President Barack Obama Is Taking Questions On Reddit From His MacBook

If you’ve been watching Twitter, you know that U.S. President Barack Obama is participating in Ask Me Anything (AMA) on Reddit. While celebrities and tech personalities will often opt to use Reddit as a tool for fan engagement, this is the first time anyone as high up as the big ‘O’ himself has jumped on board.

You can find Obama’s AMA thread here, but Reddit seems to be buckling under the weight of traffic. If you can’t get through, try hitting refresh.

Obama has been spotted using Apple products multiple times in the past, and is a self-admitted fan. During one interview he noted that Steve Jobs had personally given him an iPad “early.”

    ‘If you can’t get through, try hitting refresh.’ Seriously? That’s the worst advice you can give. All hitting refresh is going to do is make the problem worse, take a look at the cartoon on the heavy load page. Perhaps a better piece of advice to give is to suggest readers use a different web browser to access the thread, one where they are not signed into Reddit as this actually works.

    Because of course you can try again without loading the webpage. genius

    Why don’t people the tough questions. When the White House beer recipe gets released is hardly what I would call a Presidential question.
