Daily Show's John Oliver Goes To The White House

Posted: Updated:

As CNN's Political Ticker reported Wednesday, the Daily Show's John Oliver is on his way to the White House:

The White House briefing room is getting a visit from the Daily Show Wednesday. Correspondent John Oliver is speaking with White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs and several members of the press corps at the White House for an upcoming segment for the Comedy Central show.

The Washington Times' Jon Ward was there for Oliver's appearance, and has the details:

As we sat in the White House briefing room waiting for Robert Gibbs to emerge and begin the daily briefing, John Oliver stood in the back of the packed room against a wall on the left side and pretended to fall asleep or nod off while the Daily Show cameraman taped him from across the room. I wonder if that will be cut into their package and shown as if he is doing that while Gibbs is answering questions.
