President Barack Obama CHATS IT UP On "The View" About Gay Marriage, Wall Street And Pop Culture

President Obama stopped by "The View" today to discuss a range of topics from Wall Street reform and gay marriage to fun stuff like singing at the Apollo. Watch clips inside.....

 

Earlier today, President Obama stopped by "The View" where he was initially expected to make his first public announcement about same-sex marriage (but that was later trumped by a "GMA" interview with Robin Roberts).  After a little good natured ribbing about the scoop, he talked to the ladies about a wide range of subjects.

When asked if he ever got angry with Vice President Biden for being so outspoken, he said that he appreciated honesty and persons who speak their mind.

When speaking about gay marriage, he trumped up the importance of the word "marriage" saying civil unions made gay couples feel "different."  He added that he knows this is a hot button issue but didn't think it would be a deciding factor in the election.  He thinks the economy will be the biggest issue.

During one funny moment, Sherri asked him if he thinks the election will be "tight" and the President joked, "When your name is Barack Hussein Obama it will always be tight!"  The crowd loved it.  

When talking about Chase bank, he said that even smart people make mistakes.

And when Elizabeth asked how he would grade his administration, he said he'd give them an incomplete.

And just to show you that he is in "the know" the ladies quizzed him on current events and pop culture.  He knows all about the Kardashians, watched The Avengers, that Sherri was on "DWTS," loves "Homeland" and "Mad Men."  BUT...he told the ladies he didn't know about the 50 Shades of Grey craze.

We also learned fun facts like "sports" are his guilty pleasure, Air Force One does get turbulence, he quit smoking because of Sasha and Malia, he coaches Sasha's basketball team, he loves guacamole and chips, and the First Lady Michelle is a little bit "jealous" that other folks get to hear his singing voice.

Also, he added that Sasha and Malia love "Modern Family."

It saddens to me to see

It saddens to me to see people who are ignorant on politics and government affairs switch out their vote because of a view that does not affect them. Obama stated but the media is not glamorizing is that he is a Christian and his faith goes against the concept. Be he does not agree with it but he knows that with being Christian you are not to judge, that is up to God but he does feel like they should have rights in regards to healthcare, their living etc. They are an inferior group of people just as African Americans ago were and still is in regards to stereotyping, prejudice, etc. Also, if you are not going to vote for him for this issue then you are not voting based on the overall picture but on one simple viewpoint that once again does not affect you then that is sad. Mitt Romney would be another Bush and you see where that got us. Clinton needed 2 terms to turn the nation around and Obama needs the same. Bush destroyed the nation in a month and during his second term he demolished it. So go ahead, continue with your rant about Obama supporting Gay rights and not vote for him and see where will be in the upcoming years. Stop being an emotional voter and instead be a smart one. I don't agree with Obama on everything but I do believe he has great intentions. Can you say the same about the another person. Think about that before November when you don't vote or vote for the other person.

Dito...Standing Ova! Its not

Dito...Standing Ova! Its not a religious issue if that's the case everyone who is not Christan should be denied their rights as well. This is a human rights issue I don't care who or what u sleep with as long as your not hurting anyone or breaking the law your sexual prefrence is your business.This is not Americas biggest problem! You wanna band something Band Divorce so people will take marriage seriously..wait then the murder rate will go up lol oh never mind...

All this god talk is plain

All this god talk is plain silly, unproductive and delusional. Adults blathering about imaginary friends, superstition and super-natural nonsense. Religion poisons everything , takes away the ability to think rationally. Leading people to think that they are only accountable to a supreme dictator when in actuality we are responsible and answerable to each other. Gleeing morals from a 2000 yr old book, a mashup of fables and hearsay. All this church going , prayer and praising still has black people poor, uneducated and disproportionately backward in all aspects. This god character sure doesnt hold the majority of the faithful in too high esteem does he !? Why, because there is no god.

I don't like him anymore!! he is very wishy washy and I feel like he is a ppl pleaser. I feel like him trying to be "COOL" with everybody makes ppl loose respect for him. He said he would deal with the health care issue and he didn't and I feel like him supporting gay marriage is just another way to get more votes. he does NOT have my vote!! AND yes i'm BLACK!!!

If black people don't vote

If black people don't vote for this man because simply based on whether or not he agrees with gay marriage, you are dumb as F**K, plain and simple. Mitt Romney doesn't care about you at all. You don't agree with gay marriage, you don't have to morally support it. Leave it up to God to condemn, human beings have no right to make decisions for others.

I don't understand why people

I don't understand why people would not vote to keep him in office. We are not voting for gay marriage. If you listen to his statement, he said that it is left up to the states. So, if you don't want gay marriages in your state then vote for it. But when it comes to the President , there are a lot more important issues to base your vote on rather than just one issue that he is not really pushing anyway. President Obama is a politician not a preacher. He based his answer on politics not on the bible. They asked for his political view not his personal views. As the president he can not let him personal view come into play. It has to be a political answer. Why on earth would someone base their vote on one issue- gay marriage- when changes are it will not pass the state level anyway. There are a lot more important issues to base your vote on like the economy, education, health care, jobs, gas prices and the list goes on and on. The fact is you can't take away someones rights because they are gay. They have the same rights as anyone. I can't force my religious view on someone just like they can't force their views on me to say that it is ok to be gay. Religiouly it is wrong to be gay anyway so what is the difference between being gay and being gayand married. Sinning is sinning. It has nothing to do with how the country is run.

He should say what he likes

He should say what he likes regarding gays after his reelection. So many blacks voted for him solely because he was black, they are not going to feel this way if they gotta pick between him and what they pastor is telling them. Dont loose the bible belt and church goers because they were the main folks voting soley because he was black

Everyone reading this came

Everyone reading this came from a man and a women. This is what God intended. My vote is for God!!! Everything he does makes sense. Man created homosexuality, so many people are brainwashed. Wake up people. For those of you that were abused, I will pray for deliverance. Some people are gay because they think it's cool or they are freaks. I will pray for you as well.

You really sound ignorant.

You really sound ignorant. You can't make a blanket statement about all gay people. As a gay man who grew up in the church, I know I was born this way. I prayed heavily and hard for God to "cure" me from it, it never happened. I wish people stop hiding behind religion and the bible to condone their own hatred. And I'm tired of heterosexual people thinking they have the privilege of telling me I'm living in sin. Go to hell!! It amazes me that homosexuality is such a hot topic in our community, when there is so much mess we have to clean up as a community.

George W. Bush had two-terms

George W. Bush had two-terms to get the United States in most of the predicaments that we're in now...So President Obama should be given two-terms to improve our current conditions. If this Republican candidate gets voted into office, there are going to be many people with financial problems in worse situations. Believe that!!!!!

Obama I love but you fuck up

Obama I love but you fuck up once you agree on same sex. That’s all I will say. Gay population is what in United States...maybe 5% ok...most black people DO NOT support same marriage…well even thou I will like for you to win again…am not sure, let’s keep our fingers cross

What has all that got to do

What has all that got to do with the fact that saying and agreeing about same sex marriage is right? That will greatly hurt his election for Nov? Two wrongs do not make a right, same sex is wrong. God is shaking his head up above. Who am I to judge? But one thing I know it will hurt his election. Trust me. I love him but…
CASHING' OUT 's picture

It will not hurt his

It will not hurt his election. The fact is most black ppl do not agree with same sex marriage however most of which were not even aware of what his original election campaign was based on. As far as the black community goes most will vote for him the 2nd time for the same reasons they did for the first. Whether he believes in gay marriage or not I would rather him than Romney regardless of his position on it. You stated that the gay population is only 5% but remember that is the reported number I'm sure the other hefty percentage of in the closet citizens will benefit from the ability to vote privately!! President Obama is a smart man I am almost certain it was strategically planned this way.
