Bradley Cooper Saves Obamacare

The 86th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals C

Who has seen the episode of Zach Galifianakis’ Funny or Die series, ‘Between Two Ferns’ – where he interviews Obama?  It’s pretty funny.  Everything Galifianakis does is hilarious in my own personal opinion.  If you haven’t seen it- you have probably at least heard the fallout with Fox News – which failed to see the point or the humor in any of it.  Of course.

Anyway- apparently the whole thing came to fruition, partly due to Bradley Cooper’s involvement.  The Huffington Post reports:

 Cooper and Valerie Jarrett, Obama’s senior advisor, met on Feb. 11 to “brainstorm ideas about how to help get the word out on Obamacare.” While Funny or Die had come up before — perhaps as early as July of 2013 — it was Cooper who apparently sparked a renewed push for “Between Two Ferns,” and he went so far as to call Galifianakis from the White House.

The report continues:

Funny enough, Obama went out of his way to praise Cooper during his appearance on “Between Two Ferns,” a bit of in-sketch ribbing that got under Galifianakis’ skin.

“Being like that in Hollywood, that’s easy!” Galifianakis told Obama after the president complimented Cooper’s looks and talent. “Tall and handsome, that’s easy! Be short, fat and smell like Doritos and try to make it in Hollywood.”

As U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius said in an interview with HuffPost Live on Monday, Galifianakis’ “Between Two Ferns” episode provided the administration with a “bump” following its debut. “The website traffic surged once the ‘Between Two Ferns’ interview went on,” Sebelius said. “But more importantly, what we’re trying to do is reach people in the language that they most understand. Certainly Zach reaches a certain audience.”

Lady GaGa Beats Obama On Facebook

Lady GaGa has broke a facebook record by being the first living person to have over 10 million followers! She is the only living person on the social network to reach such a high number.

President Obama was close in the running for the highest number of followers, but Lady Gaga won this particular race!

A video of the performer on her Facebook page features her thanking her “little monsters” for “all of your love and all of your support and for sticking by me through the fame and the fame monster.”

“Become my friend on Facebook,” GaGa says on the video after blowing a kiss. “I’ll never forget you.”

Looks like her fans responded to her video.

There are pages with more followers on facebook, but none of them are living. They include Michael Jackson, Texas Hold ’em Poke, the Family Guy TV show, the game Mafia Wars and the Facebook site itself.
