Here Is President Obama’s “Between Two Ferns” Interview With Zach Galifianakis

Tuesday morning, comedy website Funny or Die released an episode of Zach Galifianakis’ satirical interview show Between Two Ferns featuring Barack Obama.

The whole thing is pretty funny. To be clear, it isn’t going to set the world on fire or anything, but there are definitely some amusing bits. (“What is it like to be the last black president?” “Seriously?”) Funny or Die has a very good relationship with the Obama administration, which includes creating a recent batch of pro-Obamacare videos, and even pitching the president a sketch idea directly. Galifianakis is himself an Obama supporter.

from the big banner at the top of our pages asking for the donations that make Mother Jones' nonprofit journalism possible. But we still have upwards of $300,000 to raise by June 30, whether we get there is going to come down to the wire, and we can't afford to come up short.

If you value the reporting you get from Mother Jones and you can right now, please join your fellow readers who pitch in from time to time to keep our democracy-advancing, justice-seeking journalism charging hard (and to help us avoid a real budget crunch as June 30 approaches and our fiscal year ends).
