ABC senior White House correspondent Jake Tapper was on “The Colbert Report” last night to talk about the lame duck congress.
“It’s always a challenge to go on comedy shows,” Tapper told TVNewser, “but my goal is never to be funny – it’s to get out alive. I’ve learned the following tricks: try to answer the questions as if it were a news interview, smile, and sit up straight.”
The correspondent is no stranger to Stephen Colbert, having appeared on his show before.
“That said, I’ve known Stephen for six years – we bumped into each other while covering the Iowa caucus and then again in South Carolina before that state’s primary. So I think we have something of a friendship and a rapport. Hopefully.”
