Conservatives led by Fox News host Bill O'Reilly are upset that President Obama made an appearance on the comedy show Between Two Ferns to plug healthcare.

Right-wing members of Congress were quick to criticize his appearance and made their thoughts known on Twitter. Rep. Randy Weber, R-Texas and Rep. Adrian Smith, R-Neb. both asserted the president should be concerned with other issues than satirical comedy.



Bill O'Reilly took to his show to criticize Obama for his flippant television appearance.

"If [Jay] Carney Funny or die -- fine. But the President of the United States?" said O'Reilly, "All I can tell you is Abe Lincoln would not have done it."
