I have to admit, given all the broken promises, incompetence and slapstick implementation of every aspect of Obamacare, the comedy genre is a much better fit:

“I wouldn’t be here with you today if I didn’t have something to plug,” President Obama told comedian Zach Galifianakis, betwixt ferns.

We believe you on that one, Mr. President.

Obama appeared on Galifianakis’s popular Web series “Between Two Ferns,” on the website Funny or Die. In the show, Galifianakis plays a bumbling idiot of an interviewer who gets away with asking celebrities the uncomfortable question. Take his interview of Justin Bieber as the defining example of the style. He asked the teen pop star: “You’ve had three hairstyles. What’s next for your career?”

Obama got a similar critical treatment, along with some time to plug the health care exchanges to the show’s presumably young audience.

This video got about 19,000 clicks for HealthCare.gov. How many of those bought a plan? As if they’d ever tell us. Call it “The Hangover IV”:

In the video, Obama claimed most young Americans aren’t covered by health insurance, which is far from the truth, as Politifact noted:

null

He can lie in any genre — now that’s talent.
