Salazar and his Stetson to appear on ‘The Daily Show’
Will he cowboy up or not?
Interior Sec. Ken Salazar is set to appear on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” for a one-on-one interview Thursday.
Says CNN Political Ticker:
Interior officials are expecting Salazar to at least get ribbed about his trademark Stetson and bolo tie, which he showed off when Obama introduced him as Interior Secretary-designate during the presidential transition.
Interior spokeswoman Kendra Barkoff told CNN that Salazar is looking forward to talking about “his work implementing President Obama’s vision for building a clean energy economy and his efforts to protect America’s treasured landscapes. Time permitting, of course, the Secretary will be glad to offer Stewart some fashion tips, including how best to sport a cowboy hat and bolo tie.”
It’s probably a safe bet that Stewart will also tweak the secretary about the scandal in the previous administration, which featured Interior officials improperly getting sex and drugs from oil company executives they regulated.
After Salazar laid down the law at the scandal-ridden Minerals Management Service days after being confirmed by the Senate to lead Interior, Stewart may not know what’s he’s gotten himself into.
