Much to the apparent chagrin of @BarackObama’s faithful, a retweet record has fallen:

This selfie pic from Ellen DeGeneres at the Academy Awards has broken the record for the most retweeted picture ever:

Degeneres’ photo broke a record held by @BarackObama:

It’s a collective letdown for Obama faithful who don’t want the “four more years” retweet record to fall:

Somebody call the WAHmbulance.

    what are these people gonna do when he has to leave office….

    • xristosdomini

      Probably retweet the “four more years” pic again and call for a repeal to Presidential term limits…

      • conservachick

        sweet baby jesus these people are so lame. honestly, its scary as hell to think of people getting upset over this.

        wars breaking out, chaos, destruction. the breakdown of the family. the disintegration of morals, and you get pouty because of …..THIS?

        and besides, ellens photo IS way cooler.

      • AMERICAN Kafir™✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        It’s a good thing that Twitter made it so you can only retweet something once. Ellen’s has surpassed 2.3m by now, a far cry from the paltry 778k the squatters @ the WH got.

    • Ice Cold Troll

      Heh heh heh. One can only hope…..

    • Conservative First

      Vote for him again, just like when they die.

      Don’t worry. I understand the constitution and know he will have to leave office.

  • xristosdomini

    Wow, really, liberals? At least we know that, to them, the first black president is more important than the first nationally embraced lesbian…

  • Grace656

    Really people, read a book or something.

  • Informed&Concerned

    We DID deserve President Palin . . .

    Libs have shown the true WAR ON WOMEN . . . dissing Ellen
    oh wait . . . WAR ON LGBT ??

    oh, wait . . . Is Bo going to make more phone calls now?

    • tops116 ✓Quipper

      “oh wait . . . WAR ON LGBT ??”

      It wouldn’t surprise me if those tweeters spent last week bitching about Arizona. Oh, the irony.

      • Informed&Concerned

        The TRUE irony is that the AZ SB1062 . . . almost word for word, btw . . . was signed into FEDERAL LAW in 1993 – BY CLINTON

        (introduced by a Democrat & signed into law – intended to protect Native Americans, but IS A FEDERAL LAW)

          Like most laws passed to protect an oppressed (in the eyes of liberals) minority, AG Holder would refuse to enforce them if they were used to protect a majority member.

  • Jens Johnson

    Think Twitchy should of given us a warning about the Obama picture, nearly spit up my beer. I wonder how these obamabots will get the brown off their nose, once he is out of office. Is saying they are brown nosers’ being racist?

    • Anti-Leftist Action

      Everything’s racist now.


    I RT’ed it, just so I never have to see that vomit-inducing picture of those fascist pigs again.

  • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Get a grip, people. Ellen may have more re-Tweets now, but she’s still just a talk show host after all. She doesn’t have the Almighty Pen and Phone to accomplish her Executive Orders or to shill for Degenerativecare. And that’s a GOOD thing– right, you imbeciles? Or do you care?

    • tops116 ✓Quipper

      “At this point, is there really a difference between Obama and a talk show host”… is what I said one week into this administration. The other 265 days have indicated that there is a difference: a talk show host has a better work ethic and a better ability to talk.

      • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        And a talk show host can’t just keep on giving us the same old song and dance all the time.

        • Nan

          Doesn’t Ellen dance on her show? Or doesn’t it count unless she’s also singing?

    • 3seven77

      She’s just a talk show host. But she’s done more work than either of the Obama’s have ever done.

  • Amanda Davis

    *Sigh. These people make me tired. I prefer the honest liberals… You know, the ones that truly believe in crazy Utopia Socialist Unicorn No War Free Bunny Land? They actually have the guts to dislike the POTUS because of all of his broken promises re: Gitmo, Amnesty, transparency, etc.

  • ashknothole

    You mean to tell me he’s not the second coming?

  • tops116 ✓Quipper

    And who says liberals are a hateful bunch with extremely skewed priorities?


    Why do they have a problem with Ellen’s picture anyway? Is it because there are only two black people in front of the camera? If that’s the case, then where’s their complaining about MSNBC.

  • TVree

    I’m retweeting the Oscar pic — and I don’t care about the Oscars at all! I’m doing this because I know, somewhere, another lib cries just that much harder.

    • Informed&Concerned

      I re-tweeted it to break a record . . . didn’t know whose record and stated on my page — “Probably belongs to Sheen or someone equally ick”

      How profoundly true THAT turned out to be.

    • AMERICAN Kafir™✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      That’s why I retweeted it.

  • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Sometimes I’m a bit disappointed at how you otherwise intelligent people get swept up by this nonsense. Remember, you’re supposed to be above being seduced by the Summer’s Eve nozzles in the entertainment industry like the average liberal moron is. Please stop acting like schoolgirls.

  • ClinkinKY

    Just watched 4 hours of self-important elitist a**holes praise each other for their make believe contributions to society.

    C-Span is getting unbearable:)

  • RanierWest

    I might just RT to shatter Obama but nah, plenty of lunk heads have already

  • Robyn

    I found the bit to be about four minutes too long. It seemed the night was less about “honoring achievement in film” (read: Hollywood self-aggrandizing) and more about Ellen farting around in the audience… but then again, I’m one of the (seemingly rare) people who just don’t think she’s funny.

    • Nan

      I’m right there with you. I didn’t watch the Oscars; I no longer have tv but ellen was never funny.

  • RanierWest

    instantblock garyhe 😉

  • thedumbblonde

    To hell with the Obamas and the Oscars (nice pic)…too bad we didn’t have Twitter back then—>

  • Chip

    Fixed. All is right with the world now…… (much sarcasm intended)

  • Jerome Goolsby

    I’m no big fan of Degeneres – but NICE JOB and congrats.

  • ernst1776

    Obama and his supporters are all so thin-skinned. I am sure the Obama’s publicity team is devising a plan to regain the prestigious “most retweeted’ record.

  • WHMay

    That’s okay folks, just retweet the pic of the Obama “Mission Accomplished” banner when the Russians retreat from Ukraine.

  • fireandreamitchell

    Obama photobombed Ellen’s selfie. He couldn’t take it that she would pass him for the retweet record.

  • AlmaAlma

    I must be terribly boring. I can’t even fathom retweeting a pic of stars having a selfie. What for?

    • tom

      I don’t even have a Twitter account. Can’t think of a single good use for it, other than making fun of idiot Libs.

  • Steve Borchard

    Can someone PLEASE tell me the facination with Tweeting? It is an insanely awful format to look at visually and who CARE! about what 500,000 people have to say about ANYTHING?! millions of pointless comments.

  • AMERICAN Kafir™✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Funny conversation going on at the previously most retweeted Twitter pic evah. Check it out =>

    Mod, please remove the pic, but not the link, if you can. I don’t want to see this trash, lol.

    • neoface

      Is she attacking him??

  • Mr_Wrestling_XIII

    Homophobes much? Congrats Ellen!

  • K.E.Miles

    More Ellen re-tweets than successful Obamacare sign ups.

  • BumbaK

    Ellen took away the biggest accomplishment of the Obama administration.

  • gridlock2

    We should be so lucky to have President Palin. At least she would have gotten the Ukraine right. And there would be no such thing as Palincare.

  • Acethepug

    But remember, it’s not a Cult … all the evidence to the contrary notwithstanding …

  • jabberwocky

    Do these idiots still really like Obama? Ellen could do a better job than him

  • Frogmouth

    Never fear. The WH twitter account will post a pic of President Mom Jeans viewing the tweet of Ellen’s pic and congratulating her on making history.

    How do you knock over an old lady to get into a picture on TELEVISION then beat up a guy and sue him for taking a picture on a public street ?

  • Ryan Johnson

    When is the whining about there being no blacks or asians (which, admittedly, have it far worse than black people in hollywood) in the picture going to begin?

    Edit: Gotta get my eyes checked!

  • ManaMoffa

    Umm, they hired a company to retweet it. . It wasn’t cheap

    It was all to fight the very real reality that many people don’t find Ellen funny or entertaining

  • Dawn9476

    These people don’t speak for all Obama supporters but I am not surprise Twitchy is making it like they do. I also find it funny that you hate President Obama so much that you are defending one of the biggest proponents of gay marriage in Hollywood and supports everything President Obama has done on the issue.
