Watch the Bizarre Obama Interview Fox News Aired Right Before the Super Bowl

Obamacare. Benghazi. The IRS scandal.

In a bizarre, tense, and one-sided partisan interview aired during the Super Bowl pre-game show, viewers watched as President Barack Obama defended himself against a barrage of conservative criticisms that were entirely unrelated to anything else in Fox's Super Bowl telecast.

The Obama grilling came as part of a special 10-minute Fox News interview, hosted by the not-so-fair-and-balanced conservative pundit Bill O'Reily.

"I want to get this on the record ..." O'Reily repeatedly said during the interview, jumping first on the failures of the healthcare.gov site (wasn't that a thing back in October?) then on Benghazi (is that even a thing?) then finally on the IRS/ Tea Party scandal (which most everyone has moved on from).

As Obama answered, O'Reilly interuppted the president 48 times.

Watch for yourself ... and someone get Obama a beer.
