Skip to comments.Obama in Strangely Humorless “Funny or Die” Video to Promote Healthcare
Posted on 03/11/2014 11:23:26 AM PDT by BenLurkin
Its not funny but its on Funny or Die. President Barack Obama appears in a Funny or Die video with Zack Galifiankis for the comedians Between Two Ferns satirical talk show. The pair strident, antagonistic trade barbs that dont work they come off as hostile and satirical. Then theres a pitch for Obamacare and its impending March 31st deadline. This is supposed to appeal to young people. But basically the two just insult each other. The whole comes off as less presidential than Richard Nixon saying Sock it to me on Laugh In.

I was there, TV side to see Nixon say “Sock it to me” and because he was such a straight man it was funny. It was wage and price controls that were not “presidential”.
I’m not watching it. My screen has been poisoned enough by this...person.
Saw a snippet on Fox news......not funny in the least.
What would you expect from a hangover star?
Why "strangely"? The strange thing would be if he actually were funny. Most of the things Obama has been in have been as funny as an impacted wisdom tooth.
“The pair strident, antagonistic trade barbs that dont work they come off as hostile and satirical.”
Well, the writer doesn’t seem familiar with the style of this show, because that is the norm. This one didn’t work very well though.
These loons have a twisted concept of humor. This is just sad.
Funny or Die is just another leftist hipster time sink.
He could have soiled himself, and they would scream how he is the most awesome president “evah”.
Bunch of sell-outs.
Next up; Obama and Michelle are guest stars on that Disney game show famous for testing adults with goofy, unanswerable questions. If you give a wrong answer, you may get dunked into water, or Green Slimed by a giant tipped over bucket above your head. Berry would do it.
This was not funny, this was snark. Mean. Typical Obama.
If you ever saw the Comedy roast of Donald Trump, this reminded of “the situation”. It had the same mean tone and was extremely un-funny. However, the Obama sycophants loved it.
I have to say it was funny. But it won’t be successful because what they’re trying to be funny about comes across as making fun of Obamacare. And what they’re trying to present as satire is actually true.
I’ll also say that Obama is a better actor when you KNOW he’s lying than when he’s reading a teleprompter and really doesn’t pay attention to what he’s saying.
Zack Galifiankis is truly a no talent ass clown....not funny at all.
“Strangely Humorless”?! It’d be beyond strange if it contained humor. 0 destroys things. He doesn’t make them fun.
Also, Nixon was not president at the time. He was a candidate still running for president in 1968.
How many other MSM reporters have asked Obama about the birth certificate and his Kenyan birth?
Impeach Hussein Soetoro-Obama in 2014, PERIOD.
Do you think the White House would allow a comedy sketch with Obama that called him out on the BC and Kenya?
agree he is our version of this movie from idiocracy
120 minutes of a butt farting
I guess It’s “Or Die” then....
Obama takes part in this kind of nonsense, and people wonder why other world leaders don’t take him seriously.
Haven’t read the thread yet so don’t know if anyone commented on this but just saw O’bozo’s “performance” again and was stunned to see the Smartest President EVAH, Harvard magna, genius wonderman have to read cue cards (or prompter?) during this bit...geeeeeez.
Add to him: Letterman, Conan, Meyers, Maher, Colbert, Stewart, all of SNL....
All the stuff the 18 - 25 yr olds supposedly think are a riot....
