SNL Alum David Spade Rips Obama… “A president should have a little more dignity …”
Former Saturday Night Live star David Spade was caught leaving a restaurant by TMZ and asked about criticizing President Obama for going on Bear Grylls’ reality show and other ‘movie star’ type behavior.
“A president should have a little more dignity … ” Spade told TMZ of Obama’s celebrity appearances. “I realize Woodrow Wilson was on ‘Dancing With the Stars’ once, but … what president does reality shows? It just sounds weird to me, you know what I mean? It’s just too much …”
He went on to say that “Michelle Obama is on ‘Ellen’ more than I am … It’s just a new world … I’m not used to it … It seems just a bit thirsty [to]me, that’s all.”
Spade also mentioned Obama’s GQ appearance.
“He’s on GQ? I’m like, leave that to Bradley Cooper … 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 wanna present at the MTV Awards!’ It’s like, ‘Alright guy. Relax. You got it.’”
Spade, a member of Saturday Night Live back when it was funny, was known for his regular skit called “The Hollywood Minute.”
