Barack Obama Teams Up With Zach Galifianakis For Hilarious Between Two Ferns

Mar 11, 2014 10:50 AM

President Barack Obama is trying to get the young people to vote … err we mean sign up for health care -- and he's doing it in a funny way!

The 44th president sat down amid shrubbery and next to Zach Galifianakis in the hit Funny or Die series Between Two Ferns.

Besides plugging his Affordable Care Act, Obama spars with the king of awkward during the six and a half minute video … and it's pretty damn awesome!

When Galifianakis asks the Commander in Chief, “What’s it like to be the last black president,” Obama responds dead pan with, “Seriously? What’s it like for this to be that last time you ever talk to a president?”

We love how Obama sticks it to The Hangover actor! Watch, laugh and learn about health care!

David Letterman Calls Donald Trump Racist, Considers Banning Him From Late Show

Apr 29, 2011 02:30 PM

David Letterman is adding his name to the long list of celebs who are putting Donald Trump on blast for making disparaging claims about President Obama.

When Letterman found out Dr. Phil, his guest on last night's show, was friendly with Trump, Dave took the opportunity to speak out on what he called The Donald's increasingly racist remarks, including Trump's questioning of not only Obama's birthplace, but whether the President's admittance into Harvard Law School was on his own merit.

“It’s all fun, it’s all a circus, it’s all a rodeo, until it starts to smack of racism. And then it’s no longer fun,” Letterman said to Dr. Phil. “So you thought it was racism?” Dr. Phil asked. “Well, yes,” Dave responded. “Do you consider him to be a racist?”

“I do not,” Dr. Phil said, explaining, “...I don’t think he always thinks everything through. I think sometimes he’s a little from the hip, and I don’t think he has a racist bone in this body.”

Letterman went on to say, “If he comes back on this show, and I am not sure we want him back on this show under these circumstances, he ought to be prepared to apologize just for that kind of behavior.”

Letterman isn't the only icon Trump is turning off. Another celeb recently called him a "pompous @sshole"! See who it was ... after the jump.
