Editor’s Note: Obama and Healthcare.gov are in the running for an Emmy. No, not for being the best liars in the world with that whole ‘you can keep your doctor if you want to’ line. Or the billion other lies he sold Americans. Obama was nominated for an Emmy because of his appearance on “Between Two Ferns” with Zach Galifianakis. If only this were a joke.
President Obama and HealthCare.gov are in the running for an Emmy this awards season.
Obama’s satirical interview with comedian Zach Galifianakis on the web series “Between Two Ferns” was nominated Thursday for an Emmy Award in the Outstanding Short-Format Live-Action Entertainment category.
The clip has been viewed online over 22 million times and is credited by some with boosting enrollment in the Affordable Care Act through the HealthCare.gov website.
In the Funny or Die bit, Obama and Galifianakis passive-aggressively trade insults, before Obama gets a chance to plug the health care site.
