Samantha Bee is going full presidential.

The host of Full Frontal will do a sit-down interview with President Barack Obama, TBS announced on Wednesday.

The interview will air Oct. 31 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT, just eight days before the election. 

While Obama represents her biggest name guest to date, Bee spoke with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg, Chilean President Michelle Bachelet, Marshallese President Hilda Heine, Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic, as well as former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, in a segment from this Monday’s episode.

According to the press release, the interview will touch on issues ranging from from Obama’s legacy to the challenges awaiting the next president “when she takes office in January. (Yes, ‘she.’ Spoiler alert.)

It also noted: “America’s male president… wore a flattering wool suit paired with sensible leather flats.”

Obama, who is drumming up support for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, popped up earlier this week on Jimmy Kimmel Live, talking politics and reading some Mean Tweets, including one from Donald Trump.
