David Spade Bashes Obama for ‘Doing Reality Shows’ (Video)

”A president should have a little more dignity,“ former ”SNL“ regular says

David Spade, whose acting credits include “Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser,” has called President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama undignified for their presence in popular culture.

The former “Saturday Night Live” player blasted Obama’s recent appearance on “Running Wild with Bear Grylls” via Twitter, as well as his recent Men of the Year cover of GQ magazine.

“I criticized Obama because I thought, ‘A president should have a little more dignity,'” the comedian told TMZ cameras in Los Angeles. “I realize that Woodrow Wilson went on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ once, but what president is doing reality shows?”

Obama has participated in a variety of unconventional press ops like those with Funny or Die and Buzzfeed, especially in support of his Affordable Care Act.

“It’s too much. Michelle Obama is on ‘Ellen’ more than I am… it’s just a new world. I’m not used to it. It seems a bit thirsty to me,” Spade added.

Michelle Obama often hits the talk show circuit and graces the newsstand in support of initiatives like “Let’s Move” and issues like education.

Spade theorized the First Couple is strategizing for life after the 2016 election.

“I think they’re going to do fine but they’re sort of plotting after the White House. He’s on GQ? Leave that to Bradley Cooper. You’re the president! You’re above all of us,” Spade said.
