Video: Zach Galifianakis grills President Barack Obama about 'Ambassador Rodman'

Tuesday March 11th, 2014

Between Two Ferns President Barack Obama was interviewed by Zack Galifianakis on 'Between Two Ferns' (Funny Or Die screengrab)

In case you haven't turned on the Internet today, President Barack Obama starred in the latest episode of Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis, a hilarious web series over at Funny Or Die.

The almost seven-minute video is filled with laughs, but one of the most memorable zingers from Galifianakis involves basketball. More specifically, ex-NBA star Dennis Rodman's repeated trips to North Korea, which Rodman recently said he will no longer make.

Fast forward to the 55-second mark to see the exchange:

Galifianakis: "So how does this work? Do you send Ambassador Rodman to North Korea on your behalf? I'd read some where you'd be sending Hulk Hogan to Syria, or is that more of a job for Tonya Harding?"

Obama: "Zach, he's not our ambassador."

Galifianakis: "What should we do about North Ikea? Korea."

Obama: "Why don't we move on?"

I wish they hadn't.
