Zach Galifianakis thinks Obama wins at b-ball only because he's President

We all know that Obama has an affiliation with basketball that goes beyond that of a normal President.

It seems that these days we see interviews of him courtside more than we see him in the White House.

The leader of the United States of America is one for making himself popular to the new age of voters.

Social media has been a tool that Obama has embraced in the past and now it seems crazy TV shows have become the new thing to do.

Zach Galifianakis was the host for the President's appearance on the insane show Funny or Die.

Standard practice in this situation is to bring up Obama's love of sport.

The Hangover movie star jokingly poked fun at Obama in various ways during the ridiculous interview. See below for the transcript that CBS Sports brought to our attention.

Galifianakis: "You said if you had a son you would not let him play football. What makes you think he would want to play football? What if he was nerd like you?"

Obama: "Do you think a woman like Michelle would marry a nerd? Why don't you ask her if she thinks I'm a nerd."

Galifianakis: "Could I?"

Obama: "No. I'm not going to let her near you."

The NCAA Tournament is just weeks away, so naturally there was a question about basketball.

Galifianakis: "Is it going to be hard in two years when you're no longer president and people stop letting you win at basketball?"

Obama: "How does it feel having a three-inch vertical?"

Galifianakis: "It's a three-inch horizontal. So..."
