"Michelle, she had like a cleaning glove, one of those yellow ones, she's scouring the bathroom", Obama told Letterman in the first episode of his new Netflix series, "My Next Guest Needs No Introduction". "I have been nothing but lucky, and the luck continues ... you are the first president I truly and fully respected".
Ironically, Letterman may talk more politics with some of those guests than he did with Obama.
During the episode, Letterman also talked to Senator John Lewis, an instrumental figure in the Civil Rights Movement, about marching on Selma, Alabama and the path that was laid down to eventually bring Obama to the presidential office. It's quite another to curate an hour-long interview that keeps itchy Netflix fingers from peeking over at the punchier Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee instead. In a teaser, Letterman gave a simple explanation of why he made a decision to host a new show: "You never know when you might learn something, and that's what this is about for me".
Watching David Letterman interview Barack Obama becomes a fine hour of television precisely for the reasons that, these days, you might not expect.
President Barack Obama with David Letterman, whose interview with the former commander-in-chief airs January 12, 2018, on Netflix.

Letterman kicks off his six-part, monthly series for Netflix on Friday with the 44 President of the United States, Barack Obama, aka that person who makes you even sadder that he's not president right now because of how quickly 45 has turned the country into a shithole.
While Obama lamented the fact that things move slower in the world outside the White House, he said that overall, he does not necessarily miss the daily life of a President. "Do you have a staff?" the former president jocularly asked Letterman, sporting a flowing white beard. I just did not know her in the instant way in which most of us know Howard Stern or George Clooney.
Vanity Fair writer Laura Bradley expressed disappointment with the "bland" show failing to go deeper with Obama, as well as dodging Trump discussion.
At the word "planet", the audience laughed, but Obama continued his thought.
"It is a major setback to the hopes and dreams and aspirations of a people", Lewis says. Why wasn't I aware? There is, however, a studio audience - the premiere was taped last fall at the City College of NY, in an auditorium filled with mostly young people who had no clue who Letterman's guests would be. What's revealed here is a newer (but older) Dave, and that is equal to the main attraction of the guests, though Letterman would clearly not like that notion. The next episode, featuring George Clooney, streams February 9.
