President Obama and HealthCare.gov are in the running for an Emmy this awards season.

Obama’s satirical interview with comedian Zach Galifianakis on the web series “Between Two Ferns” was nominated Thursday for an Emmy Award in the Outstanding Short-Format Live-Action Entertainment category.

We have now officially entered a time where reality is sillier than anything Mark Twain or Will Rogers could come up with.

As an aside, I wonder what honor the boy-king will get next. Perhaps Putin will find an old Order of Lenin medal laying around, and award it to Obama. That would be nice.

What the heck — at least they can point to something he actually did.

The Nobel Prize came to him for NOTHING.

He’ll win of course, but will he show up to accept the Emmy?

What, and have to talk about himself — to a national audience?

Not to mention that there will be teleprompters there for him to read jokes somebody else wrote for him — about himself.

I am surprised he is not up for an Oscar with all the show boating he does.

Yes - this Obamacare mess and his yucking it up he absolutely deserves credit for. Credit - blame - whatever. Just wish I could laugh about it - but I can’t, our family’s health insurance is cancelled effective July 30 with the replacement ACA approved plan costing 60% more for far less coverage and doubling the deductibles. I hope a lot of people are feeling this pain ahead of November, and remember at the polls.

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

My guess is that the award will be accepted by a handicapped atheist communist transgender lesbian illegal alien.

So, yes, he will be there to accept it.

He also ought to win Most Valuable Player for baseball, football, basketball, and the World Cup. He has to beat the record of the various Glorious Leaders of North Korea.

I still can’t believe that idiot won that just for getting elected. You would think there would be some people involved in the Nobel peace prize who would say “Hey wait a minute, something ain’t right here” but no, they just go right ahead and trash whatever little credibility is left in that award to the point where it’s now like winning a prize from Crackerjack.

LET's see...

Nobel...check.

Emmy...in the works.

Now get the flop-eared clown measured for a World Series and Super Bowl ring and he'll think that there really was something worth a chit to come out of his present cy.

It should have been titled: “Zach Galifianakis between three ferns.”

This FOX story is 1 day old- Two days ago The Washington Post offered a CORRECTION: Earlier versions of this post indicated that President Obama was nominated for the Emmy award. Only the producers of the segment were nominated. Scott Aukerman, Zach Galifianakis, BJ Porter and Mike Farah) were nominated for the award. But if The President had been nominated and won the trophy on August 25, it would have been his third entertainment award. President Obama won Grammy Awards for best spoken word album for 2008′s “The Audacity of Hope” and 2006′s “Dreams from My Father.”

“Is there an Emmy for Best Lies?”

Did John Lovitz get one for his pathological liar on SNL?

Why not an Emmy? He was awarded a Grammy in 2006 and again in 2008. He deserves the Emmy more than he deserved either Grammy or the White House, which I’ll admit is not saying much.

No sillier than this.

Seriously, liberals seem to think awards, which are purchased, are impressive. The more the better the candidate. Liberal fall all over themselves for the reflected glory of having another liberal accept the award. (I wonder if the acceptance speech costs $200k.)
