The visit has already been taped, and details are under wraps. Not everyone is thrilled about the leader of the free world joining a daytime coffee klatch. None other than former View co-host Rosie O’Donnell criticized the decision.
“I have mixed feelings about that. I don’t really think sitting presidents should go do fluffy daytime TV shows,” she said in comments quoted on a number of Web sites. “Maybe an hour on ‘Oprah’ or something…I don’t really want to see him on ‘The View’.”

C-host Joy Behar told CNN that Obama was “charming as usual” and added “We had some laughs with him.”
Behar also has a show on CNN’s spinoff channel HLN.
Obama said he chose to appear in the program because First Lady Michelle Obama is a fan. He has appeared on the show before.
“Look, I was trying to find a show that Michelle actually watched, and so I thought this is it, right here,” he said, according to a snippet provided by ABC.
