Lunch links: North Carolina man interviews Obama

Zach Galifianakis

Zach Galifianakis

What makes this worth watching is that North Carolina man happens to be  Zach Galifianakis, the comedian who grew up in Wilkesboro and owns a farm in Alleghany County. (His uncle Nick Galifianakis of Durham also served in Congress from 1967 and 1973.)

Galifianakis, who also attended N.C. State University,  “interviewed” President Barack Obama for his “Between Two Ferns” series he does of a spoof cable-access talk show he does for Funnyordie comedy website.

Obama came on to plug Healthcare.gov and ends up dodging questions about his birth certificate and the NSA.
