For his 60th birthday, Bill Maher has turned to fans for help. He wants Barack Obama to appear on "Real Time With Bill Maher" before the president leaves office.
Is it so much to ask? The media-savvy Obama did "Running Wild With Bear Grylls."
Maher asked fans to sign a petition urging Obama to visit "Real Time," which started its 14th season on HBO with Friday's telecast. Maher stressed that Obama has done virtually every other talk show.

Maher also noted his tireless support for Obama, and his request burned up Google Trends.
What might be keeping Obama from "Real Time"? Maher's atheism and marijuana use could be stumbling blocks. But might Obama open up in ways he hasn't on the freewheeling, F-bomb-dropping "Real Time"?
Having supported this President unconditionally, do your backers a favor, schedule some time on Real Time!
