With Michelle Obama traveling to China with her daughters, President Barack Obama is fending for himself in the White House.

"Mr. President, Michelle said she's out of town, and she wanted to know, did you make your bed this morning?" DeGeneres asked via satellite on Thursday's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Barack and Michelle Obama: Why We Won't Let Our Daughter Sasha Go On Facebook

Originally posted 11/30/2013 07:00PM

It's a question a lot of parents of teens and preteens struggle with: how much access should their kids get to sites like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram?

President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, told Barbara Walters in a sit-down interview on ABC's 20/20 on Friday that while their oldest daughter, Malia, 15, has limited access to Facebook, her little sister, Sasha, 12, isn't old enough for that.

"I still am not a big believer in Facebook for young people ... particularly for them, because they're in the public eye," the first lady said. "Some of it's stuff they don't need to see and be a part of ... So we try to protect them from too much of the public voice."

President Obama Pardons Thanksgiving Turkeys – Which Was Crowned Big Bird?

Caramel and Popcorn are delicious together, but neither snack-named turkey will be eaten this Thanksgiving, as both were formally pardoned by President Obama on Wednesday.

Popcorn was the winner of the public vote and the star of the official bird-pardoning ceremony, though the runner-up, Caramel, will be spared as well.

"And now, before these turkeys get away, with the power vested in me, I want to grant Popcorn a full reprieve ... from cranberry sauce and stuffing. We wish you well," Obama said. (Watch the clip below to see how it all went down.)
