President Obama and Marc Maron?

WTF with Marc Maron

The Slate interview with Marc Maron is surely funnier than his interview yesterday with President Obama, which will be released Monday:

Did you put out snacks for everyone?

No, I didn’t put out anything. But they could use the bathroom. My one bathroom.

Then at some point the snipers came. You saw these guys pull up, and it was like, okay. These are the dudes with the big guns. Then they went up on my neighbor Dennis’s roof.

Poor Dennis.

No, Dennis was thrilled. Dennis is retired. This is very exciting for Dennis.

So then after everyone set up, there’s LAPD on my other neighbor’s deck, two snipers on Dennis’s roof. Secret service spread out in front, LAPD around the perimeter on the bottom of the hill.

They tell me to go outside and there’s a flurry of activity at the bottom of the driveway. One big police vehicle goes by. Another police vehicle goes by. And then a big vehicle drives up. All of the sudden there’s a couple Secret Service people, and some White House people, and then in the midst of them all I see a hand go up. And he says: “Marc!”...

I mostly watch sports on TV, but Maron's program is one I always enjoy.
