President Obama Jokes Healthcare Website Is Just Like 'Frozen' on 'Colbert'
President Obama knows just how to get young people excited about enrolling in his signature health care legislation: Compare it to Frozen. Everyone loves Frozen, right?
Obama stopped by a very special episode of The Colbert Report (which, ugh, ends its run this month) on Monday night, and before Stephen Colbert and the President went toe-to-toe in an interview, Obama crashed an earlier segment, taking over for Colbert's popular "The Word" and renaming it "The Decree."
"Remember the original healthcare.gov website?" Obama said, ostensibly reading from Colbert's script. "I think that's where Disney got the idea for Frozen." After noting most young people could get covered for less than $100 a month, he wondered, "But how is [Obama] going to get that message out to the kids?" while the phrase 'Tattoo it on Taylor Swift' appeared onscreen.
In terms of actual ideas about how to tell a bunch of young people how easy it is to get coverage? Surely he wouldn't go on a comedy program....
