Tell us how you really feel, David Spade. The ‘Joe Dirt’ star aggressively dissed President Barack Obama, when he criticized the leader of the free world for appearing on so many reality shows. In a video captured by TMZ, David actually calls President Obama ‘thirsty.’ Watch here!
David Spade, 51, threw major shade at President Barack Obama, 54, and wife Michelle, 51, for appearing on so many different reality shows, talk shows, magazine covers, etc. In fact, he believes they’ve recently become embarrassing to the office. Watch his candid admission here.
“I criticized Obama [in a tweet on Dec. 14] because I thought, you know, a President should have a little more dignity. I mean, I realized Woodrow Wilson went on Dancing With the Stars once, but what President’s doing reality shows? It sounds weird to me, and it’s just too much. I think, you know, Michelle Obama’s on Ellen more than I am. I mean, what First Lady?… It’s just a new world. It’s just — I’m not used to it, and they’re out. It just seems a bit thirsty to me. That’s all. I think they’re going to do fine, but they’re sort of plotting for after the White House. Like he’s on GQ. Leave that to Bradley Cooper. You don’t need… 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 got it,” David told TMZ in a lengthy tirade.
As you’ll recall, President Obama recently appeared on an episode of Running Wild With Bear Grylls, which obviously annoyed the Joe Dirt actor. In the TMZ video, David is actually referencing his Dec. 14 tweet, in which he said, “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?Wtf ?”

The actor makes some good points, but labelling the President as “thirsty” might be a bit too much.
