President Barack Obama stepped way out on a limb to appear with comedian Zach Galifianakis on “Funny or Die,” according to an ABC News report on Tuesday. Obama took the risky opportunity to appear on the online interview show to promote Obamacare – the Affordable Care Act – on Tuesday. “Funny or Die” is a website of comedic proportions.
Zach Galifianakis, a comedian, usually gives awkward questions to celebrities who appear on his webcasts. The interview with President Barack Obama was no different as Galifianakis hurled incredibly irritating questions at the president. Prior to getting an opportunity to promote Obamacare, Galifianakis asked Obama how it felt to be “the last black president” as well as about the false notion that he was born in Kenya – an old topic that Obama would likely prefer not to visit.
Obama got his own zinger in, too. When Galifianakis, who is a star of the “Hangover” movies, asked Obama if he’d want a third term as president – which isn’t possible due to the current United States Constitution – Obama told the comedian, “If I ran again it would be sort of like doing a third “Hangover” movie. It didn’t really work out very well, did it?”
