In  Episode 18, of the Funny or Die/Between Two Ferns clip, President Barack Obama sits down with Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover) in Zach's most memorable interview yet. The video was published March 11, 2014. During the interview, Galifianakis, known for his hilarious 'awkwardness', hits Obama up with questions about birth certificates, running for three terms, the Olympics, and being a nerd. Obama throws a few good punches, one notably about the third sequel to The Hangover.

Now, enter FOX News, and their outrage (sort of) - commentated by the The Young Turk's Cenk Uygur.

Here's the TYT clip:

The bottom line? If, in doing the show, President Obama's motive was to reach America's youth and get the word out about ACA, it worked - this time with the help of FOX. As of 7:30 pm EDT, that same evening, the Funny or Die video received over 6.5 million hits.

According to MarketWatch, on Tuesday, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid reported 4.24 million consumers have enrolled in the Affordable Care Act program and the proportion of critical young adults is increasing.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
