David Spade is a Hollywood celebrity. He knows what it's like to run the celebrity media circuit. But he's not used to seeing his President and First Lady do the same--if not more.
Spade recently tweeted out (now taken down) a criticism of President Obama's appearance on the reality TV show, "Running Wild With Bear Grylls." "Why is Obama on Bear Grills trying to survive in the tundra? Isnt the idea to keep the prez alive? And why is he on a reality show?"
Fox News reports Spade followed up his comments with TMZ, saying, "A president should have a little more dignity. I realize Woodrow Wilson went on 'Dancing with the Stars' once. But what president is doing reality shows? It just seems weird to me."
Spade is similarly perplexed by the First Lady's many television appearances. "Michelle Obama's on 'Ellen' more than I am," he said. "It's just a new world, I'm not used to it." Fox reports the President will next be seen on Jerry Seinfeld's "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee" on December 30.
What do you think of the Obamas' many TV appearances? Do you think it's too much? Or do you think it makes sense for the President and First Lady to be such public figures? Let us know your thoughts in the Comments! Thank you!
