Well it’s 2014, and snarky internet humor is just about all we have left. Prez Obama actually went on Zach Galifinakis’ mock talk show Between Two Ferns to pitch Healthcare.gov.
“How will it feel when you are not president anymore and everyone won’t let you beat them at basketball?”
“How does it feel to have a 3″ vertical?”
“That’s a 3″ horizontal”. Haha
I thought it was pretty funny, if not a bit demeaning to the president, to play the straight man to Zach’s feigned idiocy. This is 2nd term stuff, not really worrying about elections anymore. Obama’s people saw this as another avenue to advertise the healthcare signup website, and I think it works on that front. Lots of people love comedy and ignore the news.
And besides it is funny, and that’s what it’s there for.
