There are some people who do not believe that dreams can come true but not for Steve Harvey because his dream of interviewing President Obama has finally came true. Harvey, a popular talk show host, did not discuss more on political controversies but rather he sees to it that his interview with the president is done in a light mode. They discussed about the family’s holiday plans, fatherhood and others. According to Harvey:
“Sitting down with the President is something I’ve always dreamt of doing, and I am honored to have the opportunity.”
“I’m grateful to President Obama for welcoming me and I’m thrilled to share this experience with all my viewers.”
When he was interviewed with NBC News, he revealed:
“I’m just a little boy from Welch, West Virginia that’s talking to the President of the United States. The greatest moment in that interview for me was when he was talking about his grandmother, who he misses. She passed in her eighties and my mom passed in her eighties and I said to the President, ‘I heard a rumor that your grandmother and my mother have met and that they are on the front row watching us right now.’ That was a really cool moment between me and the President and it meant a lot to him too so I felt pretty good about that.”
“I’ve met him before but this interview is a little different, you know. I think I talked to him the way most people don’t talk to the President. I told him I wanted a man-on-man interview. I don’t care about the politics, it’s not important to me. Look, he’s a great guy. There is a section of people that don’t agree with what he does, and then there are those of us that get it so I don’t have to go into that again. I said, let’s talk about family, let’s talk about the wives, let’s talk about Christmas, let’s talk about those girls, we’ve got girls the same age, and how he felt about fatherhood. It was pretty good.”
Isn’t it a great experience?
