President Obama got the Zach Galifianakis treatment on the latest edition of “Between Two Ferns.”
Obama decided to bite the bullet and appear on the parody interview show in order to sell his healthcare law to a younger audience. When the president brought it up, Galifianakis responded, “Oh yeah, I heard about that. That’s the thing that doesn’t work. Why would you get the guy that created the Zune to make your website?"
Obama’s comic timing left something to be desired. But his best line came when Galifianakis mentioned that he couldn’t run for president three times.
“If I ran a third time, it would sort of be like doing a third ‘Hangover’ movie,” the president shot back. “It didn’t really work out very well, did it?”
