Obama: I don’t go to .com and .net sites

Obama discusses top level domain names in humor video.

As of this morning Barrack Obama’s appearance on Funny or Die’s Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis has been viewed a whopping 12 million times. Obama’s appearance on the show was designed to boost awareness of his healthcare act among younger people, and it may be working.

If you haven’t seen the video yet (embedded below), you may get a kick out of a brief mention of top level domain names. Here’s what transpired:

Galifianakis: So do you go to any websites that are dot coms or dot nets, or do you mainly just stick to dot govs?

Obama: No, actually we go to dot govs…have you heard of Healthcare.gov?

While Obama may just go to .gov domain names, many confused people have landed on Healthcare.com. I almost wonder if this segue to discussing Healthcare.gov was designed to emphasize that it wasn’t Healthcare.com.

      I wouldn’t be surprised if they register them or someone forwards them to their website. You also forgot .mil to.

    So you think Obama is telling the truth, when all his videos of him and the First Lady are posted on YouTube, are they going to YouTube.gov? How are they posting them? Some youtube.gov site???

    Everything that comes out of Obama’s mouth is either a outright lie, a distortion of the truth or propaganda, this ones falls into the propaganda category..

    Obama has as no credibility at home or abroad, Period.
