President Barack Obama took his ObamaCare agenda to the Ellen Degeneres Show yesterday. Appearing via satellite from his man cave in the White House, Obama promoted his signature healthcare reform law to Ellen’s 5 million viewers.
Ellen did her part to urge her female viewers to sign up, saying “we’re all grateful for Obamacare.”
A known narcissist, Obama couldn’t conceal his bitterness toward Ellen for breaking his Twitter retweet record with her own star-studded Oscar Awards selfie.
“I heard about that. I thought it was a pretty cheap stunt myself — getting a lot of celebrities in the background, you feeding them pizza,” Obama groused when DeGeneres reminded him she had shattered his record for the most re-tweets.
Obama also discussed his recent shopping excursion to the GAP on 42nd Street in New York.
Obama said the sweaters he bought for his daughters were “pretty nice” – but he said the girls haven’t worn them yet.
“Malia and Sasha, they did not scowl when I brought them in, which was a good sign. They didn’t immediately say, ‘Ew that’s terrible,’” Obama said. “I have not yet seen them wear them but I’m hoping that I make the cut.”
The president is home alone while first lady Michelle Obama traveled to China with their daughters, Malia and Sasha. The China trip is one of numerous separate vacations the estranged couple has taken recently.
“The house is abandoned. I’m stuck with two dogs, and I am expected to walk them and do what you do when you walk dogs,” the president said, to virtual silence from the audience.
