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.

Turns out, Michelle Obama is not the only member of the First Family who can make us crack up.

Perhaps in response to his wife appearing on The Tonight Show, President Barack Obama is actually the guest on the latest edition of Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis.

In a hilarious back and forth with the actor, Obama mocks Galifianakis for The Hangover III; jokes about the host's weight; and then spends awhile plugging The Affordable Care Act.

This is the latest pop culture appearance by the President, who introduced Cosmos on Fox Sunday night and who recently slow-jammed with Jimmy Fallon.

Obama joins a Between Two Ferns guest list that includes Justin Bieber, Tobey Maguire, Jennifer Aniston and James Franco - and the segment is clearly very funny...

... but is appropriate for a sitting President to stop by a show that once also welcomed Tila Tequila?

You tell us: What do you think of Barack Obama being a guest on Between Two Ferns?

President Obama established this week, when he misspelled the name of Aretha Franklin's hit song R-E-S-P-E-C-T, that A-B-C is not as easy as 1-2-3 after all.

At the Women of Soul concert series, which is being hosted at the White House, the P-O-T-U-S spoke of the impact of artists on the fight for equality.

However, when Obama went to quote Aretha Franklin’s famous song "Respect," during which she spells out the word so memorably, he left out one letter.

Watch the Commander-in-Chief's bungled speech below ...

“When Aretha [Franklin] first told us what R-S-P-E-C-T meant to her, she had no idea it would become a rallying cry for African Americans," said Obama.

"And women ... and then everyone who felt marginalized because of what they looked like or who they loved. They wanted some respect,” he went on.

A good message by the Prez. Clearly, he meant no disrspect.

Somewhere, John Travolta and Adele Dazeem are smiling.

Nice try, President Obama.

But Jonathan Davis is on to you.

TMZ caught up with Korn singer Jonathan Davis today and asked him about his band's new music video (below). Why is it filled with clips of Miley Cyrus dancing and other pop culture events?

Because, Davis calmly explained, "our government uses [celebrities] to distract from what’s really going on."

Referring the Miley Cyrus VMA performance that dominated all headlines for days?

"When that went down, Barack Obama passed a law that made him basically a dictator," Davis says. "He can imprison whoever he wants.”

Watch the interview with Davis and the Korn video for "Spike in My Veins" now. Do you agree that Obama used celebrity scandals to exercise illegal political power?

Somewhere, even Ted Nugent is shaking his head over Davis' comments.

An alleged affair between President Barack Obama and Beyonce has been reported by a French newspaper, and has been immediately shot down.

Slamming the sensational claims, The Washington Post has no plans to publish a bombshell story about an alleged affair between the two friends.

The outlandish claim emerged in respected French newspaper Le Figaro.

Photographer Pascal Rostain (who is friends with former French First Lady Carla Bruni) promised: "It'll go out tomorrow [Tuesday, February 11] in the Washington Post."

"I can assure you that the world will talk about it."

They will, but not with any sort of seriousness.

Rostain added: "We should not forget Marilyn [Monroe] or Monica Lewinsky. You can be the president of the first world power ... that doesn't make you any less a man."

Calling for 2014 to be a "year of action," President Barack Obama's State of the Union address sounded promising, but acknowledged the inevitable:

Without cooperation with a divided, reluctant Congress, the kind of progress he envisions is not likely to be realized, despite his promises to go it alone.

"Sometimes we stumble; we make mistakes; we get frustrated or discouraged," Obama said, seemingly referring to his falling approval ratings of late.

But, President Obama added, "for more than 200 years, we have put those things aside and placed our collective shoulder to the wheel of progress."

The 2014 State of the Union address was vintage Obama, blending calls for a unified approach with declarations of his independence via executive orders.

Even Republicans relentlessly critical of Obama conceded his oratorical skill.

"A speech by Barack Obama is a lot like sex," said GOP strategist and CNN contributor Alex Castellanos. "The worst there ever was is still excellent."

Loretta Fuddy, the director of Hawaii's Department of Health who verified President Obama's birth certificate, died in a small plane crash this week.

A commercial plane carrying Fuddy went down off the coast of the Hawaiian island Molokai Wednesday. The respected state health official was 65.

Fuddy is best known nationally as the Hawaii official who verified and approved the public release of Barack Obama's birth certificate in 2011.

Fuddy said the documents "prove the fact that he was born in Hawaii." Naturally, birthers weren't about to let her tragic death pass without mockery.

Early reports indicate that the plane she was in suffered catastrophic engine failure, and that the other eight passengers on board were rescued.

Naturally, many Tweets, comments, and web posts from the "movement" quickly insinuated that Fuddy's death in the Cessna crash was no accident.

Some implied that the White House was "tying up loose ends," or that those with ties to Obama's past tend to have a "shortened life span."

And, of course, the King of the Birthers, Donald Trump, weighed in:

President Barack Obama is busting out his vocal stylings and musical skills in another viral video hit. This time it's "Jingle Bells," just in time for the holidays.

Of course, unlike Obama's Mandela funeral selfie, this isn't real. It's just a lip dub from YouTube channel Baracksdubs, makers of many previous classics.

Splicing together Obama's speeches to create the illusion that POTUS is singing the timeless Christmas classic, this definitely won't leave you out in the cold.

Unlike the weather, or the Obamacare website. BAM.

Other lip dub gems from the Commander-in-Chief...

The man can "sing." And roll out a terrible website.

Funeral selfies are all the rage these days. Even world leaders are getting in on the new craze, as we saw this week at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service.

Yes, President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron and Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt snapped one, as seen below.

Michelle Obama? Not impressed.

Obama Selfie at Mandela Funeral

The photo shows the three smiling for a smartphone as the First Lady of the U.S. stares into the distance, likely not approving of funeral selfies.

A series of hilarious follow-up photos show Obama laughing along with Thorning-Schmidt and touching her arm before turning inexplicably somber.

After all, Nelson Mandela died Friday and now "belongs to the ages," as Obama himself says. Does a man of such gravitas deserve more respect?

Emily Post, the renowned etiquette expert, says it's never okay to take selfies at funerals. Do you agree? Or are we making too much of a lighter moment?

Funeral selfies: Bad taste or good fun?
