Barack Obama’s Between Two Ferns Interview Has FOX News Hoppin’ Mad! Watch Bill O’Reilly Go Off On The President!

| Filed under: TV NewsPolitikBarack ObamaBill O'ReillyZach Galifianakis

There aren't a whole lotta laughs happening on FOX News. So it’s no surprise they can’t take a joke and didn’t find President Barack Obama’s interview with Zach Galifianakis on Between Two Ferns at all funny!

K, well, whatever guys. It was hilarious!

Papa Bear Bill O’Reilly was growling on his show last night about how inappropriate it was for the Prez to use a comedy routine to promote HealthCare.gov.

Bill sounded off, saying:

"I’m all for PR and if [presidential spokesman Jay] Carney wanted to go on Funny or Die, fine. But the President of the United States? All I can tell is you Abe Lincoln would not have done it. There comes a point when serious times call for serious action.”

Three years ago, Bill wrote Killing Lincoln, his book about the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.

But, um, that doesn’t mean you can speak for Abe about whether or not he would do an interview!

And as far as PR is concerned, the President’s appearance on Between Two Ferns worked!

Early reports are that the Affordable Health Care site saw 40% more visits after Obama’s video aired!

We’d say that’s clearly a success!

Watch Mr. O’Reilly’s angry response (above)!

    It was ridiculous for the President to be on there. Doesn't he have better things to do like running the country? Not that I mind him taking a break because he's the worst President in the history of this country, but honestly, how disgraceful. Obamacare is a failure and your Presidency is a failure and a joke. Thanks for leaving the country worse than when you found it. Can't wait until 2016!

    How can anyone still say that Obamacare is a hit?
    And O'Reilly is right, using comedy to promote something that makes people suffer is not good.

    I do not understand Obama going on all kinds of stupid shows like Funny or Die or SNL or The View. I don't see those shows as things a president should be going on. It is like a slap in the face to the importance of the job of president. Obamacare a success??/ Ha! I tried to sign my BF up for it. It was supposed to help those with lower incomes who can't afford the high cost of healthcare - right? Well, my BF makes $25k a year. It said there was NOTHING available for him and to try medicare. Of course that also said he did not qualify. So where exactly IS he supposed to get health insurance - or be fined???!!!!! It is a total joke. Yeah, maybe that IS why it belonged on a comedy routine!

    How long do you think it took to film that little piece. Is it possible Zach came to the white house. Republicans have lost their damn minds. So scared the Affordable Health Care Plan will be a success. Can't stand for any program of his to work especially after they fought so hard to sabotage it and Bill can go to hell.

    Why don't Bill O'Reilly help Miley Cyrus or can he not handle her.

    Site hits don't equal enrollments so they mean nothing. My healthcare got cancelled because of this liar and I now have to pay 1.5 times more for 1/3 of the coverage I was getting before. What a B.S. lie the whole thing is.

    People realize that President Obama may support and promote the Affordable Care Act, but that he didn't write the current statutes of the bill…right.

    Anyways, I saw this on at the gym the other day and started cracking up, oh Bill O'Reilly, you sensationalist bastard! Abe Lincoln wouldn't have done it?…Well shit, Abe Lincoln was much more accessible to the general public than any President is now for one and secondly, since when is humanizing yourself a sign of weakness.

    Absolutely ridiculous and preying on the sheeple who clearly just hate that there's a black president.

    Re: John
    Anyone who watch the video would see he WAS AT THE WHITE HOUSE. At the end the curtain falls…

    People come on. An the fact that O'Reilly had the balls to say "Lincoln wouldn't have done it…" BULL! You have no idea what Lincoln would have done. It's just ridiculous.

    And pretending that going on a comedy show makes Obama weak is ridiculous. This has nothing to do with Crimea. And even if it did, if I were Putin should still be dumpin bricks wondering if he'll send in another seal team to off me like he did Bin Laden.

    Putin doesn't care about us when invading Crimea just like we don't care about them when invading Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, etc.

    I am glad discussion is branching out to all forums including those like this one. There has always been loyal subjects of all presidents, kings, dictators, etc regardless of their convictions or how history writes of them now. With the ever increasing optics placed on the administration even Americans youth will form their own opinions. History has recorded all reighns of power ending. Some longer some shorter. I am still amazed that our forefathers had the fortitude and the insight that still surpasses all since. One Nation Under God Shall Survive. Where have I read that? Where do you think we are headed.

    Perhaps the States of the United States of America shall refer to the tenth amendment as included in the Consitution. Mr. Thomas Jefferson one of those above referenced founding forefathers also wrote of State Nullification. I believe several states have already passed state laws effectively nullify the affordable care act. In response to the above, I read, "One Nation Under God Shall Stand".

    Just curious if the complainers on here: A) Got help choosing a plan with the help of an advisor, or if they tried navigating through the site/options on their own? B) Are aware of govt rebates to help cover expenses? C)Live in a state that is blocking Medicaid expansion (and thereby getting screwed by their Republican led state govt)?

    As the GOP spin-machine has proven time and again (as they get debunked one by one), most people are just too stupid to either believe they can save money (Julie Boonstra is a prime example), are confused on what they are paying now vs what they can be paying , or just plain believe everything they are fed by the conservative media. Until you call and ask for assistance negotiating the best deal, then your "opinion" is just that - and an uneducated one at that.
