David Spade is continuing to slam President Obama, calling him and First Lady Michelle Obama “thirsty” and without “dignity” for regularly appearing on TV shows. See the video below.

This is the second time in the past few weeks, Spade has attacked Obama. As Gossip Cop previously reported, the comedian voiced his disapproval of the president’s appearance on the NBC outdoor adventure show “Running Wild.” On December 14, Spade tweeted, “Why is Obama on Bear Grills trying to survive in the tundra? Isnt the idea to keep the prez alive? And why is he on a reality show? Wtf?”

Now, in a new video, Spade further attacks Obama’s December 17 appearance on “Running Wild with Bear Grylls.” When asked by a videographer about it, Spade reiterates, “What president is doing reality shows?” adding that it’s “weird.” He goes on to say, “I thought a president should have a little more dignity than that.” Spade also criticizes Obama’s appearance last November on the GQ “Men of the Year” cover, noting that one should “leave that to Bradley Cooper. You’re the president. You’re above all of us.”

Spade says the First Lady is equally too interested in fame. “Michelle Obama is on ‘Ellen’ more than I am,” cracks Spade, who feels their appearances are “a bit thirsty for me.”
