Biden, Obama, Clinton join 'SmartLess' podcast ahead of NYC fundraiser

President Biden and former Presidents Obama and Clinton joined the “SmartLess” podcast on Thursday while they were all together in New York ahead of a fundraiser.

The episode with the three presidents on “SmartLess,” which is hosted by comedians Jason Bateman, Sean Hayes and Will Arnett, will air at a later date, according to the White House.

Vice President Harris joined the podcast in 2020, as have other notable guests including football star Peyton Manning, actors Natalie Portman and Arnold Schwarzenegger and MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow. 

Biden is in New York with Obama and Clinton for a star-studded event in the Big Apple on Thursday evening. The event is expected to draw more than 5,000 supporters and raise more than $25 million, according to the campaign.

The event, along with the podcast taping, marks a rare instance where Biden, Obama and Clinton are together in the same room.

Obama, a major surrogate for Biden this cycle, hitched a ride on Air Force One with Biden to New York City earlier Thursday.

The event was spearheaded by Biden campaign co-Chair Jeffrey Katzenberg, finance Chair Rufus Gifford, Biden Victory Fund finance Chair Chris Korge and Anna Wintour.

Prominent guests from Mindy Kaling and Ben Platt to Queen Latifah and Lizzo are expected to perform, and late-night host Stephen Colbert will moderate a conversation with the three presidents.
