With a little less than three weeks to go until open enrollment ends, Pres. Obama ramped up his efforts to get young people to sign up for health insurance with a comedy appearance designed to target millenials where they live: the Internet.
Pres. Obama joined Hangover comedian Zach Galifianakis on his parody talk show “Between Two Ferns.” Galifianakis’ popular web-only comedy show features wildly awkward interviews with celebrity guests, in which the host repeatedly insults and mocks his guests and the president was no exception. Obama proved willing to jab back, openly teasing Galifianakis once the barbs began. He even managed to slip in his plug for Obamacare, inspiring more mockery from his host.
Coming on the heels of First Lady Michelle Obama’s appearance on the Tonight Show last month, the first couple have proved they are more than willing to engage in a little lighthearted fun to help get their message across. But the big question is: who’s funnier? Watch both below clips and tell us what you think.
