The Country Music Awards took a high profile swipe at the failure that is Obamacare as hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley performed a scathing skit mocking the website’s complete and utter failure.
On Pat & Stu, the duo praised Underwood and Paisley for doing an amazing job as hosts and performers on the CMAs, especially compared to most award shows which are absolutely terrible.
During the show, Paisley pretended to hurt his back during one of their duets. Underwood suggested Paisley sign up for Obamacare.
“I started signing up last Thursday and I’m almost done,” Underwood told Pailsey. “Let’s go to the website and get you signed up.”
The two then walked over to the side of the stage where they pulled out a computer to begin the long, arduous process of getting Obamacare.
“Why’s it spinning?” Paisley asked after a second.
“Oh, it does that,” Underwood responded.
“Why’s it smokin’?” Paisley continued.
The two then broke into a parody of George Straight’s classic “Amarillo by Morning,” swapping out “Amarillo” for Obamacare: Obamacare by morning/ Why’s this taking so long?/I’m going to end up with hemorrhoids/If I sit here ’til dawn.
While most of the crowd was uproariously laughing to the act, some were not impressed.
“The camera focuses on Tim McGraw and Faith Hill – hardcore Democrats.Big Obama supporters,” Pat said.
