Stephen Colbert’s ‘Late Show’ Books Michelle Obama [VIDEO]

“The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” has added another political player to its guest list: First Lady Michelle Obama will join the new CBS late-night show on Monday, Sept. 28.
“It’s always an honor to have the First Lady,” said host Stephen Colbert. “Better than that, it’s always fun!”
Obama will highlight Let Girls Learn, an initiative she launched with her husband that champions community-driven solutions and public-private partnerships to help reduce the barriers that prevent adolescent girls from achieving their full potential. She will also highlight her Reach Higher initiative, an effort to inspire every student in America to take charge of their future by completing their higher education, whether at a professional training program, a community college, or a four-year college or university. This initiative aims to rally the country around the importance of post-secondary education by exposing students to college and career opportunities, making financial aid and college affordability a reality, and inspiring and supporting academic and summer planning.
