This little nit. Wtf. David Spade started beef with the President by calling him “thirsty” for appearing on the reality show Running Wild with Bear Grylls.
“Why is Obama on Bear Grills trying to survive in the tundra?” he said in a recently deleted tweet. “Isnt the idea to keep the prez alive? And why is he on a reality show?Wtf ?”
“I thought a president should have a little more dignity,” he told TMZ when asked his comments
“What president does reality shows? It just sounds weird to me, you know what I mean? It’s just too much,” Spade said The Saturday Night Live alum, who most recently starred in Adam Sandler’s The Ridiculous 6 and Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser, also pointed out the numerous talk show appearances made by the First Lady. “I think that Michelle Obama’s on Ellen more than I am,” he said. “It’s just a new world. It seems a bit thirsty.”
Says Jezebel in Obama’s defense:
Maybe Obama is just trying to have a good time during his last year in office. Plus, it’s Bear Grylls; it’s not like he’s showing up on Real Housewives and bullying Yolanda Foster. Spade also slammed Obama’s GQ magazine covers. “Leave that to Bradley Cooper,” he said. “You’re the president, you’re above all of us. You’re above stars, you’re above everything. When he’s trying to get in the mix like, ‘I want to present at the MTV awards,’ Alright, guy. Relax. You’ve got it.” Damn.
Methinks perhaps it’s HIM who’s a bit thirsty. What do YOU think? Is it unbecoming of a sitting president to be seen on reality shows and magazine? Or is that just the world we live in now?
