Fox News host and extremely funny person Howard Kurtz isn’t too keen on Obama’s recent appearance on “Between Two Ferns.” But unlike some of his Fox News peers, his issue isn’t that Obama has “demeaned the office of the Presidency.”
No. Instead, Kurtz just doesn’t think the video was funny:
But there is a problem when the president does the web show “Funny or Die” with Zach Galifianakis. He wasn’t funny. He died. Which senior administration officials thought this was a good idea? What’s next, driving around with Jerry Seinfeld in “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee”?
1) You are perhaps the only person -certainly the only media critic -who thinks this video is not funny.
2) It was Valerie Jarrett who thought this was a good idea, and she’s telling everyone.
3) Obama is not a comedian, but yes, going on Jerry Seinfeld’s web show would actually be a great idea too. It is also funny and beloved of the kids.
