With a December 15 deadline to sign up for Obamacare looming, President Barack Obama turned to the Hollywood star power of actor and comedian Bill Murray to sell his signature health care plan.

Any questions on why America was ready to make a change at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.?
Sorry Hillary, even if Russia hacked, here’s why you aren’t getting a ‘do-over’
The president realizes his legacy may rest on the fate of the Affordable Care Act and the more people who sign up, the more difficult it may prove to be for his successor, President-elect Donald Trump, to follow through on his promise to repeal the law.

Either way, given how much time over the last eight years Obama has spent on a golf course you would expect him to be able to putt better than this!
‘Total respect!’ Troops show their love for Trump at Army-Navy game; check out the video, photos
Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter, to include a warning to Murray to be aware that as a proven liar — “You can keep you doctor” — Obama “probably cheats” at golf too:
Hard to imagine how @realDonaldTrump could make the incumbents look to indulgent and aloof… https://t.co/LOgBwthR0q

Note to Bill Murray. Obama lies so he probably cheats at golf.
