President Obama drew an unintentional laugh from the audience of The Daily Show Wednesday when he added a “but” to his famous campaign slogan, “Yes, we can.”
The slogan has been the target of much derision from progressive and conservative critics of the Obama presidency alike, a fact that was not lost on Jon Stewart’s audience Wednesday at a special taping of the Daily Show in Washington, DC.
At one point, Stewart asked the president if he was now operating on the principle of “Yes, we can, with certain conditions.”
Obama replied, “I think I would say, ‘Yes we can, but–‘”
That drew laughter from the 550-strong audience that packed DC’s Harman Center for the Arts. It was the first time that a sitting president appeared on the Daily Show, though Obama appeared on the show during his 2008 campaign.
