Why You Have to See President Obama's Hilarious Between Two Ferns Interview with Zach Galifianakis

"When I heard that people actually watch this show I was pretty surprised."

How far will President Obama go to convince young people to get in on the Affordable Care Act?

The commander-in-chief sat through an episode of Zach Galifianakis' insult-driven mock talk show Between Two Ferns and traded barbs with the actor for a good three minutes before getting down to brass tacks. As it turns out, the president can throw shade just as well as he can wear denim on denim. Here's one of our favorite volleys:

Galifianakis: What's it like to be the last black president?

Obama: Seriously? What's it like for this to be the last time you talk to a president?

Galifianakis: It must kind of stink, though, that you can't run three times.

Obama: Actually I think it's a good idea. If I ran for a third time, it would sort of be like doing a third Hangover movie. Didn't really work out very well, did it?

Ouch. Watch the rest of the interview below (the two even manage to make the more straightforward part about Healthcare.gov hilarious) and stick around to see what happens when the president pushes the big red button at the end.
