Rachel Maddow debunks idea that US Presidents have never appeared on comedy shows

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow debunks the assertion of some political pundits on the right that President Barack Obama’s appearance on the Funny or Die web video “Between Two Ferns” debased the office of the presidency.

Maddow features Presidents Dwight Eisenhower, Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, and George W. Bush – all who appeared with popular comedians at some point in their presidency.

As Maddow says, if you are concerned about the “dignity of the presidency” being imperiled by these appearances, “you should probably lighten up.”
