Barack Obama Guests On BETWEEN TWO FERNS with Zach Galifianakis

There could be many reasons that President Barack Obama would be in an episode of a web series, especially one as satirical as Funny or Die’s Between Two Ferns with Zach GalifianakisHe could be sharpening his comedy chops for the upcoming White House Correspondents Dinner, which is a great opportunity for Obama to roast many people on Capitol Hill and in the media. He could be appealing to that ever elusive but much sought after young vote by being on one of the Internet’s most beloved web series. Or he could also be cleverly plugging Healthcare.gov while matching wits with Galifianakis.

After watching the POTUS on Between Two Ferns, I’d say he pretty much accomplishes all of the above and makes a case for his being the funniest President of all time.

How do you think he did? Let’s put politics aside and post our reviews in the comments below….

  • Some of you either (a) enjoy the sketch for what it is, (b) develop a sense of humor, or (c) pull the pineapple coated in lead out of your asses.

    Would you rather the subject have been Bush’s two wars that his administration started based on false, fabricated information?

    If you’re outraged about affordable healthcare for American citizens, I hope you’re even more concerned about the two wars.

  • That is by far the stupiest thing I have ever seen! The pr on this horrendous failed legislation has been embarrassing at best. Broinsurance, the Richard Simmons thing, etc. who is running this ad campaign? They all need to be fired! While trying to be cool and hip he looks silly and childish. If the legislation was any good at all they wouldn’t need all the ridiculous ads to help sell it. If it was good it would be selling itself!! Wake up folks!

  • If this was a plug for Obama care it was pretty bad. The President allowed Zach to ask hard hitting questions regarding Obamacare in the name of comedy that B.O. would never allow other news networks ro do. Everything this President does is carefully scripted. He can’t think without a teleprompter in front of him. Kinda of reminds me of Ted on the Mary Tyler Moore show who read his news reports but did not have an understanding or clue as what he read. Obama might as well be reading promptings in a foreign language. The answers they had him read back made him look bad and I am surprised he allowed that. Obama is a wonderful parrot, He is a child compared to Putin on the world stage. Long live King Obama

  • Could these comments be any more fake? How desperate can they get? Talk about “Jumping the Shark.” Then to fill in the comment section with such plants that gush over this stupid performance is beyond childish. This is the most ridiculous administration in history. It will be nice when we get an adult back in the White House!!

  • He is such a people’s president, down to earth, funny, sings, love everyone…………….not a pompous ass like others. Clinton was the same, very personable.

  • It was kind of you, Zach, to potentially sacrifice your popularity by feeding this humorless POTUS your lines. It didn’t work for me. You have lost a fan.

  • The comments section on this video just proves how brainless people can be. This is not a “shameless plug” for ACA. It may be an informational piece coupled with a bit of dry comedy, but in no way a “shameless plug.” When will American’s realize that fox news doesn’t have your best interest in mind. ACA is a benefit to you and no media coverage is a “shameless plug” because it shouldn’t involve shame. Your laws on health care are already mind blowing and somehow you think that making it affordable for you is a bad thing? Unbelievable.

  • I just love President Obama! He is intelligent, eloquent, personable, and funny…even when not prompted! How fortunate for all of you in the U.S… how forward and evolved you are to have Barack Obama as your Commander and Chief.
    It is so important to everyone that someone in charge is not afraid to TRY to make things better. The unfortunate thing is that this person becomes the scape goat when ideas don’t work out…still, cudos to him and his administration! Certainly someone to be proud of as a great and liberating nation. Sometimes ideas don’t work out as they should…let’s hope the next administration has the tenacity and courage to carry these ideas to positive fruition and to the benefit of all!

  • Well written sketch. The president is funny, but it is entirely scripted so Zach or others wrote the whole thing. Look at the way the president looks above Zach at cue cards, even when he’s saying a joke. But well done.

  • I don’t always like Galifinakis’ awkward comedy style, but juxtaposed against the President, it was spot on & so funny. President Obama has some comedic chops too. I lol’ed several times.

  • I think sometimes we forget why we voted for him 6 years ago. President Obama is probably the best spoken president in a long time. That said his administration made me go libertarian -_-
