On the Late Late Show.
Ryan Tubridy has revealed some of the guests who will be joining him on the Late Late Show tomorrow night, with the US’ Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases,Dr Anthony Fauci among the line-up.
Speaking on his RTÉ Radio 1 show on Thursday morning, Tubridy also announced that former President of Ireland Mary McAleese and world champion boxer Kellie Harrington will be among his guests. The Late Late Show later tweeted that Jedward will be around for a chat too.
Of Fauci’s appearance, Tubridy said:
“[US President Trump] Has pretty much taken him off the TV so that he doesn’t outshine him, because, actually, Fauci is trusted and liked. And that’s why, in some ways, Fauci is available to talk to us tomorrow night, because Trump doesn’t want him anywhere near American TV. So, I’ll talk to him.”
“Imagine trying to protect the health of an enormous nation like that while being undermined by your own president… I mean, it is impossible. But Fauci, Dr Fauci, has handled himself with such dignity and skill and professionalism and courtesy; it is extraordinary how he keeps going. It is amazing. I look forward to his company no end.”
The Late Late Show tomorrow on RTÉ One at 9.35pm.
