Stewart Regrets Calling the President “Dude”

Yesterday I attended the Rally to Restore Sanity on the Mall. It felt like a lot of people. I thought it could be as high as 500,000. Comedy Central estimated 250,000; CBS reported that estimated the crowd to be about 215,000. I will go with 250,000. More on my thoughts about the rally later…

Jon told the Entertainment Weekly that he regrets calling President Obama “Dude.”

One of Stewart’s regrets during his interview with President Obama? Calling the commander-in-chief “dude.” “I don’t think there’s any interview that I’ve ever done that I don’t end up going, ‘I wish I had done that better,’” he said. “But I also called King Abdullah of Jordan … ‘broseph.’” Stewart said he is fond of the spontaneity of his segments. “[The interviews] can also be the most revelatory,” he said. “At times it’s a high-wire act. At times it works, at times it doesn’t. But again, the joy of it is trying.”
