The Presidential Daily Brief


  1. Obama Holds His Own Against Zach Galifianakis

    In order to promote his healthcare plan to young people the president decided to tap into youth culture by appearing on comedian Zach Galifianakis’ online satire Between Two Ferns. The mock celebrity interview show has Galifianakis grilling guests while sitting between two potted plants. Obama gamely took a beating but also showed he can do funny. The president got to share his healthcare message, and the comic got an episode likely to rival his Justin Bieber interview. Thankfully, for the state of the Republic, Obama came across much better than the preening pop star.
