Obama Calls Ellen's Oscars Selfie A 'Pretty Cheap Stunt'

Posted: Updated:

During an appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" Thursday, President Barack Obama jokingly jabbed the popular daytime host for her Oscars selfie, which broke the record for the most retweeted photo of all time -- a record previously held by the president.

Joining the show from what DeGeneres called the "Ellen Blue Room" in the White House, Obama called the Oscars selfie "a pretty cheap stunt."

"I thought it was a pretty cheap stunt myself, getting a bunch of celebrities in the background, yeah. You feeding them pizza, yeah," Obama said.

Obama appeared on the show to promote Obamacare.
