Some users were convinced the former leader of the free world was among the 90 players to split a $2,000 prize during Wednesday’s 9pm HQ Trivia match.
I’m sorry to say that isn’t the case.
“President Obama is as competitive a trivia player as anybody, but he was celebrating his wife’s birthday last night with dinner and a play. In other words, not exactly the most conducive environment for gaming on a phone,” Katie Hill, the former president’s communications director, told People.
It was still fun imagining the 44th president sitting at a fancy restaurant with his phone out answering 12 questions as quickly as possible while the former first lady looked on in disbelief.
