David Spade: The Obama Family Is ‘Thirsty’ For Attention

Kaitlan Collins White House Correspondent

David Spade thinks the Obama family has done too much reality television.

In early December, the comedian criticized Barack Obama after he appeared on Bear Grylls’s show, and during a recent interview, Spade said the family is clearly “thirsty” for attention.

“I criticized Obama because I thought a president should have a little more dignity,” Spade said. “What president is doing reality shows? It just sounds weird to me. It’s too much.” (RELATED: The Internet Wonders: Are The Obama Girls’ Skirts Too Short?)

“Michelle OBama is on ‘Ellen’ more than I am.”

“It’s just a new world,” Spade said. “I’m not used to it. It just seems a bit thirsty for me, that’s all. I think they’re going to do fine, but they’re plotting after the White House.”

He added that Obama should leave the GQ magazine covers to Bradley Cooper. (RELATED: EXCLUSIVE: Malia, The Only Cool Obama, Plays Beer Pong During College Visit)
