Ellen DeGeneres may be the queen of cracking jokes, but it turns out White House security is no laughing matter.
On Tuesday, as the talk show host arrived at President Barack Obama's stomping grounds to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the TV personality realized she didn't have any identification with her.

And while the funny lady's identity is undeniable — after all, her famous face is EVERYWHERE — security STILL turned her away, leaving the comedienne stranded on a bench outside.
Ellen took to Twitter to document the sad moment (above), captioning the silly shot:

We love that she recycles looks, just like a regular person!
Michelle Obama spoke at the Congressional Black Caucus awards banquet on Saturday night and she looked gorgeous!
FLOTUS donned a black, pleated one shoulder Michael Kors gown that she wore back in June to the Presidential Medal of Freedom ceremony, but she re-accessorized giving it a different look and feel for this event.
Her jeweled belt spiced up her ensemble, and made it look festive, which was perfect for this occasion!
Really, MObama can do no wrong in our fashion book.
