Fox Host: Bradley Cooper And Zach Galifianakis Should Support The Troops, Not Obamacare

Fox News Channel’s wannabe comedian Greg Gutfeld really resents Bradley Cooper and Zach Galifianakis.

While most of the gang at “The Five” on Wednesday simply poked fun at President Obama for turning to the actors to help promote the Affordable Care Act, Gutfeld seemed genuinely upset about it all.

According to Politico, Cooper made the pitch to the White House to have Obama appear on “Between Two Ferns” with Galifianakis.

“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.”

Gutfeld actually doesn’t have to imagine that. Cooper has been a fixture on USO tours. Here are some photos of him visiting Walter Reed last year.

Not for nothing, here’s footage of Galifianakis and Will Ferrell entertaining troops at a military airbase in Texas. Galifianakis was also featured in “Comedy Warriors,” a documentary that followed five wounded veterans who developed their own stand-up routine with various comedians.
