President Barack Obama became the first sitting U.S. president to appear on a daytime talk show Thursday, and didn’t disappoint the American people, as he dished with the show’s always-opinionated panel on everything from Lindsay Lohan to Snooki to Chelsea Clinton’s wedding.

One bombshell Mr. Obama dropped: “I was not invited” invited to Chelsea Clinton’s gala weekend wedding, he said, adding “it would be tough enough to have one President at a wedding — you don’t want two Presidents. “
Mr. Obama said that he believes he was not invited because “Hillary and Bill properly want to keep this as a thing for Chelsea and her soon-to-be husband.”
But just like in politics, things have a way of coming around.
“I’m letting you guys know now,” he joked. “You all probably will not be invited to Malia’s wedding.”
Then, the ladies of the panel got to see what’s on the President’s radar, and the results were all over the place.
“I’ve got to admit I don’t know who Snooki is,” Mr. Obama said, but “I knew Lindsay was in jail.”
And how about RadarOnline.com’s world exclusive tapes of Mel Gibson’s obscene rants against the mother of his infant child?
“I haven’t seen a Mel Gibson movie in a while,” Mr. Obama said.
The President said he’s not a Twitter user, but loves his iPod, listening from everything from Jay-Z to Frank Sinatra to Maria Callas on his Apple gadget.
“I do not have Justin Bieber on there,” he joked, showing again he’s got his finger on more than just the pulse of politics.
Mr. Obama, who appeared on the ABC staple twice prior to being elected President, said it was his wife’s fondness for the daytime talk show that made him want to set the new daytime TV precedent.
