[VIDEO] Obama Grilled by Zach Galifianakis on Between Two Ferns

On Tuesday, President Barack Obama joined comedian Zach Galifianakis on his Funny or Die web-based interview program, Between Two Ferns. The interview immediately became contentious when Galifianakis launched into a series of critiques of Obama’s presidency to which the president was unable to respond… because they were asinine.

β€œWhen I heard that people actually watch this show, I was actually pretty surprised,” the president began.

β€œIn 2013, you pardoned a turkey,” Galifianakis noted. β€œWhat do you have planned for 2014?”

β€œWe’ll probably pardon another turkey,” Obama replied.

The interview became tense when Galifianakis probed Obama over what he appeared to believe was his decision to send a series of celebrity ambassadors to countries like β€œNorth Ikea.”

β€œWhat is it like to be the last black president?” Galifianakis pressed.

β€œWhat’s it like for this to be the last time you ever talk to a president?” Obama countered.

The two battled over why neither brought their birth certificates to the interview. β€œYou know what I would do if I were president?” Galifianakis asked. β€œI would make same-sex divorce illegal, and then see how bad they want it.”

β€œI think that’s why you’re not president,” Obama observed.
