I know that celebrities dipping their toes into politics is never ideal. I don’t care what George Clooney or Leonardo DiCaprio have to say about a Senate race and I certainly don’t care about which party they donated money to last election cycle. Everyone involved in politics who lives in Tinseltown usually has their own self-interests.
They’ll do a bit with a presidential nominee or sitting president because it’s beneficial to them. And it’s certainly beneficial for Zach Galifianakis to do this, but it’s just different with him. I think we can all agree that when Zach Galifianakis has Obama or, in this case, Hillary Clinton, on Between Two Ferns he’s doing it for a laugh. There isn’t an ulterior motive looming somewhere backstage.
The entirety of the interview is spent dogging Hillary. It’s just funny, and if Hil-dog had been doing this kind of shit all year she wouldn’t be in a close race with Trump right now. She tries to do too much sometimes and that’s when she gets into trouble. I’m getting very excited for Monday night’s debate. If there ever was a time to use the phrase “appointment television” it would be now to tell everyone to watch the upcoming debate. I’ve got a feeling it’s going to go off the rails quickly if Hillary lets Trump do what he wants..
