Stephen Colbert on and Fox News’ Rage Over Obama’s Funny Interview

Posted on Mar 13, 2014

The “Colbert Report” pundit will not fall for Barack Obama’s trap and plug the Affordable Care Act on his show. Neither will Fox News commentators who are all outraged by the president’s appearance on the Funny or Die show “Between Two Ferns.” Though the video went viral and increased visits to the Obamacare website by 40 percent in just one day, right-wing media believe it was a foolish attempt that undermined the dignity of the office, and most important, in the words of Bill O’Reilly, “Abraham Lincoln wouldn’t have done it.”

Watch as Stephen Colbert mocks Fox hysteria yet again (it’s such an easy target), and vows to never say again.
