President Obama on ‘The View': Snubs Snooki, Passes on Mel Gibson (VIDEO)

By: Celebuzz / July 29, 2010

Sure, President Barack Obama is the Most Powerful Man in the World and might have a few pressing issues of international importance to deal with, but as far as the ladies of The View are concerned, there’s only one thing that matters: His take on the pop-cluture issues of the day.

The Chief Executive faced off against Joy Behar, Whoopi Goldberg and the gang on Wednesday, displaying his knowledge—or lack of knowledge—on the recent goings-on in Celebrity-Land. Asked if the thought that Mel Gibson—who’s had a few not-so-nice things to say about minorities in recent weeks—needs anger-management training, Obama remained diplomatic, hedging,

“I’d like to go back to the Afghanistan question…Look, I haven’t seen a Mel Gibson movie in a while.”

Behar also asked the President if Jersey Shore charmer Snooki should run for Mayor of Wasilla—a position once held by his former political opponent, Sarah Palin. Obama’s answer?

“I’ve got to admit, I don’t know who Snooki is.”

Guess we won’t see a Secretary of GTL position being added to the Cabinet anytime soon. Check out video of Obama’s appearance on The View below:
