Watch This: Obama Visits 'The Daily Show'

The POTUS addressed his sleepy performance at the first debate and traded jokes with Jon Stewart.

Comedy Central

On Thursday, during his stop at The Daily Show, President Barack Obama was shown two photos of himself and his wife, Michelle Obama. In one the FLOTUS is smiling, and in the other she's sporting a bit of a frown.

With a smirk on his face, Jon Stewart, host of the faux news show, asked Obama which debate the couple was at in each photo and then joked about Obama's performance at his first matchup with Mitt Romney, saying that sometimes he takes sleep-inducing cold medicine before his show, too.

Watch President Obama talk about the debate and other political issues below:

Editor's note: A previous version of this article had only featured part two of the interview. We regret the omission.
