President Obama Slams Ellen for "Cheap" Oscars Stunt, Might Get a Tattoo

by at .  Updated at . Comments

President Barack Obama made his first appearance on Ellen this week.

And the Commander-in-Chief wasted little time in chiding the host over her Oscars selfie, which broke the record for most re-Tweets this month... a record previously held by Barack Obama!

"I thought it was a pretty cheap stunt," the President joked of the famous photo. "Getting a bunch of celebrities in the background...you feeding them pizza."

Obama on Ellen

On November 6, 2012, within an hour of being re-elected, Obama posted a photo of himself with his wife and wrote, "Four more years."

It held the Twitter record until Ellen, Bradley Cooper and company shattered it on March 2.

Elsewhere, Obama said he enjoys House of Cards, but has never seen Scandal.

He's aware of the ABC hit, however, and does offer some perspective on it.

"I have to tell ya, life in Washington is a little more boring than displayed on the screen," he said. "The truth of the matter is, if you followed me, most of my day is sitting in a room listening to a bunch of folks in gray suits talking about a whole bunch of stuff that wouldn't make very good television.”

The President also quipped that the Situation Room could use more dancing and said he plans to get a tattoo in order to "reduce the cool factor" of such ink and discourage his daughters from marking up their bodies.

Pretty funny stuff all around. Watch various segments from the appearance here:
