What President Obama Is Saying About Ellen DeGeneres’ Oscar Selfie!

Published

Remember when Ellen DeGeneres shut down Twitter with her Oscar selfie? Well the talkshow host reminded the nation’s President that she is indeed the reigning queen of the retweet.

“I don’t know if you know this, but I was aiming to break your record of retweets and I apologize for doing it, but I broke your retweet record,” she told Obama during an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday.

Being the sarcastic man he is, the President responded via satellite: “I heard about that. I thought it was a pretty cheap stunt myself, getting a bunch of celebrities in the background, feeding them pizza.”

During the 86th Academy Awards, Ellen, who killed it as host, took an amazing selfie with some of Hollywood’s heavy hitters. In an effort to get as many retweets as possible, DeGeneres took a snapshot with: Jared Leto, Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep, Channing Tatum, Bradley Cooper, Kevin Spacey, Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, Angelina Jolie and Lupita Nyong’o.

And to no surprise, the selfie went on to not only break Obama’s number of retweets from when he posted an image of himself and the First Lady after being reelected, but in the first hour, completely shut down Twitter.
