Michelle Obama to Visit “Colbert Report”

“The Colbert Report” announced that First Lady Michelle Obama would visit the show on April 11.

It’s an indication of just how far the show has evolved. Lawmakers once avoided the show, even as they embraced “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,” because of the unpredictable nature of Colbert’s comedy.

That has changed, as figures such as House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) have made recent appearances on the show.
