In case you missed it, earlier today President Barack Obama appeared on a hilarious installment of Between Two Ferns with host Zach Galifianakis to trade insults and promote Obamacare. It was a huge hit on the Internet this morning among members of the digital generation, so of course this did not sit well with Bill O’Reilly.
During tonight’s episode of The O’Reilly Factor, the conservative pundit lambasted President Obama’s strategy of promoting Obamacare while using comedy as a vehicle to reach young people. Unfortunately O’Reilly didn’t stop there. He then went on to take a curious dig at the president by claiming that Abraham Lincoln would have never appeared on Between Two Ferns.
O’Reilly’s mic drop would have made a lot more sense if President Lincoln wasn’t, ya know, dead for more than 145 years. He would have been better off naming any of the potential Republican presidential nominees in 2016, but that would be too logical for O'Reilly.
