Snooki has a low approval rating for the Commander in Chief. The infamous â€œJersey Shoreâ€ diva is feeling snubbed after President Obama said that he didnâ€™t know who Snooki was on a recent appearance on ABCâ€™s â€œThe View.â€
Snooki told E! Online reporter, Mark Malkin, â€œI know he knows who I am. Why did he have to lieâ€¦ He did say Snooki and JWoww about the tanning stuff [in May] and now he doesnâ€™t know who I am? He has to stop lying.â€
Snooki is correct in saying that President Obama mentioned her in May. During the White House Correspondentsâ€™ Dinner, he stated, â€œThis next provision [in the new health care bill] is called the â€œJersey Shore-Up.â€ It reads, â€œThe following individuals shall be excluded from the indoor tanning tax within this bill: Snooki, J-Woww, the Situation, and House Minority Leader John Boehner.â€
So, either he was lying on â€œThe Viewâ€ or someone else wrote his speech back in May. Either way, Snooki shouldnâ€™t expect to get an apology from the President any time soon. A day after President Obama appeared on â€œThe Viewâ€ and snubbed Snooki, he took the snub a step further. While speaking at the National Urban League Centennial Conference about education reform, he had this to say about Snooki:
â€œI was on the â€œThe Viewâ€ yesterday, and somebody asked me who Snooki was.Â I said, I don't know who Snooki isâ€¦ But I know some really good teachers that you guys should be talking aboutâ€¦ I didn't say the teacher part, but I just -The question is, who are we lifting up?Â Who are we promoting?Â Who are we saying is important?â€
President Obama knows who you are, Snooki. Heâ€™s just not impressed.
