maybe being a freak at the circus?
Todd: And finally Mr. President, with the national debt being as high as it is, if Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
Obama: Uh, welcome homie! You did a great job making America a better place for all who live there, and a ton of illegals too, HAHA!
Todd: And would you like to hear Him say those words before or after the lightning bolts strike you?
