Barack Obama has shown his funny side during an internet-broadcast interview

Obama the comedian

Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis is an internet comedy series, in which host Zach Galifianakis conducts celebrity interviews. The show is deliberately awkward, antagonistic and low-budget, and celebrities are not, according to Galifianakis, told what will happen in advance, "They agree to come. There is no discussion beforehand...It just happens, no real prep, no organization whatsoever."

Galifianakis asks Obama about being “the last black president”, his birth certificate and Dennis Rodman’s trips to North Korea, and even manages to call President Obama a ‘nerd’.

    This whole thing was a waste of time -
    If this man has something to say he need to just say it.
    It is a shame that he is one of "them" the status quo, he never was going to make it at all if he was not part of the equation.
    A player in the - lets go fool the people & steal as much as we can while we are there game show.

    I don't care wether people like Obama or not, but I think the interviewer was rude and insulting, after all he was elected by the people of USA to represent them ,how dare he be spoken to like that. I think it disgusting. He did really really well to take it on the chin and answer back the best he could.
