THE DEEP END…TIPS FROM THE POOL
White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs addresses POTUS’s upcoming appearance on The Daily Show in D.C. in the final question of a press gaggle aboard Air Force One en route to Portland, Ore. Wednesday afternoon. The D.C. show tapes on Oct. 27.
Q Quick question. The Daily Show — why did he agree to appear on that? And is there any significance to that so close to Election Day?
MR. GIBBS: Well, look, I think it’s a program that younger voters and even occasionally older voters, the 39-year-old age group, catch, if they can remember to stay up late. No, I think it’s a great way to appeal to a younger voter audience that is a big part of the President’s base.
