'You know, the president is somebody who is just more youthful. He plays basketball. He's into sports'

MSNBC Contributor Touts Obama’s ‘Justin Bieber Numbers’ on Funny Or Die Video (NewsBusters)

On Saturday’s Weekends with Alex Witt on MSNBC, Lynn Sweet of the Chicago Sun-Times showed that she is one of the many liberal media members entranced by President Obama’s appearance on the Web series Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis. Witt asked about those who criticized the president for demeaning the office by going on the show, and Sweet let it be known that she didn’t agree with the critics.

The D.C. bureau chief for the president's hometown paper proclaimed:

Obama sacrificed maybe a smidgen, ephemeral bit of dignity for something far more important in his legacy, which is getting young people to sign up for the Affordable Care Act, to sign up for this health insurance.

If that line didn’t make it clear that Sweet is in the president’s corner, she then directly challenged Mr. Obama’s critics. “So I think the critics -- if that's the best they have, you know, bring it on,” she taunted.
