Last night, President Obama made his last appearance on “The Daily Show” before Jon Stewart leaves the show in August.

"I can't believe you're leaving before me," the president said at the beginning of the interview. Obama has appeared on the show seven times before – three times while in the White House.

NPR TV critic Eric Deggans joins Here & Now‘s Meghna Chakrabarti to discuss how Obama did last night, and his overall track record on late-night TV.
