The 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama, was a guest of The View on Thursday, July 29, 2010.

When asked why he chose to appear on this particular show, he quipped: “Look, I was trying to find a show that Michelle actually watched, and so I thought this is it, right here. All those new shows, she’s like, eh, let me get the clicker.”

In a comedic ‘lightning round’ of questions, Obama knew that Lindsay Lohan was in jail, but admitted he didn’t know who Snooki is…gasp! He faltered, clearly out of the loop, on whether Mel Gibson needs anger management and acknowledged that he wasn’t invited to the Chelsea ClintonWedding of the Decade‘.

Obama taped the sit down segment at the ABC Manhattan studio of The View on Wednesday. Barbara Walters made a special appearance for the exclusive interview. She has been recovering from heart valve replacement surgery and had not planned to return until September.
