Zach Galifianakis, actor, comedian and host of Between Two Ferns lands his biggest get yet: the President of the United States. On the viral Funny or Die interview series, Galifianakis insults his guests, revels in awkward silences and creates cringe-worthy moments. A host of A-list celebrities from Jennifer Aniston to Bradley Cooper to Justin Bieber have graced the low budget set of Between Two Ferns, which consists of two chairs, two ferns and a black curtain.

While President Obama tried to plug HealthCare.gov, Galifianakis stayed true to style asking the President which country he was rooting for during the Olympics, whether he wanted to run for a third term and about sending “Ambassador” Dennis Rodman to North Korea. Watch the full interview here.

Last year the comedian sat down with Brian Williams and talked about fame, family and, of course, the ferns.
