Obama: Fox viewers 'living on a different planet' than NPR listeners

"I did not miss the trappings of the office", Obama told the former "Late Show" host during the hourlong interview. "Both men seem rusty at the art of banter". "They're off their game".

"The interview doesn't produce any surprising or newsworthy statements from Obama", critic Hank Stuever complains in the Washington Post.

"I slept in, which I was pretty happy about", Obama, 56, told Letterman about the morning of January 21, 2017, the day after he left the White House.

The discussion meanders along the surface, touching on Russian interference in US elections and the state of discourse in American society - though never deeply.

The former president was referring to how the Russians were able to "exploit" different kinds of USA voters, who were "operating in completely different universes".

Former President Obama said in an interview that Fox News viewers and NPR listeners are living on different planets in terms of what news they consume. Recorded in the fall and aired December 27, the former president said that leaders shouldn't use social media to stoke division.

"At a certain point you just live in a bubble, and that's part of why our politics are so polarized right now", he said. Lewis believes if there's no march, if there's no movement, there's no Obama presidency. "I'm at Bed Bath & Beyond picking out wire hangers".

"Although Letterman is too experienced and too wry by nature to engage in outright platitudes, his series' premiere feels like a lot of generalities and old news masquerading as something more profound", she wrote. The New Yorker's Ian Crouch lavished praise on Obama for his looseness and humor, saying he would make a good television host himself, although adding-less critically-that the ex-president's remarks during the hour-long show have mostly been said before.

A few months ago I saw Letterman interview Al Franken here in NY, a bit before Franken's current controversies.

Fox News has also given a platform to Trump and others who have floated the conspiracy that Obama was not born in the United States, according to Mediaite. It was during this segment that Letterman first mentioned Trump by name, asking Lewis about the degree to which the current administration's policies are a detriment to the eternal fight for social equality.

"Without being just flat-out specific about it", Letterman says. "My Next Guest" isn't the biggest project on Netflix's slate, but it's nevertheless nice to see Letterman back in front of an audience, in part because one suspects - with these guests - that he'd be just as happy to chat without one.

"It is a major setback to the hopes, the dreams and aspirations of a people", Lewis, 77, replies. "And I see Malia, and I think, 'I just want to say hello, '" he told the former POTUS.

Prince died in April 2016 at the age of 57. "I went to Selma, Alabama". Why was I not aware?

Letterman: "I have been nothing but lucky".

When Obama first appeared onstage as a surprise guest, he received more rapturous applause than the master of ceremonies. But reinventing the wheel isn't necessary if watching Letterman be allowed to be serious, to talk at length to people he's interested in, leads in turn to a little more insight into Letterman himself.

My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, featuring Letterman's Obama interview, is now streaming on Netflix.
