There is a lot of criticism on the right of President Obama seeming to be more interested in being a celebrity than a President. Now, there’s even criticism from actual celebrities. Or, at least David Spade.
David Spade thinks President Obama and Michelle have gone over the deep end and are becoming downright embarrassing to the office.
David was leaving Craig’s when he groused about the President appearing on a reality TV show, GQ and Michelle becoming a staple on “Ellen.”
Listen carefully to what David’s saying … sounds like he thinks this is all a prelude to what we’ll see when they leave office.
There are two ways to look at this. One is that Obama has been brilliant in using non traditional mediums to promote himself, his message, and his policy. The “paparazzi Presidency” was the plan from the beginning. From purely a strategic standpoint, conservatives should take notes and find ways to emulate it (see Marco Rubio All Over TMZ. Why It’s A Good Thing…).
The flip side, when the world is on fire and you already seem out of touch to a disconcerting degree(see Obama Right Before Paris Attack: ‘ISIS is Contained.’ No, Seriously. He Said That…,) maybe you should focus more on your job and not a guest spot on “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.” You know, especially when you don’t drive and aren’t a comedian. Just a thought.
The point is, you can use new media and the current entertainment environment without going off the deep end. Just because you go on Jimmy Fallon, doesn’t mean you have to become President Kardashian.
