|Zach Galifianakis shows President Barack Obama his spider bite.|
The most internet savvy president goes to a webcast for his last ditch effort to encourage young Americans to sign up for the Affordable Care Act. He appears on Between Two Ferns with comedian Zach Galifianakis, the breakout star of the hit movie The Hangover.
The president gets ribbed in good humor by the comedian over some of the most asinine kookspiracy-themed questions agitated by the racist right.
Some of the questions that Galifianakis asked were:
“What is it like to be the last black president?”
“Which country were you rooting for in the Winter Olympics?”
“Where are you planning on building your presidential library? In Hawaii or your home country of Kenya?”
It was a great interview. All in good fun for Mr. Obama. However in good fun, here comes the criticism.
The Obama Derangement Syndrome is in full effect by our friends in the racist right.
|He wasn't impressed by the president's interview with Zach Galifianakis.|
KING HIPPO: Obama was on a Web comedy show. The show is called Between Two Ferns, and what it is, it's an Internet talk show. It is hosted by a comedian by the name of Zach Galifianakis. It's a parody of talk shows and essentially what it does is it gets A-list guests in there and roasts them in the form of an interview. It strips away all the pomposity and it is these people being treated -- I don't know why do it, but they show up and they get mocked and laughed at and insulted, and Obama showed up at this thing. Obama was a guest.
Now, if you wonder why people are losing respect for the president -- and I think people are. I think what's happening here is actually devastating to the office, and it began with Bill Clinton. It began with Bill Clinton. There was an arrest and a restoration when George W. Bush was there, but the office of the presidency has taken a big hit dignity-wise. And with Obama constantly on TV and constantly campaigning and making jokes and yuk yuks about inconsequential things, but doing it to build a bond between himself and the lowest-common-denominator voters, the low-information voters, it's an unseemly, sad thing.
Loserville goes right into the mix with their criticism of the interview.
Then of course some of the country's most annoying agitators make noise about it.
Smart move or desperate act? Was it a good idea for @BarackObama to go on comedian Zach Galifianakis' comedy web show to push #Obamacare?

Yeah, presiding over America's decline is a knee-slapper. "Obama’s New Approach Takes a Humorous Turn" http://t.co/WuWuHqpMoU

News is doomed. Sharyl Attkisson resigns, and our press conferences are prank-interviews by a dumbass from the Hangover movies.

Honestly, this is a bunch of humorless nitwits. They really find it funny when their friends in the racist right pass around those "funny" emails depicting the president and First Lady Michelle Obama as monkeys.
Sure they love to photo blast the president to objects and stupid themes.
It's a damn shame that once again Obama Derangement Syndrome continues to infect those agitators in the junk food media. They can't go a day without saying something about the president.
Republicans and their allies in the racist right relish on negativity. If it wasn't for negativity, the Tea Party Movement wouldn't exist. I mean you the right to criticized the president. But somehow this criticism is different.
I mean with the first Black president, Republicans and their hateful allies are trying to use every dirty trick out of the book to win back Congress. They will try to ruin President Obama with their hateful agenda.
They don't care about the middle class, women, people of color and those who aren't like them.
Ahem, Blacks, Hispanics, the LGBT community, Muslims, and atheists exists.
And these groups are growing. I suggest that Republicans better know your generation. The young voters are likely the ones who could put them back in the minority.
