Turns out, Michelle Obama is not the only member of the First Family who can make us crack up.

Perhaps in response to his wife appearing on The Tonight Show, President Barack Obama is actually the guest on the latest edition of Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis.

In a hilarious back and forth with the actor, Obama mocks Galifianakis for The Hangover III; jokes about the host's weight; and then spends awhile plugging The Affordable Care Act.

This is the latest pop culture appearance by the President, who introduced Cosmos on Fox Sunday night and who recently slow-jammed with Jimmy Fallon.

Obama joins a Between Two Ferns guest list that includes Justin Bieber, Tobey Maguire, Jennifer Aniston and James Franco - and the segment is clearly very funny...

... but is appropriate for a sitting President to stop by a show that once also welcomed Tila Tequila?

You tell us: What do you think of Barack Obama being a guest on Between Two Ferns?

Nice try, President Obama.

But Jonathan Davis is on to you.

TMZ caught up with Korn singer Jonathan Davis today and asked him about his band's new music video (below). Why is it filled with clips of Miley Cyrus dancing and other pop culture events?

Because, Davis calmly explained, "our government uses [celebrities] to distract from what’s really going on."

Referring the Miley Cyrus VMA performance that dominated all headlines for days?

"When that went down, Barack Obama passed a law that made him basically a dictator," Davis says. "He can imprison whoever he wants.”

Watch the interview with Davis and the Korn video for "Spike in My Veins" now. Do you agree that Obama used celebrity scandals to exercise illegal political power?

Somewhere, even Ted Nugent is shaking his head over Davis' comments.

Calling for 2014 to be a "year of action," President Barack Obama's State of the Union address sounded promising, but acknowledged the inevitable:

Without cooperation with a divided, reluctant Congress, the kind of progress he envisions is not likely to be realized, despite his promises to go it alone.

"Sometimes we stumble; we make mistakes; we get frustrated or discouraged," Obama said, seemingly referring to his falling approval ratings of late.

But, President Obama added, "for more than 200 years, we have put those things aside and placed our collective shoulder to the wheel of progress."

The 2014 State of the Union address was vintage Obama, blending calls for a unified approach with declarations of his independence via executive orders.

Even Republicans relentlessly critical of Obama conceded his oratorical skill.

"A speech by Barack Obama is a lot like sex," said GOP strategist and CNN contributor Alex Castellanos. "The worst there ever was is still excellent."

Loretta Fuddy, the director of Hawaii's Department of Health who verified President Obama's birth certificate, died in a small plane crash this week.

A commercial plane carrying Fuddy went down off the coast of the Hawaiian island Molokai Wednesday. The respected state health official was 65.

Fuddy is best known nationally as the Hawaii official who verified and approved the public release of Barack Obama's birth certificate in 2011.

Fuddy said the documents "prove the fact that he was born in Hawaii." Naturally, birthers weren't about to let her tragic death pass without mockery.

Early reports indicate that the plane she was in suffered catastrophic engine failure, and that the other eight passengers on board were rescued.

Naturally, many Tweets, comments, and web posts from the "movement" quickly insinuated that Fuddy's death in the Cessna crash was no accident.

Some implied that the White House was "tying up loose ends," or that those with ties to Obama's past tend to have a "shortened life span."

And, of course, the King of the Birthers, Donald Trump, weighed in:

Funeral selfies are all the rage these days. Even world leaders are getting in on the new craze, as we saw this week at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service.

Yes, President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron and Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt snapped one, as seen below.

Michelle Obama? Not impressed.

Obama Selfie at Mandela Funeral

The photo shows the three smiling for a smartphone as the First Lady of the U.S. stares into the distance, likely not approving of funeral selfies.

A series of hilarious follow-up photos show Obama laughing along with Thorning-Schmidt and touching her arm before turning inexplicably somber.

After all, Nelson Mandela died Friday and now "belongs to the ages," as Obama himself says. Does a man of such gravitas deserve more respect?

Emily Post, the renowned etiquette expert, says it's never okay to take selfies at funerals. Do you agree? Or are we making too much of a lighter moment?

Funeral selfies: Bad taste or good fun?

President Barack Obama was heckled by a protester during his speech on Monday in San Francisco, and he tried to use the incident as a teachable moment.

An immigration reform activist began shouting for Obama to use executive orders to halt the deportation of America's undocumented immigrants.

"You have the power to stop deportations!" yelled the heckler.

Instead of allowing the Secret Service eject the activist, the Commander-in-Chief flipped the script instead and made a point about the limits of authority.

"Actually, I don't and that's why we're here," Obama replied.

Obama motioned for the Secret Service to let him stay, praising "the passion of these young people [who] feel deeply about the concerns of their families."

Then he tried to explain the position he's in as President.

Paxil: Second Term Strength.

With the health care woes seemingly worsening by the day, more than a few people might sign up for this drug ... provided it has a website that works.

Here's Jay Pharoah in the SNL spoof of an anti-depressant for Obama:

President Barack Obama stopped to help a pregnant woman on the verge of fainting during a speech he gave on health care in Washington, D.C., today.

Nearly 30 minutes into his speech, under the hot sun, a pregnant female supporter standing behind the Commander-in-Chief began to feel lightheaded.

Fortunately for the mom-to-be, Obama became aware of what was going on over his shoulder and turned around to lend Karmel Allison some support.

NOTE: This type of assistance is not covered under the Affordable Care Act.

"I gotcha, you're OK," Obama said as he put his arm out to steady her, and went on to joke, "No, no. You're OK. This happens when I talk too long."

Quickly afterward, a White House aide came to escort Allison off the stage as the President continued his speech, which came to end shortly thereafter.

Texas Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst wants to impeach President Barack Obama over the tragedy that saw four Americans killed in Benghazi, Libya, last year.

Dewhurst called for Obama to be impeached over his handling of the deadly 2012 attack on the U.S. Consulate, as well as the national health care law.

Dewhurst Obama

The comments were made during a recent Tarrant County Tea Party forum and were first reported on by Twitter by a reporter for the Texas Observer.

The account was later confirmed by the Texas Tribune, which said that Dewhurst, a former CIA officer, feels "very strongly about the tragedy in Benghazi."

"Congress should consider impeaching the president over the tragedy," Dewhurst said.

James Woods is not what you'd call a fan of President Barack Obama.

The 66-year-old actor expressed his opinions on Twitter this week in the wake of the federal government shutdown, placing the blame for it on Obama.

Woods, who is dating Kristen Bauguess, also criticized the president for various other problems in the U.S., including gun violence and race relations.

He responded to both those who agreed with him and those who did not, calling Obama an "abomination" and linking to articles about the shutdown.

Woods said the remarks might keep him from being able to find a job in Hollywood, but that he's resigned to that fate after he put "[his] country first."

Some of his most choice Tweets about the POTUS:
