Obama Confronts Ellen DeGeneres About Breaking His Retweet Record

Ellen DeGeneres nearly broke the Internet when she surpassed President Barack Obama's retweet record on Oscars night with her epic A-list selfie, and he's not happy about it. During his appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show (in an episode that will air today), he jokingly called it a "pretty cheap stunt" because she fed all the celebrities pizza and crowded them in the background. It turns out things aren't quite that exciting at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. When asked about how House of Cards and Scandal match up to the real action in the Oval Office, he admitted it's "a little more boring than displayed on the screen . . . most of my day is sitting in a room listening to a bunch of folks in gray suits talking about a whole bunch of stuff that wouldn’t make very good television." Ultimately, there's just "not much dancing in the situation room, as a general rule," but as Ellen pointed out, Michelle Obama's "Let's Move" campaign can definitely work to make people dance in there. Watch the video to see what else Obama had to say about tattoos, why he hasn't watched Scandal yet, and more.
