The White House response says that the Map Room is part of the president's residence they believe is a legal location for video-taping Obama promotional materials.
The Executive Residence is the central building of the White House Complex located between the East Wing and West Wing.

By law, a president is allowed to make such videos, so long as they are done in a portion of the White House that is considered part of the "residence".

This is a technicality, in comparison to something like torture, which is clearly illegal.
So if they got away with torture, they'e going to get away with recording a video in the White House.
Meanwhile, if you're black, you'll be in prison for 20 years for drugs.
The elite are above the law. Sad but true.
