We’ll See You Your President Obama and Raise You One Steve Harvey

So the big news is that Steve Harvey scored an interview with the President that will air on Friday. We didn’t even realize he had a side gig and we are curious to see how he will address “selfie-gate”, aka the stupidest political “story” of the year.

Don’t know about you, readers, but after watching the clip above we feel like President Obama should have brought Harvey along to all his press events.

Reporter: “Mr. President, what do you have to say about the problems with the ACA website rollout?”

Obama: “Yes, well, we are all very…uh…disappointed about this…uh…unacceptable…OH HEY LOOK it’s Steve Harvey! He’ll be handling your questions from here while I take Bo for a walk.”

Harvey has already patented all the best GIF-worthy reactions to questions he’d rather not answer:

steve-harvey-o

Think about it.
