US President Barack Obama is notching up his cool points fast.
The president joined Ellen DeGeneres on her popular chat show yesterday live from the White House.
Ellen, who recently hosted the Oscars, used the rare opportunity to check in on Obama while his wife and daughters are visiting China.
She also used the opportunity to gloat to Obama over beating him with the most retweeted tweet of all time.
The US President previously held the accolade with a photo of himself and First Lady Michelle after he won the last election, but DeGeneres surpassed the ‘Four More Years’ tweet at the beginning of this month with her celebrity-crammed Oscars ‘selfie’.
Obama joked that it was ‘a cheap stunt’ to fill her ‘selfie’ with celebrities.
He also told the nation, and the internet beyond, that his bed remains undressed when Michelle is away.
“I’ve been eating healthily though,” he joked, “I had some carrot sticks with my potato chips.”
