Just one month after First Lady Michelle Obama’s appearance on the “Tonight Show,” President Obama engaged in his own version of lighthearted fun. Our Commander in Chief showed of his comedy skills in a mock online interview on the Funny Or Die website this week.
Along with driving traffic to HealthCare.gov, Obama joked with “Between Two Ferns” host Zach Galifianakis, who is known to ask wildly awkward questions during his celebrity interviews. And, the POTUS was no exception.
One of the funniest moments came when Galifianakis called Mr. Obama a nerd for not playing football.
“You said if you had a son, you would not let him play football. What makes you think that he would want to play football,” the Hangover star questioned. “What if he was a nerd, like you?”
“Do you think a woman like Michelle would marry a nerd,” the Pres. snapped back. “Why don’t you ask her whether she thinks I’m a nerd?”
“Could I?” Galifianakis asked.
“No. I’m not going to let her near you,” Obama replied.
Another good jab came after Zach asked, “What is it like to be the last black president?”
“Seriously,” Obama said with a WTF look on his face. “What’s it like for this to be the last time you ever talk to a president.”
Check out the other laugh-out-loud moments in the six-minute clip, below.

White House Style: Michelle O vs. Jackie O
1. Taking Care of Home And Still Fly!
Both First Lady Michelle Obama and First Lady Jacqueline Onassis Kennedy will undoubtedly go down in history as two of the most stylish women to grace the White House of all time! Whether they were standing by their man, taking care of their kids, or tending to their duties for the Nation, these women always did it in style. See how they kept The Capitol chic.
2. Statement Coats
Jackie O shut it down with her fly trench coats and belted outerwear (the over-sized shade and gloves always added a chic touch!) and Michelle also knows how to make a statement with her outerwear: case in point the Thom Browne coat and J. Crew accessories that made headlines after she wore them to POTUS' second swearing in ceremony in 2013.
3. Orange Crush
Michelle has an affinity for jewel tones and Jackie also knew how to rock a bold color. Orange in particular flattered them both!
4. Patterns and Pops of Color
Great minds think alike! Both first ladies accessorized their splashy green and blue print dresses with tiered necklaces and bright shoes.
5. Regal Style
When it came time to meet the Queen of England, Mrs. O chose a white Tom Ford dress in 2011, while Jackie O wore a ice blue Givenchy frock in 1961, but both tied their look together with lady-like gloves.
The fashion continued even on trips on Air Force one! Here Jackie showed off the style of the times in belted coat finished off with gloves and a hat (one of her go-to accessories) and Michelle had a modern-day yellow moment adding a black cardigan and belt to her wrap dress.
