Barack Obama has been known for being the hippest president to date, anywhere around the world actually. When he went on Jimmy Fallon to chat about his Blackberry, we were all surprised to find out that what he moved to, could possibly be the worst phone in the history of the world.
President Obama had a Blackberry, which he then became the first president to have a Blackberry, but this year when the White House got him a new phone, he was super excited to move to something like an iPhone or an Android device. Unfortunately, Obama did not get what he wanted at all, instead, due to security issues, he was given something that sounds like a prehistoric cellphone. The device he explains, has no camera, apps, texting, or even music player. It is basically a land line phone, with no land line.
I was the first president to have a BlackBerry, and so years passed and no one else has BlackBerrys. Then finally this year they said ‘Good news Mr. President, we’re going to give you a smartphone instead of a BlackBerry.’ I thought, ‘Alright, this is cool … I’m excited, and I get the thing and they’re like, ‘Mr. President, for security reasons … it doesn’t take pictures, you can’t text, the phone doesn’t work, you can’t play your music on it.’
Obama describes the cellphone as something that a 3-year-old would play with for fun with all the stickers and musical sound effects when pressing buttons. We cannot help but feel sorry for him as he has no access to social media or anything. What does he even do when lying in bed at night?
