Finally, someone has asked President Barack Obama some tough sports-related questions.

Like how he’ll adjust to life when he’s out of office, when people stop letting him win at basketball. And which country he was rooting for in the Winter Olympics. Zach Galifianakis puts the president on a moderately warm seat in “Between Two Ferns”  and gets to the bottom of these issues and more. Like whether Obama would let his son play football. “What if he was a nerd like you?” Naturally, the president gets all the good lines. “Do you think a woman like Michelle would marry a nerd?” he shoots back.

Also, Galifianakis asks about that whole “Ambassador Rodman” thing. And, yes, the president is plugging to the kids with this appearance.
