    The logo is covered up with the Presidential Seal. Apple declined to pay the product placement fee?

    G. Bush also uses Macs!
    Bill Clinton i do believe.

    But those people are NOT cool!

    Dave McKean and Sonic Youth guitarists use Mac, now those ARE cool!

    Only if you lived in a cave in the last 10 years can you mistake an Apple laptop like that…

    Blasphemy!  Covering up the Apple logo with the Presidential Seal.  They could have put the seal just below the Apple logo.

    It was obviously a joke -.-

    Ironic, since I’m sure he’ll send the antitrust hounds to Apple quite soon (if not already) for being “too successful”. We can’t have that level of success in his Socialist America. (Unless you do it by selling millions of ghostly written autobiographies that is). Twitter should watch their backs too (if they ever make that socialist dreaded concept called, a profit).
