If you’re reading this post, you’ve probably seen the “Between Two Ferns” interview with President Barack Obama that went viral on Tuesday. And if you have not, then you should because it’s one of the best things you’ll watch all day.
Internet users all over the world couldn’t help but laugh out loud at the sight of grouchy host Zach Galifianakis being grilled by Obama.
However, the right-wingers on Fox News including Eric Bolling and Bill O’Reilly couldn’t help but criticize the idea of the U.S. Commander-in-Chief mingling with comedians to promote his healthcare law Obamacare.
Maybe you’ll find Fox’s analysis even funnier than the actual interview. Have a look at some of the best chunks in the videos below:
The O’Reilly Factor:
“Using a comedic web site to enroll people is a little bit desperate, don’t you think?” Bill O’Reilly asked.
“All I can tell is you is Abe Lincoln would not have done it,” he said.
The show’s tagline was: “Presidential priorities: Obama chooses comedy over crises”
“So the world is on the verge of mayhem,” Eric Bolling began. “Vlad Putin flexing his military muscle. Kim Jong-un got 100% of the North Koreans. We lost 239 people in a airplane over Vietnam, vanished. And the what is the leader of the free world doing?”
Commentator Katie Pavlich tweeted the following:
Fox And Friends:
“Who recommended he do this?” Brian Kilmeade asked in disbelief.
“The deadline to sign up is three weeks away, should the president of the United States doing this?” He said “it’s so inappropriate” for “the president of the United States to be sitting down doing an interview that’s a mockup.”
Jenna Lee had the following opinion about the “snarky” interview:
“PRES OBAMA’S INTERVIEW IS NO JOKE”
