If Hillary Clinton was glad to get over her spell of pneumonia, then a heavy dose of Zach Galifianakis brought her crashing back down to reality once more. The New York Times reported that the Democratic presidential nominee gave a perfect deadpan performance next to the professional satirist. But struggled to keep a straight face when the Trump jokes were flying out.
The Between Two Ferns segment has become wildly popular on Funny or Die, with the 46-year old comedic actor lampooning celebrities to great lengths right in front of their faces. Previous guests include Ben Stiller, Steve Carell, Justin Bieber and Conan O'Brien. Even the current President of the United States, Barrack Obama, showed up while he was promoting the new healthcare system.
Galifianakis Jokes Cut To The Bone
Taking no prisoners with his barbs, Galifianakis was at his politically incorrect best. He presented a number of zingers that will have people on the left and right sides of the spectrum in stitches.
“What happens if you become pregnant? Are we going to be stuck with Tim Kaine for nine months?" He quipped. "Not to take away from the historic significance of perhaps you becoming the first female President, but for a younger, younger generation you will also become their first white President. And that is pretty neat too."
Clinton Getting Hollywood On Side Ahead of November
It isn't just The Hangover star being brought into the fold to help her push to the White House this year. Following on from a Save The Day campaign video starring a large portion of the Avengers. Featuring the likes of Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo and Don Cheadle - the short 3 minute plea urged those still undecided voters to join the Democratic nominee. All in hopes of defeating a Republican viewed by the Avengers as "racist" and "abusive."
The Sydney Morning Herald also reports that the cast from the 1990s hit political drama series The West Wing are on board for the 2016 election. And of course they are seeing eye to eye with their Marvel counterparts. The group are out and about on the trail hoping to convince the swing state of Ohio to go blue in November.
