Obama ‘Between Two Ferns’ appearance just an ad for Obamacare

The Internet is on fire this morning over President Barack Obama’s appearance on the extremely popular Zach Galifianakis web show “Between Two Ferns” – even though it’s a blatant advertisement for Obamacare.

Galifianakis’ show makes fun of low-budget public access TV-style shows. Galifianakis asks his guests – in the past have included Steve Carell, Bruce Willis, Bradley Cooper, and Natalie Portman – outrageous questions, and the guests respond in turn.

The Obama appearance on “Between Two Ferns” begins hilariously, with Obama wondering if Galifianakis is sad that he pardons one turkey each year because “that’s one less turkey for you to eat.” But, the second half of the video is a straight-up pitch by Obama for Obamacare.

“I have no problem with this,” KTTH host David Boze commented on Tuesday. “It depends on the spirit of the joke. It’s funny the left is so sensitive about any and all things, but  instantly it drops if it’s their side doing it.”

The last few jokes in the video fall flat, especially the very end. Watch the whole video here.
