Michael R. Caputo, the assistant secretary for public affairs at the Department of Health and Human Services, and his colleagues envisioned a $265 million star-studded campaign to lift American spirits amid the pandemic. The campaign never came to fruition. But The New York Times reports that, based on documents released by House investigators, the Trump administration "sought to exclude celebrities who had supported gay rights or same-sex marriage or who had publicly disparaged President Trump. The actor Zach Galifianakis, for instance, was apparently passed over because he had declined to have Mr. Trump on his talk show Between Two Ferns. (Mr. Galifianakis did have President Barack Obama on the irreverent show.)" When The Times report was brought to the attention of Between Two Ferns co-creator Scott Aukerman, he tweeted in response: "LOLOLOLOL."
