Zach Galifianakis is clearly playing on the edge with his guests on Between the Ferns spoof chat show. And guess who came on the show, trying to ‘plug a message’? Well, it was none other than the President of the United States, Barack Obama.
Wondering if Barack Obama could escape the missiles of provocative comments shot his way? Trust the President – he gave back as much as he got! Between ‘Really?’ ‘I don’t want to answer that question’ ‘You think so’, he tried shutting up Zach by calling him overweight, telling him that the Hangover series was ‘carried’ by Zach’s rival, Bradley Cooper and admitted with a straight face that he was surprised to know that people actually watch this show.
When asked what he had come to plug, Obama instantly added, “I wouldn’t be here with you today if I didn’t have something to plug.” Introducing healthcare.gov, he said the gen next feels they are invincible and they all should sign up for the health insurance.
Obama had said in an earlier interview that if he had a son, he would not let him play football. Zach tried to suggest that he was a nerd for not loving the game, to which Obama lashed back by saying, “Do you think a woman like Michelle will marry a nerd?” When Zach asked can he ask Michelle, Obama say no way!
The show ends with the revelation of the secret location of Between the Ferns. Watch the hilarious clip…
The two argued over their birth certificates, which ended by Zach stating, “If I were president, I would make same-sex divorce illegal and then see how bad they want it.” Obama instantly quipped, “I think that’s why you are not president.”
