President Obama Flays Ellen For Breaking His Twitter Record

Though we know that he mourns deeply inside, President Obama laughed-off Ellen stealing his Twitter retweet record with her "pretty cheap stunt" at the Oscars. 

"I don't know if you know about this, but I was aiming to break your record of retweets and I apologize for doing it," Ellen told the president. "But I broke your retweet record."

"I heard about that. I thought it was a pretty cheap stunt, myself, getting a bunch of celebrities in the background, you feeding them pizza."

Since posting it, Ellen's Oscars group selfie has been retweeted more than 3 million times, vastly out-benching Obama's 2012 "Four more years" image (which as to-date received nearly 800,000 retweets).
