Siri slaps down reporter at White House press briefing

Siri has been involved with some pretty memorable moments as of late, whether it’s saving the life of a teenager stuck under a truck, or asserting itself as the new voice interface for Apple TV.

Now you can add shutting down questions about Barack Obama’s Iran policy to the list!

Check out the hilarious video below.

The scene took place at a White House press briefing event yesterday. As the journalist asks White House spokesman Josh Earnest about whether or not Obama is saddened at being unable to secure Republican backing for the Iran nuclear agreement, Siri is accidentally activated and pipes in with, “Sorry, I’m not sure what you want me to change.”

Geez, talk about shutting down a line on questioning! Maybe Siri’s spontaneous political advice is the real reason Obama’s not allowed an iPhone.

As one YouTube commenter puts it, USA now stands for Unexpected Siri Appearance.
