Networks Swoon Over President's Fake Interview to Push ObamaCare
Newsbusters.org ^ | March 11, 2014 | Kyle Drennan

Posted on 03/11/2014 6:37:28 PM PDT by Kaslin

On Tuesday, all three network morning shows dutifully touted a fake interview President Obama conducted with comedian Zach Galifianakis designed to help the commander-in-chief hock ObamaCare to young people. On NBC's Today, social media co-host Carson Daly gushed: "It's over six minutes long...all of it is really, really funny....You know, the First Lady's been everywhere showing her comedy chops and it's been great. But boy, the President, he is amazing in this. So check that out this morning if you have time." [Listen to the audio or watch the video after the jump]

Later in the show's 9 a.m. ET hour, weatherman Al Roker praised Obama's comedic genius: "It's about the delivery and the President shows he's got the comedy chops." Co-host Tamron Hall declared: "Yes, yes. Which he shows at the White House Correspondents' Dinner every year." Co-host Willie Geist explained: "It was part of a – this concerted effort to promote the Affordable Care Act. Because they get into that and the President's allowed to explain it."

Did they watch the same video others watched?

They’d have been pimping “Triumph of the Will” if they were presstitutes in the 1930’s.

I watched the video and the words, “total disaster” and “unfunny”, come immediately to mind.

Was this the same interview where he said, “What’s it like for this to be the last time you ever talk to a president?”

“Did they watch the same video others watched?”

Chris made the Pres look very, very foolish. He asked about the birth certificate, and would his presidential library be in Kenya, and would he like to win another election, and how does it feel to be the last black president, and then let’s get this plug for the affordable care act over. When Chris showed him the spider bite, the president didn’t say go to the emergency room, he said that’s ugly, sign up for the ACA. The Pres came across as being a moron. Surprise, surprise. IMO

This is exactly like all of those reports from North Korea about their version of Dear Leader getting 6 holes-in-one the first time he played golf. Creepy and very scary.

This was an absolute embarrassment. Is it any wonder why the rest of the world considers Obama to be a lightweight?

“Carson Daly gushed”

He has become a super shill. Gets extra money, no doubt. He does not seem to mind anything they make him do.

I’ve come to the conclusion that I don’t get the humour that was displayed.

I thought Obama was ticked, and the whole thing seemed almost as lame as the Richard Simmons freak show.

I am however, hearing the likes of Brit Hume and others say that it was funny. I must not be in tune with what young people consider funny these days. It was pathetic. Scary, when you consider he’s the leader of the free world.

This is how far presidential prestige has fallen. Russians are walking all over Ukraine and this Kenyan clown goes on vacation and returns to go on a comedy show.

This Kenyan monkey turd wants the respect of the World and Putin has called him for what he is... a sissified, homo, monkey turd.

It looked like he wanted to cry when the other guy cracked a joke about him. I saw a thin skinned little man who doesn't know how to take criticism, even when it's done as a joke.

I can’t listen to the clown in chief’s voice but I read the transcript. This interview has been the hardest one he’s ever had.

If this interview had happened in 2008 this Marxist scumbag would still be in Illinois fighting to murder children.

He saw the whole script before the show. All of obama’s reactions were fake.

I can’t believe how the morning people thought it was funny.

Obama and the fat guy were so wooden. Maybe that was supposed to be what was funny?

Looks like they tried to imitate Sgt. Friday and his parter in the old Dragnet show but failed miserably. Obama does not do deadpan well at all.

The video was so inspiring, it inspired Putin to go invade another country.

He's grabbing territory while Obama does shtick.

That is the most vile, unseemly thing I've ever seen an American President do. I can't believe the furor that arose when Nixon went on Laugh-In and simply said "Sock It To Me."

Remember when CEOs were actually great spokesmen for their organizations? Here's a famous one from 30 years ago...

This was a disaster.

Of course the media is going to declare it a success.

Could this POTUS be any worse?

Sure Obama and his regime including his ball and chain are a laugh a minute a real hoot and the joke is on all of us.

If I recall, Nixon wasn’t President yet when he went on Laugh In.

Definitely a freudian slip. We'll all be in hock after ObamaCare.
