Jill Biden and I started this initiative to make sure that this country - which is a grateful nation - to make sure that we do whatever we can to honor the service of our troops, our veterans, and their families.
First Lady Michelle Obama • Promoting Joining Forces, her campaign with Jill Biden, on The Colbert Report. Last night, Stephen Colbert tweeted “Supporting our troops takes more than wearing a ribbon, unless that ribbon says, “I just hired a U.S. Veteran.” @JoiningForces.” His guest on Wednesday night’s show was FLOTUS Michelle Obama; she was there to promote Joining Forces, “the initiative she and Jill Biden co-founded last year to encourage support for military families.” The goal of the initiative is to reduce the unemployment rate of veterans.

Report: Family emergency led “Colbert Report” to stop production

Let me say that the President could not have been nicer, especially to my mother. I have some lovely pictures of her with him.
Stephen Colbert • Discussing his interactions with George W. Bush at the White House Correspondent’s Association Dinner, where he made a controversial 2006 appearance. Colbert was asked about the situation by a Redditor in a lengthy, out-of-character interview that he largely wrote in all-caps. Other interesting topics covered: A congressman tried to walk off the stage while he was shooting in DC (but they got him to stay), he always tells his interviewees that he’s in character (“I admire Sacha Baron Cohen, but I am not doing Ali G.”) and he claims that the dumber he sounds about a topic, the more he knows about it. Fun read. source (viafollow)
