Ellen DeGeneres Oops, No ID ... Still Wriggles into White House for Medal

11/22/2016 11:16 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1122-Ellen-DeGeneres-twitterEllen DeGeneres' face was apparently ID enough to get her past White House security with a bunch of other celebs getting the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Ellen says she forgot her ID and couldn't get inside for the ceremony, yet there she was next to Robert De Niro, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Bruce Springsteen, Michael Jordan, Diana Ross, Tom Hanks and many more.

We're guessing someone recognized her. Once inside they all did the obligatory Mannequin Challenge. Yeah, it's getting old hat, but this one's got the Boss ... so, pretty cool.

Prez Obama SAYS Kendrick Lamar would kick Drake's ass in a rap battle, but our leader showed some serious Canadian love Saturday night at The White House.

A paparazzo was in place at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave to record the whole thing ... Usher.

Who knew being President could be so much fun.

Breaking News

The Denver Broncos hit up the White House moments ago ... and President Obama wasted no time doing his best Peyton Manning -- dropping a few "Omahas" for the squad. 

The clip's pretty funny ... Obama roasts everyone from Von Miller to kicker Brandon McManus ... and jokes that he might be able to play WR for the Broncos. 

Of course, there were a few players from the Super Bowl championship team who were noticeably absent -- including Brock Osweiler (who's with his new team) and Aqib Talib (who's nursing a gunshot wound).

Hillary Clinton did what all modern-day presidential candidates do to stand out ... appear on "Saturday Night Live" ... but we gotta say, this one really is a stand out.

Hillary was playing a bartender named Val, who serves up booze to Kate McKinnon, who's playing Hillary.

It's hilarious ... Hillary nailed it.

Jay Z? Kanye West? Lil Wayne? Nope, not one of those prolific rappers has ever performed at the White House, but after yesterday's performance ... Big Sean can say he has.

Alongside pop pixie Ariana Grande, Big Sean took the stage at The 2014 Easter Egg Roll on Monday. Our photog in D.C. caught the pair on their way into the event, where he was understandably excited for the show.

While Common performed poetry at the White House back in 2011, no rapper has ever performed a White House event ... until now.

0427_lindsay_tom_getty_article1Tom Brokaw is a bully ... so says Lindsay Lohan ... who's telling friends the legendary journalist's harsh comments about her ruining last year's  White House Correspondent's dinner were totally uncalled for.

Brokaw refused to attend the gala this week, claiming LiLo ruined it for him simply by showing up last year.

According to our LiLo sources, LL isn't particularly bothered by negative comments -- BUT does feel the newsman is publicly picking on her for no good reason ... and that's just plain mean.

We're told if invited again, LiLo would be happy to go. She had a great time last year as Greta Van Susteren's guest and everyone was super nice to her, including Rick Santorum who took a photo.

So here's a song Tom can listen to, while NOT attending the event ...

Beyonce and Jay-Z

Jigga is in a head of state of mind.
