Obama and Reddit!
This week Obama being a little upset that Mitt Romney was getting all the attention with this Republican National Convention.. did what all frustrated famous people do when they are feeling a little left out…
He went on Reddit and did an “Ask Me Anything” session.
Now, Reddit, as you may or may not know, is that extremely popular website frequented by pre-pubescent boys and neck-bearded basement dwellers that is responsible for most of the latest Internet memes.
At first the Reddit community was a little skeptical that it was actually the President doing the chat.
Once convinced, all hell broke loose as people from all over the world flocked to the site to ask Obama important questions.
He passed over some of the most important questions, but did answer 10 very important ones, like who his favorite basket ball player is.
And another question about the White House beer…
And another by the user PartyInYourMouth (only in America, right?)
10 minutes into the session, the website died from all the traffic and Obama decided to check out some of the other things Redditers talk about.
Once the session was over.. Obama became so addicted to Reddit that it caused a little tension at home later that night.
So, what do you guys think about Obama doing an AMA on Reddit? And should Romney do one himself?
Let me know in the comments below and I’ll see you next week.
