Obama/Ellen Selfie Contest: Who Wore it Better?

Don’t miss it! BO taped an appearance with Ellen yesterday, that will run today. Talk about cool. Here’s the promo for the show:

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA will be talking to our host from the White House, and Ellen is ready to entertain her VIP guest with an inspiring conversation. Both Pres. Obama and our host have proven their dance moves, their desire for good, and their Twitter skills. Now the leader of the free world, and the champion of comedy will get into the President's new health care initiative. From L.A. to D.C., Ellen rolls out the red carpet for the United States' fearless and brilliant head of state!

Because, you know, there’s not much else going on around the world these days, and the most transparent president in the history of the Republic actually lives a pretty boring life.

'You know 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 grey suits talking about a whole bunch of stuff that wouldn’t make very good television.”

Agreed. Many people would say it doesn’t make for very good governing either. Ditto leadership.

Barry is actually appearing on Ellen’s show to hump promote Obamacare. Having failed to persuade the 20-30 somethings to buy insurance they don’t want and don’t think they need (apparently most of them are willing to pop for their own condoms), BO reached out to their moms instead, because the “kids” still talk to or text them on average 6.5 times a day even if they’re still living at home.

President Barack Obama has had years to promote his signature health care reform. Now, with a near daily barrage of bad news tied to ObamaCare, from skyrocketing premiums to bald-face lies about its true nature, the president is reduced to working the talk show circuit like a B-lister promoting a cable pilot.

I can only guess that this means BO has run his allotted timeslot for the “coolness” factor and the pack has moved on. Which explains why he felt compelled to defend his jeans coolness when he was on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show (talk about B-listers!) last week:

“I’ve been unfairly maligned about my jeans,” he said. “The truth is, generally I look very sharp in jeans. There was one episode like four years ago in which I was wearing some loose jeans mainly because I was out on the pitcher’s mound, and I didn’t want to feel confined while I was pitching, and I think I’ve paid my penance for that. I got whacked pretty good. Since that time, my jeans fit very well.”

Actually, there are a lot of people who think BO acts too big for his britches, butt I don’t think we want to get into a who-wore-the-pants-better contest at this juncture, do we?

Meanwhile, back on the Ellen show:

The leader of the free world then took the Oscars host to task for breaking his record number of Twitter retweets.

Ellen tried to apologize for stealing the accolade, which came after she posted an image of herself surrounded by celebrities while presenting the event.

But the Commander In Chief was having none of it, telling her: 'I heard about that. I thought it was a pretty cheap stunt myself. Getting a bunch of celebrities in the background.'

Yep, pretty cheap.

And again, do we really want to get into a who-does-selfies-better contest with anyone?

selfieNo, I didn’t think so.

In other news: Big Guy picks Michigan State to win it all in the Presidential brackets.

brackets2Sorry about the kiss of death, Michigan State.You deserve better.

And also, the weekly ratings were in on Big Guy’s Obamacare appearances last week, and they’re looking really good!

His oldest daughter was also impressed by his appearance on "Between Two Ferns," Obama said. "Malia was so excited! She had seen all the previous episodes, so I figured it was going to reach our target audience, which is a lot of young people, and it turns out we’ve had close to 15 million hits."

So, great! We’ve had 15 million “hits” from 15 year olds. When they turn 27 and get kicked off Mom and Dad’s policy, maybe they’ll sign up.

I’d love to give you an update on our China “official visit” butt as you know, our transparency rules do not allow me to. All I can say is “thank you taxpayers,” we’re having a great time so far and I’ll try to sneak you an unofficial image or two as we “make friends, see the sights, promote education, and charm anyone willing to listen” while carefully avoiding any discussion of human rights, international trade abuses, or eating your peas.



We’re here to charm and be charmed, after all.
