He may be the most powerful man on the planet but that still isn’t enough to guarantee you a reliable Wi-Fi signal, if the dilemma of US president Barack Obama is anything to go by.

CBS, Obama, Wi-Fi

Commenting on his tenure at the White House during a television interview with CBS timed to coincide with the Super Bowl Obama revealed that there were a ‘lot of dead spots’ on the estate with his wife Michelle adding: “It can be a little sketchy”.

It was the first time that Obama had been joined for the annual interview by his wife and daughters, Sasha and Melia, who chimed in by stating that they were ‘just irritated’ by the Wi-Fi situation.

Despite his tenure coming to an end Obama is keen to address the situation for his successor, although doubtless he will be hoping this to be Hilary Clinton and not Donald Trump.
