Move over Ed Rendell, somebody else is taking up the sword of dignity. Yes, Rosie O’Donnell is now slamming Obama for his appearance on ‘The View’. On Radio Rosie Obama ‘The View’ appearance is “fluff” she says. Rosie ought to know, being a former cohost of the ABC daytime gab-fest.
Rosie says Obama on ‘The View’ should never had happened. She told her audience on her Sirius satellite radio show that she has “mixed feelings”. Obama appeared on ‘The View’ twice before and Rosie doesn’t think “sitting presidents should do fluffy daytime TV shows.”
Not everyone agrees. White House press secretary, Robert Gibbs, is one among them. He believes Obama should appear where ever there are people to reach. “We made a decision to put the president on Jay Leno, David Letterman, ‘The View’, because that’s where — people have busy lives and it’s best to go where they are. And I think that’s what the president will do.”
Well, Gibby, Obama’s already done it. He taped today’s episode yesterday. During which, Obama apparently admits he does not watch ‘Jersey Shore’ and has no idea who Snooki is. Well, there’s something that we needed to know from our president. I suppose it’s better than more fluff from him about how hard he is working to create jobs.
Rosie does congratulate ‘The View’ for a “good booking”, but thinks they should have gone for Oprah instead. Rosie Obama ‘The View’ appearance today was a bad call. She has mixed feelings and gives it a thumbs down.
