Fox's 'The Five' Lambaste Bradley Cooper And Zach Galifianakis For Promoting Obamacare

The kids at 'The Five' are just not happy about that 'Between Two Ferns' web video with President Obama and Zach Galifianakis which helped get people to sign up for Obamacare.

Predictably, the crew at The Five were none too pleased with the success of President Obama's appearance on Zach Galifianakis' web show, Between Two Ferns. It didn't help matters when it was reported that actor Bradley Cooper arranged it after a visit to the White House.

GREG GUTFELD: "They're tools, that's all they are," Gutfeld said of the two "Hangover" stars.

"Literally and figuratively, they are predictable tools selling a product they don't use, which is nothing new. Celebrities sell things that they don't use all the time, except this product happens to be coercive. They're actually selling a burden that they're immune from. Could you imagine if they supported the troops in this manner, our troops in conflict? I mean, if they supported troops the way they supported government programs, imagine that in Hollywood."

There was only one slight problem with that, as Tom Kludt at Talking Points Memo noted, both Cooper and Galifinakis have and continue to support the troops through USO tours abroad and entertaining at military bases here.

D'oh.
