Zach Galifianakis Explains Why We’ll Sadly Never See Trump On Between Two Ferns

As funny as it would be, this makes total sense

How great would it be to see Donald Trump appear on an episode of “Between Two Ferns?” Critics of the occasional web series say it’s become a little too gentle in recent interviews with high-profile politicians like Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. Still, it’s power cannot be denied – that episode alone has already been streamed more than 42 million times since first airing last week.


But a Trump episode would get Galifianakis do his thing uninterrupted. The variety of embarrassing, awkward and hilarious things he could ask and say to Trump would be one for the history books.

Sadly, that’s never going to happen.

“No. That doesn’t interest me. Doing it the other way doesn’t interest me,” Galifianakis told the Los Angeles Times. “He’s the kind of guy who likes attention — bad attention or good attention. So you’re dealing with a psychosis there that's a little weird. I wouldn’t have somebody on that’s so mentally challenged. I feel like I’d be taking advantage of him. And you can print that.”

Of course, it’s just as likely that his own well-established political leanings means Galifianakis doesn’t want to give free airtime to the Republican presidential nominee. And in the past, he’s shown a willingness to make a stand against those he disagrees with. For example, he reportedly helped lead a cast revolt against giving Mel Gibson a cameo in The Hangover 2.

If you can believe it, Galifianakis told the Los Angeles Times he still gets nervous about interviewing big-time politicians and celebrities. But he was impressed by Clinton’s ability to roll with the punches. In fact, he said she was so good natured, they had to cut out one instance of her laughing so they could maintain the façade of it being a confrontational, uncomfortable interview:

“I’m nervous in those situations because, you know, you don’t know them on a personal level. But I will say she’s very personable in real life. She really is,” he told the Times. “There was a laugh or two from her – a really big laugh – that we had to edit out because it wasn’t icy enough for us in a weird way for what we were doing.”

When the iPhone 11 debuted on September 10, it was met with less enthusiasm than the usual iPhone release. A lot of techies are holding off purchasing the latest gadget until Apple releases a phone with 5G technology.

We often dismiss our dreams as nonsensical dispatches from the mind while we're deep asleep. But recent research proves that our dreams can definitely affect our waking lives.

People often dream about their significant others and studies show it actually affects how we behave towads them the next day.

"A lot of people don't pay attention to their dreams and are unaware of the impact they have on their state of mind," said Dylan Selterman, psychology lecturer at the University of Maryland, says according to The Huffington Post. "Now we have evidence that there is this association."

It's fun to go to a party, talk to strangers, and try to guess where they're from just by their accents and use of language. It's called 'soda' on the East Coast and 'pop' in the Midwest, right? Well, it looks like a new study has been able to determine where a Humpback whale has been and who he's been hanging out with during his awesome travels just from his song.
