“I criticized Obama because I thought, you know, a president should have a little more dignity than — I mean, I realize that Woodrow Wilson went on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ once, but what president’s doing reality shows?” Spade told TMZ in a video posted on Sunday. “It just sounds weird to me, you know, it’s just too much.”

“Like, he’s on GQ — I’m like, leave that to Bradley Cooper,” he added. “You don’t need to go — the president, you’re above all of us, you’re above stars, you’re above everything. When he’s trying to get in the mix, like, I want to present at the MTV Awards — all right guy, you got it, relax.”

“It just seems a bit thirsty to me, that’s all.”

“I think that, you know, Michelle Obama’s on ‘Ellen’ more than I am. I mean, what first lady — it’s just a new world, it’s just I’m not used to it,” he said.

Spade earlier this month retweeted one of his followers who was critical of the president's appearance on Grylls's show.
