President Obama Unplugged
President Obama is caught making a few off the record comments at a fundraiser according to Associated Press reports. The most notable of which regarded technology inside the White House.
“The Oval Office, I always thought I was going to have really cool phones and stuff,” he said during a small fundraising event at a Chicago restaurant. “I’m like, c’mon guys, I’m the president of the United States. Where’s the fancy buttons and stuff and the big screen comes up? It doesn’t happen.”
The president made the unscipted remarks as he took questions after reporters had left the room. But the comments were piped back to Washington by mistake and into the press briefing area where a few reporters were still working.
