Watch Barack and Michelle Obama moan about bad White House Wi-Fi

Bad Wi-Fi is the bane of our all existences, including the POTUS and FLOTUS.

The Obamas have shared their ongoing Wi-Fi troubles in a new video interview released today.

The pair were filmed for a morning piece by CBS News, during which they shed light on the White House’s dodgy internet.

Check out the video below (quote at 5:00):

“The whole tech thing, we’ve been trying to get that straight for the next group of folks, because it’s an old building, and there are a lot of dead spots where Wi-Fi doesn’t work,” said Barack Obama, the 44th President of the United States.

Michelle Obama, the First Lady, added that: “The girls are just irritated by it”, referring to the couple’s two teenage daughters.

The President also revealed that the pair’s Super Bowl 50 snacks included “wings, pizza, nachos, guac”.

The construction of the White House was completed way back in 1800, but it didn’t get an official Wi-Fi network until 2012.
